The MONOPOLY: The Walking Dead Survival Edition game is now available to purchase in comic book specialty shops.

Players fight for, and then must fortify, their prime real estate and resources to sustain their lives. The game takes over the characteristic of The Walking Dead as the properties all correspond with the series landmarks such as the prison cells, Greene Family farm house, Woodbury, and more locations. Game tokens resemble key items from the series such as Rick’s sheriff hat, bucket of body parts, the telephone, and the R.V. And instead of using money to purchase property, players must trade in essential supplies such as food, ammo and fuel to gain more territory on the board or to place a guard tower or wall instead of the standard houses and hotels, to secure their properties from invading zombies.
