Update - Kickstarter Backer Exclusive #4

We love Michonne, and were thrilled that we could finally get her in the game. And really, what's better than having one Michonne? Two, of course! 

For our next Backer Exclusive preview, take a look at the variant Michonne. She's got a slight advantage over the main box Michonne, as she can pop out her pets at the start of the game, while also getting her toughness up right from the start. We think you'll love playing with this Michonne.

Update - Kickstarter Backer Exclusive #3

Continuing our preview of some of the cards from the Kickstarter Backer Exclusive Expansion Pack #1, a card that allows you to use your opponents strengths to get you out of a jam...or two.

And remember, this one is only for backers!

Update - Kickstarter Backer Exclusive #2 & Week 2 Digital Badge!

First up, we're pleased to announce the Kickstarter Backer Exclusive Expansion Pack #1! The first expansion pack has 5 cards for the Encounter deck. 

Here's a look at the first of the five cards, for Kickstarter Backers ONLY!:

We'll also be releasing the Week 2 Backer Digital Badge shortly.

Update - Kickstarter Backer Exclusive#1

We are pleased to reveal our FIRST Kickstarter Backer Exclusive! Every backer at the "In The Camper" level and above will receive our Kickstarter Backer Exclusives...and ONLY backers will receive them. These exclusives will not be available to anyone other than our backers as our way of saying "Thank You!"! 

And did we mention you'll get them for free? No need to do anything - they'll be in the box with your game.

First up: You can't survive in the wild without support, right? Well, check out THESE Followers:

They may be a little stinky, but they can help get you out of a tight spot. You'll get them both, and they're only available to backers.

Keep an eye out for more Exclusives to come!

The Walking Dead The Prison - Board Game focuses on the events of issues 13 through 24: the discovery of, fight to clean out, and struggle to control…The Prison.

The Walking Dead The Prison - Board Game will have an MSRP of $49.99. Backers of The Walking Dead The Prison - Board Game will not only be first to receive the game before it is in stores, but also will have the opportunity to purchase the game at a lower price and have access to Kickstarter exclusive game components and rule sets.

After months in the wild and on the run, Rick, Lori, Andrea, Glenn and the rest of the survivors find the ultimate survival spot outside Atlanta, Georgia: a fenced in prison, still in good condition.

Of course, it’s filled with zombies that need to be cleared, and before the survivors can do that they learn all too quickly that they aren’t the only survivors seeking refuge inside the prison. With existing tenants (Dexter, Axel, Thomas and Andrew) to handle and new group members to integrate with (Michonne), the challenge of living in the prison isn’t just about fighting zombies...

The survivors end up struggling with each other for control over the group's fate.

This is the setting of our game.

The Walking Dead The Prison - Board Game is a new, stand-alone board game in which you and up to five of your friends take on the role of one of the six leaders of the group from Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead: Rick, Tyreese, Glenn, Dale, Andrea, and Michonne.

The goal of the game? To earn enough Leadership Points to take control of the entire group of survivors.

To earn Leadership Points, they must fight their way through the zombie swarm in the prison yard, bash their way through the prison itself, reach their destination and secure the area. Along the way, players will have to collect additional resources, rescue Followers, and as expected...fight zombies.

Anyone who has played the first game will be familiar with many of the features and mechanics in this sequel.

The Walking Dead The Prison - Board Game  is both a stand-alone game and an expansion module to the first game, easily converting the first game into one half of an epic.

Components are subject to change,m and do NOT include Kickstarter Backer Exclusives.

The Walking Dead The Prison - Board Game is a labor of love. We at MegaGigaOmniCorp and Top8Magic are huge fans of the comic book, and cherish the opportunity to bring it to life for other hardcore fans of the game like us. We take great pride in our track record of creating games based on stories that we are tremendous fans of (Lost, Alice in Wonderland, and more), and are thrilled to continue that legacy of faithful and innovative adaptations.




By supporting The Walking Dead The Prison - Board Game, YOU will be helping to not only make this game a reality, but also helping us bring more value to our players than if we were pursuing a traditional retail model.

We are two small gaming companies, and while we may have a very strong brand license, we still have to develop, design, produce, manufacture, ship, market and sell our product. So, every little bit helps.

In addition to showing that you’re a fan of The Walking Dead and getting your copy before it hits store shelves, you’ll also be creating unique opportunities to make the game better.

Our website, WalkingDeadBoardGame.com, frequently receives all sorts of requests from fans that aren’t always practical in a traditional business model, but now through Kickstarter become possible!

As a tremendous and heartfelt thank you for your support, we are going to give you some amazing rewards, from additional, better components to enhanced features and customization. We’ll even be able to offer Kickstarter backers the chance to get themselves into the game through their own unique character cards or the chance for a few backers to become characters in every copy of the game produced.

So, if you ever wanted to see how you would look, feel and survive in the world of The Walking Dead, here’s your chance!

The primary goal of this Kickstarter campaign is to produce copies of the game, The Walking Dead The Prison - Board Game. Additional funds will go towards expanding the game and creating better components, and providing additional marketing support.

We’re excited to present the following rewards for backers, as our way of saying thank you to each and every one of you for supporting us.

 Are you a retailer? Contact us for information on purchasing advance copies of the game for your store!

You can find out more about the following Add-Ons on this special page on our website.

                      

Risks and challenges

As with all physical products, the biggest risks we face are issues with the physical production and delays in shipping.

The good news is almost all of the game development is completed and we fully anticipate being done before the end of the campaign.

As you can see in the images we’ve included, the artwork is also underway and our artist is working feverishly to get everything completed. The artwork from the comic book has already been selected and is being added to the cards now.

Our research on the backer rewards is almost complete and we’re ready to put them into production based on the necessary volume.

The manufacturer is already queued up and pre-production work has begun.

Thank you, again, for considering backing The Walking Dead: The Prison Board Game!
