THE WALKING DEAD: NO SANCTUARY—designed by the award-winning team of Adam and Brady Sadler—is the game fans of The Walking Dead have been waiting for! Cryptozoic is proud to introduce this intense new 1-4 board game based on the hit AMC TV show. The game redefines the survival horror genre with gameplay that emulates the group dynamics from the series, as one player takes on the reins of Leadership and the other players can decide whether or not to support his or her choices. With stunningly detailed miniatures, get ready to play as your favorite characters like Rick Grimes, Glenn Rhee, Andrea Harrison, and—of course—Daryl Dixon.  The Walking Dead © 2016 AMC Film Holdings, LLC.

 Gameplay

This isn’t your typical survival horror game in which you attempt to eliminate each other and take out as many of the undead as possible. In THE WALKING DEAD: NO SANCTUARY, you have to work together to win. One player becomes the Leader and tries to get the others to follow his or her Approach. If the other players defy their Leader, Trust falters and Stress builds. This can result in a new Leader taking over and in Group Tension, which can reduce Morale. If Group Morale hits zero, you all lose. Likewise, if one of the survivors dies, the entire team loses. In other words, you better find a way to work as a team!

In the game, each player picks one of four Survivors, each of whom comes with unique character boards and card decks, allowing him or her to perform abilities that directly reflect the character’s attributes on the show. Players must cooperate with their teammates to overcome six different Scenarios, which draw from the show’s storylines and consist of several objectives each.

 

The endlessly riveting gameplay will take you right into the world of The Walking Dead, as you experience all the horror, action, and drama of the TV show!

The miniatures in the game are 35mm and utilize a 95-degree PVC process, making them sturdy and highly detailed, yet not brittle. With our painstaking attention to detail on the sculpts, you can be sure the minis will resemble their counterparts from the TV show.

The base game includes stunning figures for the four playable characters—Rick, Glenn, Andrea, and Daryl—as well as for the different Walkers and other antagonists. Each expansion will come with an additional four playable characters, as well as more Walkers and miscellaneous other figures.

WHY KICKSTARTER?   

Two words: fans first. That’s Cryptozoic’s motto and it’s exactly why this project is on Kickstarter. During (and after) the campaign, the fans get the chance tell us what they like and don’t like. The end result? A better game. And the more support we get from everyone out there, the more amazing stuff we can add to the Kickstarter versions of the game. Get ready for some EXCLUSIVES that are so awesome they may reanimate the dead!

Check out the different tiers and add-ons and get the version of the game you want.  

SHIPPING  

We’re proud to announce that Shipwire will be our fulfillment partner for The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary. Shipwire is an Ingram Micro Company with over $50 billion in annual revenue that partners with over 20,000 companies and utilizes 132 distribution centers worldwide. They have a proven track record that makes us confident that you’ll get your games, stretch goals, and add-ons as fast as humanly possible.

Their global network of warehouses are conveniently located in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. Because of this global footprint, the first copy of the game and the last copy will all be delivered in the same 30-day window, no matter the size of the package for your order.*

*Some countries in South America and Africa may fall outside this window, but they will still receive a timely delivery.

Everything will be delivered to you in consistent and highly secure packaging, ensuring your game arrives in the same condition it was first shipped. In the very rare case that something does arrive to you with a problem, getting answers and replacements will be straightforward and easy. There will be a single customer service source for all backers without any mixed messaging or confusion.

We have saved the best for last: Everyone will receive a tracking number. When your game is ready for delivery you will receive at least two emails. The first will have your tracking number and a notification that your order is being prepared. The second email will arrive shortly thereafter and will let you know that your package has left the closest Shipwire warehouse and is headed directly to you.

All of this boils down to one thing: The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary backers will get their games before it is sold at retail!

Shipping will be charged after the Kickstarter campaign ends through our Pledge Manager. The amount charged will be based on the ACTUAL cost required to ship you your games, stretch goals, and add-ons. Depending on where you live, we’ll either ship from the EU, Asia, Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers), or here in the States (backers in the U.S.A. and the rest of the world).

To give you a sense of shipping costs, it will likely cost around $10 to ship to the U.S., $15 to Australia, $15-$25 to the EU and Canada, and $50 to South America and certain parts of Asia. Please remember: These are rough ESTIMATES, so the cost of shipping may be higher or lower depending on the stretch goals unlocked, the tiers you specify, the add-ons you select, and other choices you make.  

You have our guarantee that we will do everything to get you all your rewards as quickly as possible and before it hits retail. The most exciting part of backing the game on Kickstarter is that you’re going to get a special version of the game at a special price, with exclusive items you can’t get anywhere else!  


This game is AUS, CAN, and EU friendly. If for some reason your courier charges you VAT fees, we will reimburse you. However, we are not responsible for taxes incurred in other countries outside of the EU (including but not limited to Brazil).

Risks and challenges

The estimated delivery date of THE WALKING DEAD: NO SANCTUARY is July 2017. But as fans of The Walking Dead already know, life is filled with unexpected challenges. So, there’s always the chance there could be a delay during production and shipping due to various factors: manufacturing issues, walker-infested shipping freighters, strange viruses that bring the dead back to life. At Cryptozoic, we are committed to giving you a gaming experience you’ll never forget and we won’t deliver the game until we have reached that high standard. If there are any delays, we’ll let you know right away.
