If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, you’ll love The Walking Dead game list I put together!
My husband and I are huge fans of The Walking Dead. We’ve been watching it since the very beginning, and we look forward to Sunday night every week. We have a lot of friends and family who are also fans of the show, so we thought it would be fun to host a The Walking Dead game night. Doesn’t that sound like tons of fun? I think so!
There are actually quite a few different Walking Dead games out there to choose from. I love how they have revamped some of my favorite classic games into Walking Dead games. Take a look at the list below, grab your friends and family, and host a fun Walking Dead themed game night!

The Walking Dead TV Board Game – Fight your way through zombie-infested Atlanta with your fellow survivors in The Walking Dead game. Grab some weapons to clear a path or visit destinations like the old folks’ home, the department store and the CDC. In order to be successful in this The Walking Dead game, you must find the tools you’ll need to live another day. You can take on the role of Rick, Andrea or one of the other hapless survivors, and scrounge for cool weapons like a shotgun or crossbow. Keep your eyes open for new allies, but watch your back. When supplies start running low, it’s every man for himself. If you can make it back to camp with enough gear to defend yourself and those you still care for, you win The Walking Dead Game!The Walking Dead Board Game: The Best Defense – This is a cooperative board game in which players take on the roles of Rick, Glenn, Daryl, Michonne, and other characters. Survivors must defend the Farm, the Prison, the Town and the Highway from Walkers in order to stay alive. The game board is assembled at random for each game so there is variability in the locations. This game includes a 25-card resource deck containing either Equipment, Allies, Food or Ammunition, which is placed at random on one of the locations.
Walkers and other hardships are triggered in different locations by a 48-card Event deck (every card is unique!), which players draw from each round. Players must then figure out how to minimize the effects of these events, using dice to resolve combat and determine the outcome of some events. Survivors can work together to combine their combat abilities or split up to cover more ground. If the Survivors don’t clear the Walkers out of a location, they’ll lose resources. If any resource deck runs out, the players lose the game. Players need to keep the Walkers at bay while not using up too many resources themselves.
This game is unique because it includes a leadership role that a player can take for one or more rounds. Each player character has an exclusive leadership ability that provides a bonus while that character is in charge.The Walking Dead Trivia Box Board Game – Impress your friends and family with your knowledge about The Walking Dead in this trivia game!
The Walking Dead The Prison – This game is a follow-up to the original best-selling 2011 game. In this game, players must work together to escape while fighting for leadership.
The Walking Dead Monopoly Board Game – In this game, players fight for, and then must fortify, the prime real estate and resources that will sustain their lives. All of the properties correspond with the landmarks from The Walking Dead, including the prison cells, Greene Family farm house, Woodbury, and more locations. Choose from game tokens that resemble key items from the series such as Rick’s sheriff hat, bucket of body parts, the telephone, Katana and the R.V. 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. The player that outlasts everyone else wins.The Walking Dead Trivia Game – This game includes 300 trivia questions that were crafted by The Walking Dead fans! USAopoly Risk: Walking Dead “Survival Edition” Game – The classic Risk board game is revived with a new twist. This game is designed for three to five players, and set in the southeastern part of the United States. Players must fend off attacks from the living who compete for precious, limited resources upon which their survival depends, and also maintain their self-preservation from the unrelenting hordes of the undead that would feast upon them.
Adding to the playability of this classic board game are “supply cards” that can add strategy, fun and flavor to the game while maintaining the pace of game play. Just when you think the game is headed in one direction, a twist to the narrative can put another person in power.
