The Governor arrives in Woodbury 4/2

By Kat Metzen

The Governor has been terrorizing the Survivors long enough, and it is time to do something about it. In a few weeks you will finally be able to do something about it in the Woodbury Expansion to the best-selling The Walking Dead Board Game: The Best Defense.

The Woodbury Expansion  brings a whole new challenge to an already desperate group of Survivors. The Survivors may now visit the Woodbury Location and take their chances with its new challenges, while avoiding the Governor (or he’ll gun down anything in his path)! The Governor is an automated game piece on the board that moves to a new Location each round and creates plenty of panic. However, with careful planning and a few risks, crafty players can get The Governor to help clean up pockets of Walkers. Just don’t get too close to him when the bullets start flying or you might get caught in the crossfire!

The Woodbury Location is added to your standard game set-up by placing it adjacent to two of the four starting Location tiles in the original board game. 

Survivors sneaking into Woodbury can take their chances with the new Woodbury Resource deck. These cards have big highs and devastating lows. However, as a well-maintained and protected enclave, the good stuff outweighs the bad… and there aren’t very many Walkers to deal with there!

You can't always save the world one zombie at a time. Sometimes you like to be the bad buy. In this expansion we created a new “Versus Mode” where one (evil) player takes on the role of The Governor and works against all of the other Survivors! The Survivor players must win the game as a TEAM or else The Governor player wins it all for himself. You can never underestimate the Governor, and neither do we, so this expansion we increased the total players in your party to allow up to five players to play at once when someone is playing the Governor.
