The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary is Cryptozoic’s latest release based on the hit AMC TV show. It was successfully funded on Kickstarter, and will be available for purchase in retail stores later this year.

Players assume the role of one of their favorite characters – Rick, Glenn, Andrea, Merle, Shane, “T-Dog”, or Daryl – playing a unique leadership mechanic in which players take turns assuming the role of the group’s leader. Each turn, the leader must choose the group’s approach by drawing two event cards and choosing one. Since players cannot discuss this decision, the pressure is on the leader, and the leader alone will pay the price if the group is unable to follow the approach for the turn. Make enough bad decisions, and the leader may have to relinquish his role and let the next survivor take charge of the group.

Two expansions are already planned for release – Expansion 1: What Lies Ahead and Expansion 2: Killer Within.
