We're getting stuck into the Participation Game proper and that means we get a briefing from Rob as to what the Survivors have to do.

It's gonna get strange rather soon we reckon!

The First Few Turns Take Place

17 Comments

Things are all going a bit wild right now but it seems like people are ready to get stuck in and start doing wild things.

There have been a few moments where they've been battling zombies, some wild attempts at bribery of those refereeing the game and a bit more beside.

Sophia has managed to find herself a gun and some gory clothing though so everything is good for at least one survivor!

The First Few Turns Take Place

The Survivors Press Forward

30 Comments

We rejoin Rob quickly to see how things are going within the Chaos.

Negan is making a name for himself although there are a few times where people have got into melee. Guns seem to be the name of the game right now.

Who is going to get a hold of the keys and the fuel?

Quick Catch Up With Ronnie

38 Comments

While the game is going on we grabbed Ronnie for a few minutes and got chatting about the Boot Camp and how we've enjoyed it!

Don't worry, more participation game IS coming...

Justin Starts Cheating!

28 Comments

Justin, since he's filming, has decided to try and sneak in his own personal piece of kit onto the battlefield.

I wonder how Ronnie is going to respond to that? On top of that there's utter chaos breaking out across the board.

Ronnie’s Fair Game Mastering…

40 Comments

Ronnie Renton is a pinnacle of gaming excellence and would never use his powers for evil...or would he?

Let's see how he behaves as a GM during this particular phase of the game.

Tim…I think you’ve turned mate!

12 Comments

With all of this undead mayhem happening it makes sense that one of us got turned into a Walker!

Wild Moments & Mistaken Rolls…

37 Comments

Sometimes in the heat of madness our GMs forget what's going on...or entirely misconstrued the outcome of dice.

Have you ever wondered what it's like to see a sad Ronnie Renton? It's also safe to say you should NEVER diss your GM.

Negan Finds The Keys!

34 Comments

It looks like Dawn, controlling Negan, has managed to find the keys and now he just has to make it to the chopper and escape with the gas too.

Forget The Chopper! Hide In A Box!

Forget The Chopper! Hide In A Box!No Comments

Apocalyptic Mayhem…

35 Comments

It seems somewhat apt that there is utter chaos erupting and the GM's are using their powers for both good and evil.

We stop in with Ronnie again and see how his swings in mood are changing the fates of the survivors!

Light ‘Em Up – It’s Molotov Time!

37 Comments

It's time to see just how catastrophic a molotov is going to be against waves and waves of Walkers coming the Survivors way.

We do like the smell of burning walkers in the morning...well, late night.

Fuel For Abraham’s Fire!

29 Comments

Clambering atop the tractor Abraham has managed to snap up the fuel and will be trying to make it to the chopper without getting smashed up by Negan!

Will he be able to make it?

Friends Or Foes?

First Code Winner & Carl Dies!

32 Comments

With Carl dying...that has to earn a code for some goodies from Mantic Games.

When you think about it, it was destined to happen!

Codes & Cruelty

31 Comments

We get stuck into some more giveaway goodness and hand out more codes as people start to die left, right and centre.

Goodies Overhaul…

45 Comments

It's time to see how the goodies are being given out and what the state of play is right now...

It’s Time For The Pub…So, Mid-Season Break?

54 Comments

And that is the end of that! We're going to call it for the night and a mid-season break.

How will the climax turn out? We may come back to this in the morning!

A Boot Camp is exactly what I need. To be able to go somewhere else away from all the distractions to learn and do some serious gaming. This Walking Dead game is one of the best in giving the player the right feeling of anxiety in a zombie apocalypse.

This is one of the few Mantic kickstarters i haven’t pledged for. Never watched the Walking Dead, but the coverage so far has been great. Hope Day 2 is as good as Day 1.

The terrain looks awesome. To quote some lines from Dawn of the dead.

Francine Parker: What are they doing? Why do they come here?
Stephen: Some kind of instinct. Memory of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.
