Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game TL;DR Review

Dead of Winter TLDR board game review

Dead of Winter is a meta-cooperative 2-5 player board game that sees the players pitched together in a small, weakened colony of survivors in a zombie filled post apocalyptic world. Where the game gets its name is its frozen setting. Not only are the survivors dealing with a zombie outbreak, lack of food / resources and possible betrayers within their own colony, they're also dealing with bitter cold.

Dead of Winter also integrates a sweet betrayer aspect which can be (but not always) woven into the overall story. In short Dead of Winter is a must buy game, beautifully devised and crafted. Once you've got your head around the rules, Dead of Winter is a thematic wonder that soaks the players in its storytelling. It's little surprise it's won a multitude of awards.
