Take on zombies and other survivors in Dead of Winter: Warring Colonies

8 May 2017 by Jerodev

"Surviving a zombie apocalypse is hard anyway, but now another colony has settled on the other side of town and took a lot of our resources. We have to end this right here and now!"
Last week, Plaid Hat Games used these words to announce their new expansion for the cooperative zombie survival game Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game. The game will have the name Dead of Winter: Warring Colonies and took a look at what will be in the box.

Dead of Winter is a board game in wich players are survivors in a zombie apocalypse, together you start a colony to make sure you stay alive and get through a hard winter. Players can send their characters to different places in the city to search for weapons, objects, and other resources, but you have to take into account the chance that a zombie might be there as well.
Be sure to keep an eye on your fellow colony members as well because there is a slight chance that there is a traitor who only cares about his sole survival.

The new expansion, Warring Colonies, adds a second colony to the equation for players to join with their characters. Apart from zombies, players will also fight other survivors in the battle to survive. Your colony will have to be the first at the locations to get the best resources and survive the winter. This new colony also adds the possibility to play the game with up to 11 players.

This character plays all alone and is not a part of one of the colonies. The lone wolf has her own agenda to survive and completes missions that are unknown to the colonies, but the missions can influence what happens to the colonies greatly.
