Zombies are massing to make a run at your real estate and they're bent on world domination in updated takes on the classic game franchises, Monopoly and Risk. Brought to you by USAopoly—and available exclusively from Diamond Comic Distributors— MONOPOLY: The Walking Dead Survival Edition and RISK: The Walking Dead Survival Edition games are both slated for a September 2013 release. Kirkman's groundbreaking The Walking Dead graphic novels were #1 in sales for the past two years.

“We're extremely excited to be working with USAopoly and Robert Kirkman's Skybound imprint at Image Comics in what promises to be two great games that are destined to be bestsellers for retailers,” said Bill Schanes, Diamond's VP-Purchasing.

Despite its post-apocalyptic setting, MONOPOLY: The Walking Dead Survival Edition (Diamond Item Code: APR132229: SRP: 39.99) delivers classic Monopoly wheeling and dealing game play. Players vie for, and then must fortify, the prime real estate and resources that will sustain their lives. There's only one victor that will outlast the others - whether living or undead - when all is said and done. This completely customized game features six collectible tokens, optional speed play and a fight to the finish!

In RISK: The Walking Dead Survival Edition (Diamond Item Code: APR132230: SRP: $49.99) it's a fun, new twist on classic Risk game play. USAopoly will debut a brand new map set in the southeast region of the United States where players battle and scavenge for their very lives. Contending for survival at every turn, gamers must not only fend off attacks from the living who compete for precious, limited resources upon which their survival depends , but they also must maintain their self-preservation from the unrelenting hordes of the undead that would feast upon them. A new deck of "Supply Cards" will add strategy, fun and flavor to this classic tabletop game. Gamers can expect a fast-paced game of attrition and survival, where this time—the last man standing wins!

Both games are offered for pre-order in Diamond's April PREVIEWS catalog, which hits the shelves of comic book shops on March 28th. To pre-order the games, find a comic shop near you at www.comicshoplocator.com or call 1-888-comicbook. Retailers interested in purchasing the games are encouraged to contact Diamond's New Accounts Department at [email protected] or via phone at 800-45-COMIC.
