Product Description

** For updated information about when this will be available, please see our Dead of Winter page **

Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game is an experience that can only be accomplished through the medium of tabletop games. It is a story-centric game about surviving through a harsh winter in an apocalyptic world. The survivors are all dealing with their own psychological imperatives but must still find a way to work together to fight off outside threats, resolve crises, find food and supplies, and keep the colony's morale up. Dead of Winter has players making frequent, difficult, heavily-thematic, wildly-varying decisions, that often have them deciding between what is best for the colony and what is best for themselves.

  1. Spectacular Experience 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2015

    This game is fantastic! Right from opening the box I could see that the material quality was excellent from nice, detailed, thick cardboard standees with sturdy plastic bases (30 survivors, 30 zombies, 60 bases), a sturdy board, and really nice item/crossroads/survivor cards. My only complaint so far for the materials has been that the location cards are thinner and tend not to lay flat, so they are easily bumped and can spin a bit, even with cards and standees placed on it. All the tokens, dice, and everything else were good too, and the game came with plenty of sealable bags to help organize pieces for storage. Overall the quality of the pieces is great.

    The game rules and scenarios that I have played with so far have lead to exciting games where we have been quite invested in the successes and failures of our colony. Players will have several survivors to control during turns with options to kill zombies, travel around town and search for supplies, build barricades and much more. During your turn you will be balancing the needs of your colony (having enough food and a clean living space), countering crisis events which threaten the safety of your group, and achieving a main objective, which can be anything from taking samples from zombies hoping to develop a cure/vaccine to hastily searching the town for all the goods you can before your group moves on. The game is easily customizable allowing players to choose easy or hard mode difficulty for the main objective, the option to include the possibility of a traitor who seeks to undermine the group, and if a family-friendly (well friendlier, zombies and violence are inherent to the game) version is achieved by removing marked cards that involve drugs, sexual content, and more intense violence.

    This is my second Plaid Hat Games title (the first being Mice and Mystics), and I am quite happily looking forward to getting more of their games.

  2. Much More than Just Another Zombie Game 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Feb 2015

    Ordered during a back order (a stage this game may stay in off and on for a long time) and waited a moth or so for it to land on my doorstep. That night my friends and I got the game out and played 3 consecutive games, starting late in the day and staying up until 5 AM!!! It was worth every minute of it. I highly recommend looking at a few reviews on youtube to see some of the game play and if it looks interesting pick it up.Also look for future gems from Plaid Hat with the crossroads mechanic as this was a great story element that adds tension to the game and gives players something to do on other people's turns.

  3. Great Game, Well worth the wait 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Feb 2015

    Pre-ordered and waited. After several months Plaid Hat Games finally sorted out their issues and this wonderful package landed on my doorstep. Great flavor, quality components, hours of play value. Easily going to take up a place in my group's regular playlist. Would wait again for a title of this value.
