OMFG Of The Day: Skybound Working On Board Game Based Upon ‘The Walking Dead’!

As Robert Kirkman’s “THE WALKING DEAD” continues to grow exponentially in popularity due to the recent success of AMC’s small-screen adaptation of the horror drama, it is only natural that the series would begin to branch off into other forms of merchandising. So while you will have to wait a bit for those Slurpee cups, fans will be excited to know that publisher Skybound Entertainment has paired up with game developer Z-Man to bring them an all new board game based upon the monthly from Image Comics. The bad news is that you will have to wait awhile to actually PLAY the game, but below you can get all the details thanks to MTV.com.

Here’s An Excerpt From The Article Over At MTV.com
