Dead of Winter is a 2 - 5 player meta-cooperative psychological survival game. This means players are working together toward one common victory condition — but for each individual player to achieve victory, he must also complete his personal secret objective. 


Dead of Winter
, the first game in this series, puts 2-5 players in a small, weakened colony of survivors in a world where most of humanity is either dead or diseased, flesh-craving monsters. Each player leads a faction of survivors with dozens of different characters in the game.

Dead of Winter is a meta-cooperative psychological survival game. This means players are working together toward one common victory condition — but for each individual player to achieve victory, he must also complete his personal secret objective. This secret objective could relate to a psychological tick that's fairly harmless to most others in the colony, a dangerous obsession that could put the main objective at risk, a desire for sabotage of the main mission, or (worst of all) vengeance against the colony! Certain games could end with all players winning, some winning and some losing, or all players losing. Work toward the group's goal, but don't get walked all over by a loudmouth who's looking out only for his own interests!

Dead of Winter is an experience that can be accomplished only through the medium of tabletop games. It's 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.

All the cardboard that's in

All the cardboard that's in this game always put me off I much, however, the game play more than makes up for it. Plenty of mini challenges and trigger events going on to keep you busy. There are several different missions that let you play for less than one hour to several.

Overall a great game! I've

Overall a great game! I've played a few times now in groups of 2 and 4. While it is more enjoyable to play in a larger group, my husband and I have great fun playing just the two of us. It is a bit tedious getting through everything when you are first learning, but we managed to get two non-game playing friends completely addicted!

Had our first go at

Had our first go at Dead of Winter last night, and it was excellent! Lovingly made with high quality game pieces, engaging stories and great playability. Compelling gameplay, multiple objectives and hard decisions to be made. Highly recommended.
