Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game 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!

  1. 5 out of 5

    If I could give this game more than 5 stars I would! I wasn’t sure what to expect the first time I played this. Zombies are everywhere these days and it’s easy to think that people are just trying to cash in on the genre, but oh man, this takes things to a whole other level.

    This game takes the zombie survival genre up a notch. Not only does it bring you the bleak realization that at any second the zombie horde will ravage your small shanty town settlement. That as the survivors in your community perish the zombie horde only grows stronger. That as your community grows, the problems grow. This game takes into account so many of the real life survival factors that would actually present themselves if this situation happened in real life.

    Taking all of that into account the game sounds great already, but each player has their own secret objective to win and it’s possible that one of the players is up to no good and their winning objective involves traitorous sabotage. So as you’re working together in co-op mode to save your settlement, the constant worry that one of your comrades may be actively working against you is constantly in the back of your mind. So much fun!

    The last time I played this game my character was actually the traitor. The twisted tale I wove to get my fellow players to turn against each other was beautiful in its machinations. Ah, such a good time!
