Dead of Winter

Dead of Winter box cover artFrom the Publisher:

Dead of Winter is a meta-cooperative psychological survival game. This means the players are working together toward one common victory condition--but for each individual player to achieve victory, they must also complete their 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 only looking out for their own interests!

Chart indicating Dead of Winter requires 2-5 players, plays in over 60 minutes, features horror, spooky, zombies, and post-apocalyptic themes, and offers cooperative, dice rolling, hand management, and variable player powers mechanics
