Dead of Winter
Crossroads is a new series from Plaid Hat Games that tests a group of survivors' ability to work together and stay alive while facing crises and challenges from both outside and inside.
Dead of Winter is the first game in this series, designed by Isaac Vega and Jon Gilmour. It puts 2-5 players together in a small, weakened colony of survivors in a world where most of humanity are 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 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!
- Ages 12+, Players 2 - 5, 60 - 90 minutes

With our possible moves for that turn exhausted, we proceeded to the next phase, already knowing the fate of our tragic survivors. We resolved the various stages as per normal, failing to feed the colony, resulting in starvation for that turn and the deduction of one morale point – no problem, still two remaining. We moved on to the crisis, which we hadn’t completed, and selected the two survivors to meet their doom, removing them from the board. Then we remembered a minor detail in the rulebook – the death of a survivor results in the loss of one morale point. Overpopulation claimed two of our survivors, and to our horror, we realised it also reduced us to 0 morale, ending the game. So close, yet so far!
None of us had completed our secret objectives, so we were all losers.Read more ›
I've played it four times already, and each time has been varied and interesting. The number of variations the game has, from the sheer number of survivors, scenarios, game modes, hard core mode, it has replayability in spades.
And did I mention hard? I've yet to 'win' a game, and it doesn't really matter, I keep coming back for the experience it gives for anywhere between 45 mins to 2 hours. Its funny, devastating, it will question your morales, it will give you tense fist biting, eye covering moments and it will destroy you in equal measure, but you will have fun doing it!
Best money I ever spent was on this. You not only get an amazing game the the amount of detail that's gone into making it is insane, the amount of cards and pieces you get, a lot of them just for fluff and aesthetics, is amazing. It's so well made I honestly think it's now ruined other games for me by raising the bar so high! The fluff and lore that's in the game too make each and every time you play a new and exciting story that will have you on the edge of your seat and probably in tears from loss and frustration by the end.
10/10 would weep uncontrollably again.
WARNING: Game has a lot of rules so I suggest watching their online tutorial first before you dive in. Also the longer versions can take up to 5 hours. But there are short versions which take max an hour thirty minutes.
