Our objective to win the game was to deplete two non-colony locations of their resources. So far, so good: no casualties, morale still safe, and zombies at bay. The Hospital was nearly empty, with the School not far behind – we felt close to success on our first playthrough. Then crisis struck: Overpopulation! Too many useless mouths to feed. This crisis required that we submit food cards directly, as well as feed the colony normally for the turn. We were struggling to do either, unable to find enough food in any of the locations we tried. We reached the last player’s turn, knowing that we couldn’t fulfil the crisis’s requirements, nor feed the colony. The penalty for not completing the crisis would be the death of two survivors. We accepted this, came to terms with it, and sent the two ill-fated souls out on their last desperate mission to find more food. No such luck.

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.

I've been looking for a game in this genre for a while, something that not only covers the theme, but incorporates the survival element, the relationships between survivors and the inevitable escalation - DoW doesn't disappoint. The rules seem complicated to start with, but as soon as you play a turn, you realise that they are not, also included is a handy crib sheet for all players to have. When you play, at first things seem easy to manage, gather supplies, food, fuel weapons, even the number of zombies on the board seem manageable, everyone working together for the good of the colony...then something happens, someone makes a questionable move, leading to paranoia, food gets scarce, zombies start adding up... And... Then there are the, quite frankly, brilliant crossroads cards, which add to the narrative, through some real curve balls and morale dilemmas.

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!

This game here, this darn game! I've played it through four times now and not once have we been able to fend off the hordes of zombies marching toward's our starving survivor's colony. If it's not the main objective that gets you, it's your own personal objective, and if not that then that round's crisis will get you, and if not that it can be starvation, or frostbite, or random events that happen every player's go, or being eaten alive!

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.

Birthday present for my 12 year old son, he loves it, first Co op game we have played and it is great, loads of missions and variables to keep you working together, Quite intense as you never know if your close to winning until it happens really. Quality of the game pieces and cards is excellent and the online tutorial is a handy tool to refer too. Delivery was quick and packaging was good.
