|Description:||KoW is a new concept for mass battle miniature wargaming – a game that is easy to learn and fast to play, yet will take time and experience to master. With few and simple rules, there is little to get in the way of the fun and slaughter. KoW is a challenging game of strategy, where you can pit your wits against your opponent without devoting half of your brainpower to remember a plethora of convoluted rules.|
And that’s not all, the innovative turn structure allows you to play KoW using a time-keeping tool (like a stopwatch or a chess clock) to time your moves. As the seconds tick away, the pressure and excitement this adds makes KoW unlike any other large-scale wargame you’ve ever played before.

The Walking Dead Week: What’s in Wave Five?
In today’s blog, we’re looking ahead at what’s in store for Wave Five of the The Walking Dead: All Dead All Out War. As you should hopefully know by now, Wave Five focuses on the Hunters. This is one of the last significant groups Rick encounters before he settles in Alexandria and then it all kicks off with Negan! As with previous waves, the heart of the next wave will be a brand-new expansion: Fear the Hunters. And, just like previous entries into the series, Fear the Hunters will add new rules to make the game more challenging and exciting for players. VETERAN SKILLS One of the most interesting elements about wave five is that the Fear the Hunters expansion and the supporting booster packs contain Veteran Skill cards. These are special rules that you can purchase for your Survivors when choosing your group. These are treated just like Equipment cards, except they don’t take up a slot, and are always in effect. They can be applied to existing characters – they are not exclusive to Custom Survivors.   Veteran Skills will be a great way of mixing up your gameplay with existing characters by giving them a little boost. [...]

A more in-depth look at Here’s Negan
Following yesterday’s announcement about Here’s Negan: The Board Game – which is heading direct to stores this November – today we’re lifting the lid on how the game plays. Oh, and make sure you grab a ticket for the Mantic Night at GenCon so you can try the game for yourself in just a couple of weeks.   REPUTATION IS EVERYTHING One of the key elements in Here’s Negan is the idea of reputation. Although the game is a co-operative experience for up to five players, you’re all trying to impress the main man! During the course of game, Negan will reward his loyal lieutenants with Reputation Points for performing well. If you kill a Walker, clear a room or lower the threat, Negan will be pleased. But if you perform badly, Negan will deduct Reputation Points from your total. At the end of the game, the players will combine all their rep to see how well they’ve done. However, the player with the most reputation will be declared Negan’s favourite. As such, there’s a competitive element as you all want to be declared Negan’s little slugger. DON’T PISS OFF NEGAN No one gets to play as Negan himself. Instead [...]

The Walking Dead Week: The Governor’s Trophy Room
Kicking off our new releases for The Walking Dead: All Out War is the iconic Governor’s Trophy Room! This is a super-detailed Limited Edition resin set, produced in-house here at Mantic HQ. It’s designed to be used as terrain in Woodbury using the Made to Suffer expansion – fitting perfectly into the appropriate room marked on the gaming mat. You could even combine this set with the Woodbury Housing Estate to recreate Woodbury in fine detail. Ideal for collectors and gamers alike! The focal point of the set is, of course, the Governor’s ‘trophies’. The heads of those who have displeased the tyrannical leader of Woodbury are stored in fish tanks, on display for his own amusement (and personal brooding time). Each of these heads is individual and the selection even includes the head of Scott Moon – infamous for asking why the Governor needed the fish tanks – and finding out the reason. Brian Blake, The Governor While the scenery is great, this set also comes with two miniatures ready for your games of The Walking Dead: All Out War. The Governor is my personal favourite sculpt of this character, cutting a very imposing figure as he stands with [...]

Ronnie on what’s coming up for The Walking Dead…
Kicking off our latest Walking Dead Week, Ronnie is here to talk about the future of All Out War. When we first thought there was a chance we would get a license to make a game based on The Walking Dead we had a lot of conversations about what type of game we should make. Should we do a simple board game to bring the game to as wide an audience as possible? Or should we develop a more open-ended skirmish game, so fans were free to recreate all the adventures of Rick and his crowd – and to see if they could do any better? We also wanted to make sure that everyone got a chance to see their favourite character come to life – and no board game would ever do that – because the comic’s story lines cover so many different and interesting episodes. The game we made got a fantastic response on Kickstarter, and that helped us develop the story all the way up to Alexandria. We have Rick finding his family outside Atlanta, heading to the Greene Family Farm, and then on to the Prison; and just recently we saw Rick and The Governor going [...]
