an endless tide

Mantic has announced that wave 2 of the Kickstarter for The Walking Dead: All Out War is on schedule to ship in May.  I've already talked about some of the new stuff coming out in May and June here, but now they have a whole new wave of exciting stuff coming in March.  All of these are pre-orders, and are scheduled to start shipping March 24th.

So I'll start with the big tease.  They have been putting out pictures of parts of this all week, and now it is revealed.
Well, you didn’t really think you were going to get through this without getting punished, now, did you?
Line them up.

My mother told me to pick the very best one
and you… are… it…

People are, of course, always asking what is in Wave 2?

Well the "Something to Fear" pledge includes the farm expansion
Glenn finally arrives

Add on's include the Prison
Includes Michonne and her 'friends'
and Woodbury expansions.

Rick after he loses his hand, and the Governor after he loses his eye and arm
With these releases (and the retailer exclusives coming this summer (I so want Ezekiel and Shiva!)) this game is expanding to where it can be truly competitive, as there will be enough survivors to everyone is NOT taking the same ones, and we can explore new factions as well (as right now the only factions are Rick's group and the Saviors (and only Negan for those))).

All these new toys (and new episodes of the show) (I know this is based on the comic, but I'm a few issues behind there (sorry, I don't pick it up monthly (I prefer the huge phone-books, but can't wait four years for each) so I pick up the chapters as they come out)

Because it is all fun and games . . .
