Mantic Games is releasing its take on The Walking Dead: Here’s Negan! comic book with a board game set for release on Nov. 19, 2018.

Mantic Games is teaming up with Skybound Entertainment to deliver a board game iteration of the immensely popular Walking Dead Here’s Negan! stand-alone comic. Just to give an idea of how coveted the Here’s Negan! comic is, last July one (in brand new condition) sold on Ebay for $912.13 plus shipping. According to Mantic’s official blog, the new board game will see up to five players team up as Negan’s would-be lieutenants. As one of Dwight, Sherry, Laura, John, or Tara you’ll be responsible for clearing Sanctuary of its Walker infestation.

Despite looking cooperative at first glance, eliminating Walkers is only part of the game, players will also have to earn favor with Negan as well. Meaning, doing whatever it takes to gain Negan’s respect and admiration through reputation points. Failing to impress Negan on his journey to becoming the leader of the Saviors and essential king of Sanctuary earns a meeting with Lucille. As Walking Dead fans have learned throughout the course of the series… There are no follow-up meetings with Lucille.

The Walking Dead: Here’s Negan! board game includes 19 ultra detailed pre-assembled plastic miniatures, 16 double-sided game tiles, dice/tokens, and 12 elaborate scenarios telling Negan’s story. Ronnie Renton, CEO of Mantic Games commented about the excitement of the Here’s Negan! project.

"The Walking Dead: All Out War Miniatures Game is our most successful retail product ever and we’re delighted to be working with Skybound Entertainment to explore this untold chapter of Negan’s history. Here’s Negan! is a totally unique game that sees players working together but also gives them the opportunity to screw over their teammates to impress Negan. It’s co-operative and competitive so you’ll need to watch your back!"

You can pre-order The Walking Dead: Here’s Negan! board game ahead of its Nov. 19, 2018 release date today on Mantic Games’ official store. Those who pre-order will receive exclusive free cards to use Dwight, Sheery, Laura, John, and Tara as survivors in The Walking Dead: All Out War.
