Due to a scheduling conflict, we’re moving the Dead Panic release party back 1 week. We’re now going to hold the event on Saturday, December 21st, but we’ll keep all the other details the same. The games will be in stores before then; we’re just rescheduling our shindig.
The party will run from 12:00 to 5:00 at Wonko’s Games and Toys, and there will still be zombie cake and a costume contest as well as more undead than you can shake a stick (or chainsaw) at!

Troll in the Corner recently posted their take on Dead Panic. The result? It turns out Trolls and Zombies get along just fine.
In discussing what it’s like to be a character on the board, John Pappas writes, “This provides for a broader decision space, more cooperative play, additional planning and an increased element of tenseness compared to Castle Panic. It also makes it more than just a clone or re-theme. It makes it a deeper and better game.”
When it comes to the Event cards in the game, John says, “This element of drawing event cards pleases me. It pleases me greatly. There is more of a thematic tension created when you don’t know what event is going to be pulled from the deck rather than just pulling the prescribed amount of beasties from a sack.”
John sums it up by saying, ”This is another good addition to the Fireside Games line-up which will see plenty of play at my table.” He does a great job highlighting the differences between Castle Panic and Dead Panic, so we highly recommend jumping over to their site to read the full review.
