Description Edit | History

Game description from the publisher:

"Crossroads" is a new series from Plaid Hat Games that tests a group of survivors' ability to work together and stay alive while facing crises and challenges from both outside and inside.

Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game, the first game in this series, puts 2-5 players in a small, weakened colony of survivors in a world where most of humanity is either dead or diseased, flesh-craving monsters. Each player leads a faction of survivors with dozens of different characters in the game.

Dead of Winter is a meta-cooperative psychological survival game. This means players are working together toward one common victory condition — but for each individual player to achieve victory, he must also complete his personal secret objective. This secret objective could relate to a psychological tick that's fairly harmless to most others in the colony, a dangerous obsession that could put the main objective at risk, a desire for sabotage of the main mission, or (worst of all) vengeance against the colony! Certain games could end with all players winning, some winning and some losing, or all players losing. Work toward the group's goal, but don't get walked all over by a loudmouth who's looking out only for his own interests!

Dead of Winter is an experience that can be accomplished only through the medium of tabletop games. It's a story-centric game about surviving through a harsh winter in an apocalyptic world. The survivors are all dealing with their own psychological imperatives, but must still find a way to work together to fight off outside threats, resolve crises, find food and supplies, and keep the colony's morale up.

Dead of Winter has players making frequent, difficult, heavily- thematic, wildly-varying decisions that often have them deciding between what is best for the colony and what is best for themselves.

4 Dead of Winter Custom Foamcore Insert Mk. I
A custom foamcore insert for Dead of Winter, allowing for quick set up with individual storage for all tokens, dice, standees and all 14 decks of cards. [b]These plans were drawn up after I made this, measuring everything after it had been created so I cannot guarantee they are right. The manual and game board do not fit in with the lid flush. Please see my forum thread (link below) for photos and an explanation.[/b] Photos can be found on my forum thread here: [thread=1308237][/thread] • All foamcore is 5mm • This insert does not fit sleeved cards (the Mk II will!) • Measurements are as exact as I could get them (I drew up the plans after making the insert – go figure). Check that all pieces fit before gluing and if you need to, gently shave off a millimetre at a time until it is...
