Really looking forward to this game. After reading the rules I am now left with pangs of impatience.

I have recently watched 'Zombieland' and 'Dawn of the Dead (remake)' to take the edge off the wait. Also read Brian Keene's 'The Rising' and Max Brooks efforts.

What other recommendations to get us through the wait?

The Walking Dead, you can choose between the series or the comics they're based on.

Night of the Living Dead (1990 version)
Land of the Dead
Resident Evil (perhaps even the first two sequels)
28 Days Later & 28 Weeks Later
Shaun of the Dead
Quarantine
Dead Alive (known as Braindead on your side of the pond)
Undead
Diary of the Dead (this one is particularly good to watch with the ladies)
The Walking Dead (all seasons)

As for other games, there's plenty of Zombie Filler.

I don't know why, but a lot of people seem to pass on Land of the Dead but I *really* liked it (and would love a boardgame in that setting). The Walking Dead if\s too slow and boring for me (I much preferred the comics). Shaun of the Dead is hilarious (and the two main actors were in Land of the Dead as 'zombies' inside the city) and 28 Days Later has almost become a defacto movie even though they're 'infected' not 'zombies' (it also makes me wish Left4Dead 3 is set in England).

If we're bringing books into the mix, I really liked World War Z. A fun read IMHO.

So true. +1!
Not to mention the audio-book, which is done very well as well!

All the best!

No one does violent, quirky horror like the Italians! Watch Cemetery Man. It is in English, but with an Italian director and international cast. Like Good, Bad, and the Ugly.

AMAZING!!!!

Do you know, if the available downloads on the official website cover everything? Or are these only excerpts? If the downloads provided there cover the complete show, then there would be no need to go via iTunes or stuff ...
It's the same.

All the best!

The Walking Dead videogame RPG download for Xbox Live or Playstation3 (perhaps also PC?) is a nice interactive episodic experience. Choices made in episode one will affect the outcome in later episodes ala Mass Effect.
It uses a whole new set of characters than the comic, but still has that Walking Dead feel.
Costs about $5 per game episode. each ep plays through in 1-2 hours.

The Walking Dead game iss available on Steam for PC (a little more than $5 right now) and it's got some really awesome moments. More of an interactive movie than a game, but very cool. It's the story from the point of view of different/new characters/settings.

yes yes, true true. INTERACTIVE MOVIE.
Calling it a "game" is misleading.

But well worth the time and money while waiting for Walking Dead season 3 and the next Walking Dead trade paperback.

ALSO worth the time and money,
if you have not read the Walking Dead comic series this is the perfect tome for one-stop-shopping/reading.

The Walking Dead COMPENDIUM

http://amzn.com/1607060760?tag=article-boardgamegeek-20
collects the first 48 issues in one large volume.
not a bad deal for ~$37 bucks!!!
and when you are done you can trade it back to amazon for ~$9 bucks!

best darn deal on the interweb.

The Walking Dead, definitely. I personally much prefer the Robert Kirkman comics to the AMC show.

Dead Snow, if you're the type that likes foreign films about nazi zombies killing Norwegian med students. It gave me a good laugh one night while the wife was out of town, and it's streaming on Netflix.
