Beyond Raxxon and the Bandit Hideout there’s one new, simple “location” card added to the game.  Players don’t actually send survivors there, unless they’re getting buried. Some of you may remember some secret objectives that cared about how many survivors had died. Now you have a way to keep track of who has died this game without looking suspicious. You’ve got a memorial.

Graveyard

Of course, having a pile of dead bodies outside the colony can’t have any consequences, could it?

So if you want to keep your survivors alive, there are a host of new tools to prevent them from heading to the graveyard.

There’s Kevin Jackson, with his ever-present sniper rifle.

Kevn Jackson, Sniper

There’s a new weapon for Sparky to hold between his teeth.

Katana

If slicing zombies cleanly isn’t your style, you can always go back to this zombie-movie favorite. One of the cool things is that it’s a tool, not a weapon, so it’s found in the grocery store.

Chainsaw

Medicine is still around, but sometimes AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION IS WORTH A POUND OF CURE!

Yelling the Pain Away

Okay, maybe the noise created by those items is a bad idea.  It can pay to be stealthy, whether you learn it from a book…

Art of Being Neither Seen Nor Heard

..or from years of training at being light of foot.

Chloe Larousse, Dancer

As before in Dead of Winter, your worst enemies are often the humans in your midst.

Shiv

Sure, you could use it on a Zombie, but where’s the fun in that?

I like the many multiple ways of helping the traitor with noise tokens...my friends already love me when i totally blindside them. This makes it much easier!!!

The top row of circles on the Graveyard isn't in-line with the other rows. Hope thats not a proofed final version :/

I can't remember - when you use a card like Shiv - do you need to roll for exposure? I am thinking not - as it is not actually an Attack Action? I am so rusty with the DoW rules...
