In just two weeks the halls of the Dallas convention center will be overrun with the dead and survivors fending them off alike. Now don’t worry – there’s no oncoming apocalypse, at least not yet anyway, rather it’s Walker Stalker Con: a sci-fi horror convention celebrating the hit TV/comic series The Walking Dead. If there’s one thing that’s prominent in tabletop it’s zombies, and you can find them just about anywhere.
With games like Zombicide, Last Night on Earth, and Outbreak: Undead, the zombie theme is running strong. I get that some will argue that the zombie deal has been overrun (See what I did there?), but I am a huge fan of the genre. In fact, one of my all-time favorite games is Last Night on Earth. There are even games in the community solely based on The Walking Dead from publishers like Cryptozoic and even Z-Man Games.
Guests from the show will be in attendance, and attendees will have the opportunity to meet, greet, and take photos with some of the hottest members of The Walking Dead cast. These guests include:
- Steven Yeun – Glen, Walking Dead
- Emily Kinney – Beth, Walking Dead
- David Morrissey – The Governor, Walking Dead
- Chandler Riggs – Carl, Walking Dead
- And many more!
There will also be tons of events and vendors to check out. In fact, there will even be some great makeup artists on-site showing off their work from the show! It’ll be a great chance to check out amazing cosplays, learn more about the show, have the opportunity to show off some survival board games, and much more. I’ll be heading down to the convention, and I hope to see you there! For more information on the con, or to purchase tickets, check out the Walker Stalker Con Dallas website.
