Fireside Games - Dead Panic Interview

Justin DeWitt is possibly one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet in board gaming.  His company has grown at a very fast, but manageable rate, and Castle Panic, a tower defense board game, was so well received it won a spot on the Games Magazine top 100 traditional board games of 2011.


Now, Justin brings us Dead Panic!  Based on some fundamental mechanics of Castle Panic, but completely NOT a re-skin, Dead Panic puts YOU in the game as a character who just "made it" to a cabin in the woods, escaping the zombie horde.  However, they are onto you, and it's up to you and up to 5 other survivors, to find three missing radio pieces, call for help, and get the heck out of dodge.  Meanwhile, of course, there's brain hungry undead creeping (or sometimes sprinting) towards the cabin doors, ready to eat you alive!


We caught up with Justin at Wonko's Toys and Games in Austin Texas for a chance to play Dead Panic at their release party, and, to chat a bit about the game, their company and what's next!  Check out our interview with Justin and then definitely check out Dead Panic! It's a killer good time!
