first chapter of the game, you’ll be that much better equipped for the upcoming Chapter 2.

The Walking Dead Social Game – This Week’s Tip

The-Wakling-Dead-Game-divide-conquer-325.JPGStill having trouble dealing with the walkers in The Walking Dead Social Game, even after last week’s tip? Put this into your arsenal. Whenever you see multiple walkers close together and you can’t avoid them, try a divide-and-conquer strategy. Get seen, run, hide, kill.
