Dead of Winter is a meta-cooperative strategy board game about surviving through a harsh winter in an apocalyptic world. Players are faction leaders who must work together toward one
common victory condition, but each individual player must also complete their own secret objective. Often this secret objective requires that a player help complete the colony objective.
The game is played over a set of rounds, during which the players will execute actions like scavenging locations for supplies, attacking zombies and other survivors,
moving, using medicine, building barricades or helping to complete the existing crisis.
There are 20 possible scenarios to play and each scenario has a different starting morale level, zombie presence, game length and a unique colony victory objective.
Because of the secret objectives, players often have to decidde between what is best for the colony and what is best for themselves. Only players who have completed their secret objective
when the game ends win the game.
