|Not my work, but a cool zombie apocalypse train!|
On a gaming note, my sister introduced me to the board game Ticket to Ride. I know it's been around for years, but I hadn't tried it. Trains just are not a huge draw for me. I played Empire Builder way back in the day and couldn't get into it. Ticket to Ride is a much more social or beer and pretzels game, and it has been a go-to for the wife and I for the past month or so.

No zombies, but there is some sort of expansion with a large monster (Godzilla) and space alien. Not sure what that is about, but the game has solid mechanics and I could see it adapted to many milieus. Who knows, maybe there will be a Walking Dead version... (hmm, they did have rail lines to Terminus...)
|Map expansion maybe?|
It is a fun strategy board game, and there are plenty of expansions and options to keep it fresh. We have the basic game, set in the USA as well as the Ticket to Ride:Europe set. It gives us a geography lesson when we play as well!
I have waited to post again until I felt I could commit to a few posts and get back into regular posting. Once I get back to the apocalypse, we will see what happened to Dawn after the gang attack!
