Worlds Collide As ‘The Walking Dead’ Set To Crossover With ‘Magic: The Gathering’

As if 2020 wasn’t bizarre enough, Wizards of the Coast announced that their latest Magic: The Gathering Secret Lair drop will consist of a crossover with The Walking Dead. The team-up, which no one saw coming, will launch on October 4 to coincide with AMC’s “We Are The Walking Dead Weekend,” beginning with The Walking Dead Special Event, followed by the premiere of The Walking Dead: World Beyond and ending with a special episode of Talking Dead at 11/10c, where fans can anticipate an unboxing and preview of the cards.

“Wizards of the Coast is thrilled to collaborate with AMC to bring these iconic characters to the greatest strategy card game,” said Bill Rose, SVP of Magic: The Gathering design and development, Wizards of the Coast. “We can’t wait for fans of both Magic: The Gathering and AMC’s The Walking Dead to discover fun new ways to play when they add this Secret Lair drop to their collection.”

Magic: The Gathering is one of the most seminal works in the history of gaming,” said Clayton Neuman, VP of Games for AMC. “So, we were beyond thrilled to work with Wizards to pair it with one of the most beloved series in the history of television. These cards are a perfect blend of the two universes, and we can’t wait for fans to get their hands on them and discover all the tricks we’ve hidden up our sleeves.”

The cards included in this very special Secret Lair drop will be completely new to Magic: The Gathering, depicting the iconic characters of the long-running and critically acclaimed TV Series. The included cards have never been seen before in Magic: The Gathering and bring unique gameplay and text different from any other printed cards, which will only be legal in Legacy, Vintage, and Commander.

AMC’s The Walking Dead Secret Lair drop preorders will go on sale October 4th for $49.99.
