Pull up a chair with this new ‘Witcher’-themed board game


If you’ve grown tired with The Witcher in the virtual realm–which if you have, there’s something seriously wrong with you–you’ll be pleased to know that Fantasy Flight Games is currently developing The Witcher Adventure Game, a four-player role-based board game where you work with (or against) your friends to complete quests and secure fame and treasure.

You can play as either Geralt of Rivia, Triss, Dandelion, or Yarpen as you venture through familiar swamps, fields, and forests:

The Witcher Adventure Game encourages a range of playstyles–different characters will tend to use alternate means to achieve their goals. You can bring enemies around to your point of view with a sword as Geralt–or bribe them with gold and threaten to call on powerful friends as Dandelion. If a situation calls for strength in numbers, Yarpen has his own fellowship of dwarves to command, and Triss can rely on her expert skill with magic to save the day. […] Each character has unique abilities and their own deck of Development Cards. As a result, each time you play you can discover something new by trying out varied characters and experimenting with different builds.”

Though there’s no official release date yet, this is definitely an interesting addition to the franchise. I don’t know about you, but CD Projekt Red is quickly becoming one of my favorite developers, especially with their attention to detail and love for what they’re doing.
