The Witcher gets a board game spin-off

By Fantasy Flight Games.

Popular fantasy series The Witcher is getting its very own board game later this year.

Entitled simply The Witcher Adventure Game, this latest project is a collaboration between CD Projekt Red and board game developer Fantasy Flight Games, who previously worked on board game spin-offs of such video game properties as Gears of War and Civilization.

Headed by veteran board game designer Ignacy Trzewiczek, The Witcher Adventure Game allows players to take the roles of four characters: series' lead and monster slayer Geralt of Rivia, a bard called Dandelion, a sorceress named Triss Merigold, and dwarven warrior Yarpen Zigrin. Throughout the game players will hunt monsters, earn gold, go on missions, and navigate a web of shaky alliances.

The story and the setting of The Witcher really lends itself to an adventure board game. We're looking forward to players being able to craft their own narrative during the course of the game," said Fantasy Flight Games' senior VP of communication and digital business Steve Horvath.
