The Witcher Adventure Game Now Available

Runtime: 1:40    Author: CD PROJEKT RED    Category: Trailers

The Witcher Adventure Game, a board game based on CD Projekt Red's The Witcher RPG series, is now available in PC, tablet, and tabletop versions.

In the Witcher Adventure Game, you play as one of four characters from videogame series: Geralt of Rivia, Triss Merigold, Yarpen Zigrin, or Dandelion. Each character has their own strengths, weaknesses, and means of achieving their objectives.

The game is a collaboration between CD Projekt Red, developers of the acclaimed Witcher videogames, and Fantasy Flight Games, a tabletop developer responsible for the likes of The Hobbit Boardgame and Android: Netrunner.

The Witcher Adventure Game is available in both digital and physical versions. The PC version can be bought from Steam and GOG.com for US$9.99 (though at the time of writing, both outlets have the game on sale), while Android tablet and iPad versions can be purchased from the Google Play Store and iTunes App Store, respectively, for NZ$7.49.

The physical version can be ordered directly from Fantasy Flight Games, though doing so will cost you around US$120 ($60 for the game, and $60 for shipping). It should also be available at hobby stores around New Zealand before too long.

Might have to give this a buy to get my head into the Witcher world before Witcher 3 comes out, as I know little of the lore, the land or characters. (never played 1 and 2)

I picked it up yesterday after seeing this news.

There's a pretty steep learning curve if you've never played a modern board game, but after a couple of games I got my head around the way things work and totally crushed the AI. A lot of it is down to luck on your dice rolls, but you can modify your rolls by using talents and skills so nothing is insurmountable (as Geralt at least).

The AI is pretty average and it was quite amusing watching the AI players getting repeatedly owned by a Striga because their preset AI wasn't smart enough to realise that staying in that zone was a really bad idea. My next game will be online vs other people so I can see how others play it and learn (probably the hard way) some things.

Provided you read all the descriptions and info on the cards etc. you'll learn a little lore while playing it, but you'd get far more insight into the world by reading the books or playing the other games.

All in all it's quite fun and well made, there's just a lot of chance and luck involved at times.
