The Witcher board game on Kickstarter

This board game looks to be based on the books rather than the computer game or TV show:

This looks like a good interpretation of the world – although I’m no expert in the setting by any means. The miniatures themselves look good and are detailed along with their own bases.

They are certainly an upgrade on the board game models of even a few years ago! At the time of writing this project already has over 20,000 backers. Check out the project page if you’re interested in joining them.

    I’ve thrown my hat in the ring for this one! The monster figures look great but my budget only extends to the basic game.

      Yes, I noticed that I kept getting excited about some of the monsters only to realise they were either add-ons or Kickstarter exclusives. I wonder what the retail edition will be like.

    I was tempted by this. I like Witcher universe and the aesthetic shown with the sculpts bit I would be in it just for the minis… and that is a bit more money than I can spend on those minis right now.

      I know what you mean… it can be tempting to get a game for the minis but when you play it 0-1 times after that it doesn’t feel like a good use of money.

        This is where I’m at. Would love to get it, but would I play it enough to get my money’s worth. Hmmmmmm…

        In fairness to the games I haven’t played as much as I thought, the past 15 months haven’t exactly been prime board gaming time

        Haha yeah. Plus all of the other campaign games I own, and haven’t finished.
