The Banner Saga gets a board game

Stoic, the team that brought you the highly acclaimed turn-based strategy game The Banner Saga, plans to follow the success of their initial Kickstarter with a new campaign – only this time their plan is to raise capital and interest for The Banner Saga: Warbands – a board game.

Not much is known about this exciting new project. We know it is a miniatures board game, we know it’s being developed by MegaCon Games (a small, Indiana-based board game company), and we know it’s being published by Versus Evil, a company who prides themselves on bringing AAA quality distribution to independently designed games. Sounds like a perfect match.

A website has been setup to keen fans informed of the game’s development – but for now it offers little more than a news subscription form, a logo and assurance that the game will be Kickstarting soon. Given the awesome quality of The Banner Saga video game, I will certainly be keeping my eyes out for this project.

Since first travelling to Japan at the age of fifteen, most of my life has revolved around trying to learn Japanese, and unravel the mysteries of the country’s culture. Gaming ranks just behind this obsession. I enjoy video games – particularly RPGs and Strategy – but my main interest is in tabletop role playing games and board games. Writing ranks third – luckily I get plenty of opportunities to write about Japan and games, so it all works out.
