The Swedish video game publisher, Paradox is working on tabletop versions of four of its biggest titles: Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis, Hearts of Iron and Cities: Skyline.
The first game to be made is the Crusader Kings board game, which is designed and published with Free League Publishing.
The medieval-set game sees players compete for military, religious and political power while keeping their personal dynasty strong.
The game is launching through the Kickstarter platform, where – currently live – it has secured £111,181 in funding, smashing the target of £42,405 with 29 days still to go.
‘Crusader Kings – The Board Game captures the essence of the Crusader Kings experience, in a physical tabletop format,’ read a statement from the firm.
‘This is a strategy game at heart, but with a special focus on characters, intrigue and juicy medieval drama. It’s a big, beautiful game centred on a map of medieval Europe, using cards for actions, characters and events and dozens of well-crafted plastic miniatures to represent knights, armies, castles and more.’
