Board games work well on Apple’s iPad, and especially the larger 9.7-inch model. One new board game application set to reach our favorite tablet is The Witcher, which itself is based on the popular series of short stories penned by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.
Creator CD Projekt Red has teamed up with developer Fantasy Flight Games (the folks behind Elder Sign: Omens HD), and promises users the chance to take control of Geralt, Triss Merigold, Yarpen Zigrin, and Dandelion in the application. Characters come with their own Development Cards, and each one has the option of fighting, using charm, or accepting diplomacy; iPad gamers can also play solo or in a co-op mode with a friend.
Concerning the forthcoming app, CD Projekt’s Adam Badowski said:
Fantasy Flight Games has an outstanding connection with board game fans worldwide and is well known for the highest quality of their titles. We’re really excited that we can join the party and expand The Witcher universe in such great company.
Over at the game’s official website, the creator adds: “The Witcher Adventure Game aims to set a new standard for tabletop games of this kind - each of the over 350 premium quality components found in the box has been designed and crafted with meticulous care by some of the industry’s most acclaimed artists.”
The tablet iteration of the board game aims to offer a fun, accessible port for Apple’s iPad. Below, we’ve included a trailer for the game, which provides iDevice owners with a better idea of what they can expect from The Witcher Adventure Game.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Uv1VGfw7U4

CD Projekt notes that the game is “coming soon,” and as such we’re hoping a 2014 release is in the cards. We’ll let you know once The Witcher Adventure Game launches in the App Store.
