We have discussed board game adaptations of video games several times on the blog in the past- including board game versions of Contra and Stardew Valley to name a few- and the latest gaming series to warrant a board game equivalent is Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege.
The game- called 6: Siege- The Board Game– will be a “tactical 1-on-1 shooter” based on Ubisoft’s FPS series and as is receiving a Kickstarter which will be opening soon. The creators behind the project are Mythic Games– a well-known board game publisher who have worked on games such as Solomon Kane: Puritan Pledge and Super Fantasy Brawl: Force of Nature. Mythic Games go into detail as to how their partnership with Ubisoft came about- as well as the development of the board game and why they made the decision to publish the game via Kickstarter- on their website here. Check out more info on 6: Siege- The Board Game below and to be notified of the launch of the game, head over to the Kickstarter page here.
