Not content with publishing Skyrim on basically modern video game format, Bethesda wants to dominate your dining room table, too. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - The Adventure Game is a fully fledged tabletop RPG that brings the snowy region of Tamriel into the realm of board games.
The game is being created by Modiphius Entertainment in collaboration with Bethesda Game Studios. As you might expect, it looks like an incredibly expansive, deep experience for one to four players, aiming to emulate the RPG with cards and miniatures representing the world and its inhabitants. In the trailer, you can see how in-depth this is, with hundreds of cards acting as weapons, armour, enemies, events, missions, and more.
Though not available for direct purchase yet, you can back the project on Gamefound, where you'll find more detail on the game's content and structure, as well as stretch goals and rewards. It looks as though the board game will ship out to backers in August 2022, so there's still a ways to go yet.
What do you think of Skyrim's tabletop adaptation? Are you keen to revisit the land of the Nords in board game form? Roll the dice in the comments section below.

It’s actually pretty cool. Quite a good concept. I’ve never bought one of these things though, they’re usually pretty expensive.
Very cool. Would love an official 5e module as well which would be great. Roll for initiative!
As someone who's been getting into boardgames like Bloodborne, Fallout, Horrified, etc., I'm definitely will be keeping an eye out for this one.
They seriously want to release this game on EVERY platform.
I was initially looking forward to this, but the ruleset, components and the way the campaign is being run hasn't impressed me. I think I'll skip it. The upcoming Wolfenstein board game, which you can still late pledge for, looks absolutely fantastic however.
Go straight to Cidhna mine, do not pass Whiterun, do not collect 200 septims.
If I had friends I might buy this.
I'll wait until the inevitable re-re-issue in the future.
@Splat If you'll be my bodyguard
I can be your long lost pal
But... does it have bugs?
Love the look of this,would make a change from 'Guess Who?' Which I last played about 30 years ago.
This looks cool, but I have to cringe at the use of an epic voiceover guy for the trailer. It just seems really cheesy, and like it's taking itself far too seriously, right?
Edit: @whizzkidd: hopefully not termites
@Splat It's actually mainly meant for solo play.
That would be amazing, too bad I don't have any friends
@whizzkidd Sold separately (it's a dlc, "for the FULL bethesda experience, 1000 bed bugs NEVER SEEN BEFORE for the price of 25$ al trm nd cndtin ply (read it fast))
And then we wait for the dlc bonus packs
As long as I can yeet Lydia accidentally off the board to her death, with a misplaced shout, while she is carrying all my dragonbone - I'm in.
