Electricity becomes optional for fans of CD Projekt RED's The Witcher as a board game version of the video game series is in the works from Fantasy Flight Games.

Set to release this year, The Witcher Adventure Game takes players on a journey across the world of The Witcher as they assume the roles of four characters from the books and computer games: the monster slayer Geralt of Rivia, roguish bard Dandelion, sorceress Triss Merigold, and dwarven warrior Yarpen Zigrin.  The table-top game will have a variety of quests where players will hunt monsters, earn gold on dangerous missions, and interact with the characters they meet in a web of alliances and treachery.

"We are very pleased to partner with CD Projekt RED on The Witcher Adventure Game," said Steve Horvath, Senior VP of Communication and Digital Business for Fantasy Flight Games.  "The story and the setting of The Witcher really lends itself to an adventure board game. We're looking forward to players being able to craft their own narrative during the course of the game."

In development simultaneously as the board game is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the next entry in the The Witcher video game series.  The upcoming video game is also expected to release this year.
