Paradox Interactive Brings Grand Strategy to the Tabletop with New Board Games
Game Publisher and Developer to Release Analog Adaptations of Four Popular Franchises
STOCKHOLM - May 19, 2018 - Paradox Interactive, a global developer and publisher of games that get a little dicey, today announced that it is working with industry-leading publishers to bring its best-selling and award-winning games to the tabletop with a series of Paradox board games. This morning at PDXCON, the publisher’s annual fan convention, it was announced that Paradox is collaborating with a series of proven board game designers to bring its own game worlds to life outside of digital platforms. Beginning with Paradox’s iconic series Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis, Hearts of Iron, and Cities: Skylines, the creators at Paradox will capture the strategy and themes of its games in tabletop form, allowing players to tell their own stories in a new way.

The first game to be produced will be the Crusader Kings board game, designed and published in cooperation with Free League Publishing, developers of the award-winning tabletop roleplaying games Mutant Year Zero and Tales from the Loop RPG. Players will compete in Crusader Kings for military, religious, and political power while keeping their personal dynasty strong, using cards and miniatures to experience the iconic medieval intrigue of Paradox’s long-running PC franchise. The Crusader Kings board game is available to back on Kickstarter as of this morning, and can be found here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1192053011/1481810177
