In The Witcher Adventure Game, players assume the roles of one of four characters known from the books and video games.  Each of these characters have specific skills and abilities that help players achieve their goals in different ways – Geralt, a monster slayer, Dandelion, a rogue bard, Triss, a cunning sorceress, or Yarpen, a dwarven leader.  Players hunt monsters, solve mysteries and complete quests as they embark on a storytelling experience to complete missions.  Development cards allow players to blend tactics and discover new synergies by creating different builds with these skill cards.

The game is for two to four with a play time of 120 minutes and a suggested age of 16 or older.  No release date has been provided.
