The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim The Adventure Game

“Before the Dragonborn came to Skyrim … You are surviving members of the Blades, a legendary group who long protected the Empire of Tamriel! Abandoned by the empire, you must work together to thwart a plot which threatens the whole of Skyrim.”

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim The Adventure Game is a co-operative or solo adventure board game currently seeking funding on Gamefound and published by Modiphius Entertainment. The game supports 1-4 players, aged 14+, and plays in about 90-180 minutes per chapter. It’s based on the hugely successful digital game which has been released on every major video game platform since its initial release.

Players will draw Event cards, and explore caves, mines, tombs, ruins, or Dwemer Cities. Future gameplay can be changed by attempting chains of Quest cards to claim rewards. Enemies are defeated for experience and treasure, and characters can be levelled up to learn new, unique skills. Throughout the game players can go on side quests, gain components, and rewards. Gear can also be upgraded and enchanted in Strongholds.
