BioShock Infinite: The Siege of Columbia Board Game


There is no doubt we here at The Married Gamers love video games. There’s also no doubt whatsoever that the vast majority of video gamers are absolutely loving on BioShock Infinite right now. The masterful storytelling from Irrational Games combined with gorgeous graphics and tight gameplay are keeping gamers glued to their televisions and monitors, consuming every morsel the game has to offer.

Thankfully, the tour of the sky city of Columbia doesn’t end with the completion of Infinite. Plaid Hat Games, publishers of the popular board games Summoner Wars and Mice and Mystics, has secured the rights to use the BioShock Infinite universe in board game form and have crafted a gorgeous looking game in BioShock Infinite: The Siege of Columbia:

Set during the same series of events as the video game, players take on the role of the Founders and Vox Populi factions, desperately seeking to seize control of Columbia. Gain points from staking your claim to the city’s territories and accomlishing other goals, all the while fighting your opponents and Booker while trying to influence Elizabeth and commanding an army of detailed miniatures as well as the Songbird and Airship!

In BioShock Infinite: The Siege of Columbia, each player uses their unique deck of cards to influence world events, build their army, fight off Booker, zoom around the city on the Sky-Line, and claw their way to ultimate control of Columbia.

Last Wednesday, Plaid Hat Games announced an exciting promotion with The Siege of Columbia. The game is currently in production without a confirmed release date but if you pre-order now, you will save $25 off the list price (Almost a 33% savings) and receive an exclusive alternate promotional card!

I had the opportunity to meet company founder Colby Dauch and hear from him during a panel on digital board games at PAX East 2013. I was able to sit and play Summoner Wars with some of the Plaid Hat Games employees in the TableTop section as well. Between the passion of Plaid Hat Games and the rich, deep IP of the Bioshock Infinite universe, I am very excited for this release. Take advantage of this opportunity today to secure your copy!
