I am crazy about everything Witcher related so I was initially super excited when I heard about a boardgame being made based upon the Witcher books. I got onto the bandwagon early with the digital version of the game released for tablets and had been playing it a bit but it didn't really satisfy me (never mind the online part playing with gamers suffering from acute ADD!).

Once the game was finally released as a proper boardgame my interest had cooled off a bit, I was no longer sure if it would be a good investment of money in relation to fun/depth/value. Following the release I was on the fence for a couple of days trying to read up on the game and what other people thought – the opinions were many and divided but generally the game seemed to fall into a average scores on review sites. It was really more a surplus of cash than anything that prompted me to buy this game in the end.

A dozen play throughs later I compiled a review mixed with my thoughts on how the game could have been. Check it out on my blog:

Nice review, thanks. I agree with your comments and I think you are spot on with your 6/10 rating.

I think the game's best feature is that the four playable characters each requires a different play style. Combined with the somewhat random nature of the quests, this offers a degree of re-playability. My wife and I occasionally enjoy this as a 2-player game. BTW, we are very much looking forward to the release of the Witcher 3 video game.

Me too, been eagerly waiting for Witcher 3 since it was announced! Love the first two games and have played them several times :-D
