 DIGITAL BOARD GAME FEATURE

E3 2018 - The 3 games from the show we'd love to see turned into digital board games

E3 is in full swing over in America, and while there haven't been many digital board games announced, that's not going to stop us having a look at what is coming out, and trying to squish it into a digital board game shape.

With that in mind then, here are three games from E3 that we reckon would be brilliant as digital board games. And why we think they'd work so well.

You might agree, you might disagree, and both of those opinions are fine. If you've got your own suggestions, feel free to chuck them in the comments section at the bottom of the article.

#1 The Last of us 2



Gloomy, post-apocalyptic, and yet filled with the sort of humanity that AAA games tend to shy away from, The Last of US Part 2 is prime fodder to get some digital board game adaptations.

The main reason is the strength of the themes running through the game. You only need to take a quick look at the trailer to know that this is a game that knows what it is. That makes it much easier to transfer to a board game.

Imagine something along the lines of Talisman, with players engaging in both cooperative and competitive missions to try and survive. There'd be hard choices to make, relationships to build, and a whole lot of dice-based fighting to do.

#2 Anthem



Sure, it might look a lot like Destiny, but I think a board game set in the Destiny universe would work great as well. Sci-fi games are often some of the best around, and an Anthem adaptation could be too.

There'd be role-playing, obviously, but it feels to me the sort of thing that'd work brilliantly as a card game. Build up a deck of equipment, and take on challenges the alien world you're exploring throws at you.

Throw in multiplayer, and the possibility that card packs could expand the gameplay, and I think you've got a pretty interesting proposition.

#3 Ghost of Tsushima



There aren't enough digital board games featuring samurai. I know it, you know it, and hopefully the people behind Ghost of Tsushima know it as well.

Think about it, you could translate sword fights into dice rolls, with the different sides of the die representing different moves. Build up a pool of dice, with different actions and less failures as you get better.

It could be something really simple, and so long as the balancing was right, and the theme was spot on, it could offer up hours of fun.
