May 19, 2021 – Publisher Chip Theory games dropped an Elder Scrolls Board Game Teaser Image on Twitter today announcing something related to the franchise was coming and that more details wouldn’t be available for at least 8 months. Even though details were light, the internet reaction has still been the overwhelmingly positive “take my money.”

If you head on over to the link they share, you can sign up for their newsletter to get more information and you are also able to dream and speculate wildly about what the board game experience may be like.

Chip Theory Games is the publisher behind Too Many Bones (2017), the cooperative deck building and dice rolling game, and Cloudspire (2019), the cooperative tile placement and dice rolling, to name a few.

Elder Scrolls Board Game Details

This is a game about rich stories and characters from a publisher that makes intense team games. If we had to speculate, we would say that this is going to be a cooperative dice rolling dungeon crawler.

Elder Scrolls is one of the most popular strategy video game franchises of all time so it makes sense that the community is salivating at the idea of a board game crossover. The franchise originally came out in March of 1994 and has been going strong ever since. The series focuses on free-form gameplay in a detailed open world. The setting combines pre-medieval real-world elements, such as a powerful Roman-like Empire, with high fantasy medieval tropes, including limited technology, widespread magic use, and the existence of many mythological creatures.
