Bad Crow Games have taken to Kickstarter to launch a board game adaptation of the popular real-time strategy video game Company of Heroes.

Company of Heroes is a series of WWII RTS games, originally developed by Relic Entertainment and published by THQ, and later by Sega. In them you take control of one of the nations engaged in the European theatre of conflicts in WWII, aiming to build your war-time economies, expand your armies, before going on to claim victory on the battlefield.

This board game carries over a lot of the elements that most characterise the video games, including elements such as fog of war, manoeuvring forces to capture resource points, and the ability to upgrade and purchase your units. In fact, the dice included in the game are primarily for this purpose, letting your mark out what upgrades have been taken for a given unit.

The game comes with plenty of different options to play the game, such as variant map lay outs and a variety of scenarios to play through. Most interesting though is that the game can either be played as a turn-based game or it can be played in real-time. The idea of bringing real-time strategy to the tabletop is an interesting one and definitely captures the side of me that spent so many hours playing RTS video games.

The Kickstarter has already blasted past its initial funding goal, unlocking plenty of stretch goals. This looks to be a game with the sort of in-depth strategy to appeal to tabletop gamers, as well as fans of the original video games.

You can find out more over on the Kickstarter page.
