When the owners of rights to Thorgal reached us and asked if Portal Games is interested in creating a board game, we debated it for some time. 2, maybe 3 seconds. Then, we wrote ‘Heck, yeah.” and clicked send button.
And then the question – how to even start? You have rights to your beloved IP, and you can do absolutely everything. Should you do a fast-to-play deck builder like Hero Realms? Should you go for a dungeon crawler like Bloodborne: the board game? A story-driven game in the style of Sleeping Gods? A strategy game like War of the Ring?
There is an infinite number of possibilities. All tempting, all whispering to my ears: “Choose me, choose me.”
