    The Witcher Adventure Game takes players on a journey across the world of The Witcher as they assume the roles of four distinct characters known from the books and video games: Geralt of Rivia, monster slayer; Triss Merigold,
    cunning sorceress; Yarpen Zigrin, dwarven warrior; and Dandelion, rogu- ish bard. Each character has unique skills and multiple ways of overcoming obstacles—the choice is yours: do you fight your way to victory, call on your charm, or try your hand at diplomacy?

Players may assist one another from time to time, but make no mistake—there can be only one winner!

    An entertaining digital boardgame in the Witcher world. The computer is a too easy opponent, though. [June 2015]

    A good value for a well designed and developed digital tabletop game set in one of gaming's most intriguing universes.

    After playing The Witcher Adventure Game’s digital version, this is the first time in a long time that not only am I contemplating running out and grabbing a physical copy, but I find myself wanting to play more and more with my friends. The offline mode taught me, a couple online games had me hooked, and now I seriously need a physical copy for my living room.

    The Witcher Adventure Game is a faithful recreation of the board game and it's perfect as virtual tabletop game.

    A decent experience, but it's weighed down by its random nature and the lack of good early game options for less combat-heavy characters.

    If you are a fan of the franchise, by all means, consider adding this game to your collection, as it will let you slide into the shoes of some of your favorite characters. For all others, look elsewhere for your adventuring and competitive needs.

    Herein lies the main problem – Adventure Game has almost no way for players to interact with each other. You might as well gather four people in the room and roll dice for an hour and a half to find out who will get more sixes. [Jan 2015, p.76]

    There is no game here it's all RNG. You only get to pick the direction of movement and placement of a couple of cards when another card tellsThere is no game here it's all RNG. You only get to pick the direction of movement and placement of a couple of cards when another card tells you to place them through RNG!!! lol. Worst waste of time I ever spent. Besides being RNG it also cheats in favor of the AI because it has no difficulty levels. While you do get some cards to change the outcome of the RNG the RNG is so set against you that you don't get very many chances to change to die in your favor. So, you basically lose the die roll before it ever begins.

    Now, if you like wasting time then you might like this game. It has no real since of adventure though since basically the quest cards you should pick should be the ones you can do the fastest. The one who finishes 3 quests the fastest most always wins anyways. So, that the game is over the the one with the most quest points wins hardly ever take effect over the one who finishes 3 quests first.

    Nobody is playing multiplayer and the game is basically dead on Steam. It can't even mount the 300 players per hour needed to get on Steamstats.
