Paizo and Gale Force Nine Announce Boardgame Partnership

Friday, January 28, 2022

Paizo and Gale Force Nine have agreed on a multi-game partnership to publish original Pathfinder and Starfinder board games.

Gale Force Nine (GF9), known for producing games such as “Firefly: The Game” and “Dune: A Game of Conquest and Diplomacy”, have teamed up with Paizo to publish original board and card games drawing from the worlds of Pathfinder and Starfinder. The multi-year partnership will see GF9 exploring the rich settings of Golarion, the Pact Worlds, and beyond to bring the heroes, villains, locations, and monsters from the roleplaying systems into several new boardgames.

Starting in Q2 2022, Gale Force Nine will release two board games and one card game over the first year of the partnership, with more following over the course of the relationship. The first three titles are:

  • Pathfinder: Level 20 (Q2 2022)
  • Starfinder: Pirates of Skydock (Q3 2022)
  • Pathfinder: Tall Tales (Q4 2022)

“The worlds of Pathfinder and Starfinder are fun, diverse, and full of character,” says John-Paul Brisigotti, CEO of GF9. “We are excited to explore them further and offer fans of these games an opportunity to interact with the worlds in a new way.”

We look forward to partnering with Gale Force Nine in bringing the Pathfinder and Starfinder worlds to life as board games,” says Paizo President, Jeff Alvarez.

Pathfinder: Level 20

The first game of this partnership, releasing in Q2 2022, is Pathfinder: Level 20, a game where players take on the role of kobolds in their warren, scampering away from a 19th-level fighter who only needs five XP to hit level 20.

Will you make the heroes scamper away in embarrassment, thus being crowned the kobold champion? Or will you be the last survivor among your friends, a victory in its own right!

Pathfinder: Level 20 is a game for 2–6 players and will be available in April with an MSRP of $30. Visit www.gf9games.com/pathfinder for more information.

Methinks someone has heard the story of "Tucker's Kobolds"...

Whoa! I signed up to play Pathfinder: Level 20 at GenCon. (It was with rats rather than kobolds at the time.) I thought it was just a cool homebrew idea that somebody was running a lot of sessions of, and was sad when it got canceled. I'm really excited to actually get to play the game!

Looks like you can read the rules for the game on their site, too.
