Brandon Sanderson, author of The Mistborn series, announced on his website on Wednesday that a board game based on Mistborn: The Final Empire is in the works.

In Mistborn: House War players will play the noble houses of the Final Empire. The game looks set to take fans back to the days of Kelsier & Co. However, rather than players assisting the fledgling rebellion they will be working to preserve the status quo, fighting everything “from environmental and social turmoil to political strife and outright rebellion. You’ll even have to stave off Kelsier, Vin, Sazed, and the other heroes of the novels to maintain the delicate balance held in place for the last thousand years.”
Developers even have in mind ways to add expansions to the game after its release. According to Sanderson’s blog, a Kickstarter will be opened soon so fans can help bring a way to interact with a beloved world to life.
What do you think? Excited to be able to see another side of the world of the Final Empire? Or is it just gimmicky? I personally am very much inclined to the former. Let me know what you think!
