Infinite Excitement

Booker Dewitt is in debt. To people that you don’t want to owe money to. Next thing he knows he is given a box and a message “Bring us the girl, repay the debt”. The year is 1912 and Booker is taken out on a rowboat to the middle of the ocean. Dropped off at the lighthouse he finds an elevator and takes it…Where it leads is Columbia: A city in the sky, a Utopian society floating above the earth. He soon finds the girl he is suppose to bring out of Columbia, Elizabeth who has strange and mysterious powers yet has lived in a tower her whole life. Catch is that she is protecting by the “Songbird” a giant, mechanical, winged beast intent on keeping Elizabeth in Columbia and away from Booker. Not only that but the people of Columbia are split in a war against “Outsiders” to the city.

Who is Elizabeth? Who does Booker owe? Why do they want her? Why do the people of Columbia hate her?

What I love the most are when my two favourite types of gaming collide. Yep, I’m talking video game themed board games. Somehow they are just that little bit more exciting to me.  They could be created specifically with a video game in mind, or be an awesome reboot of an already existing game. Just seeing beloved gaming characters come alive in a board game is enough to fall in love with them all over again.
