BioShock Infinite is, like, a big deal. The third entry in the critically acclaimed first-person shooter style video game series, BioShock Infinite builds on its predecessors' immersive, narrative gameplay and philosophical, character-driven stories while breaking new ground with a new setting, new characters, and all kinds of new game mechanics. BioShock Infinite sets the gold standard for storytelling and action in video games.

Plaid Hat Games is thrilled and priveleged to be bringing you not just the board game version of a popular video game, but a chance to help players explore the imaginative and immersive world of BioShock Infinite in an epic new way. Thus, we present Bioshock Infinite: The Siege of Columbia.

A few months ago, when the collector's edition of BioShock Infinite was announced on Irrational Games' Web site, the beans were spilled that Plaid Hat Games was working on the board game, putting players in the shoes of the Vox Populi and Founders leaders, battling for control of Columbia while Booker and Elizabeth create chaos around the city. Finally, with the video game in fans' hands, details will start to emerge here on our site about the board game.

Here's the most important detail: You can pre-order BioShock Infinite: The Siege of Columbia today at PlaidHatGames.com and get $25 off the retail price. Those who order from PlaidHatGames.com also get a free promo card.
