The GodfatherWe are not talking about the godfather of all tabletop games, here. We are talking about board games that are based on the actual movie, “The Godfather,” directed by Francis Ford Coppola and starring Marlon Brando.

IDW Games recently announced an agreement with Paramount to release a line of The Godfather tabletop games. The types will include card games, dice, games, and big box strategy games for gamers of all different interests.

“The Godfather is more than a movie, it’s an icon,” says IDW’s Director of Business Development, Jerry Bennington. “We plan to give players as many options as possible when it comes to gaming in this rich environment. From quick dice fun to intense big box strategy this will be a line of games truly worthy of the name The Godfather.”

The first to launch will be a card game, due out this summer. Games will be designed to range in length and complexity and will cover different aspects of The Godfather trilogy timeline.

The Godfather Card Game will be available in August of 2015. Pricing is not available at this time, but you can follow IDW Games on Twitter and Facebook to keep up with the news.
