Your mother Columbia cries out as foreigners and anarchists threaten her virtue – will you not take up arms and defend her? Will you usher Columbia toward salvation or ruin?
1912. The magnificent floating city of Columbia, intended to be a shining symbol of American exceptionalism, has been disavowed by the very nation that created it. Part world’s fair and part battleship, Columbia has erupted into civil war as two sides vie for control of the most important city on Earth. The nationalistic Founders seek to prove that Columbia is even more American than its motherland, and the anarchistic Vox Populi seek to burn the floating city out of the sky. Caught in the middle of the infighting is disgraced former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, and Elizabeth, a mysterious young woman fated to be Columbia’s salvation or the bringer of its doom.
BioShock Infinite: the Siege of Columbia board game is based on the exciting BioShock Infinite video game. Set during the same series of events as the video game, players take on the role of the Founders and Vox Populi factions, desperately seeking to seize control of Columbia. Players will command mobs of combatants and set them against their opponents, striving to lay claim to the city’s bitterly contested districts. Challenging objectives offer tempting advantages, as each side uses their might, influence and resources to claim victory.
