Paradox had a large room for board game fans - here's a shaky film from walking in the room and peeking what people are doing. Best of all, the company announced their popular computer games are heading to the world of board games as well and most of those games were available for play testing as well. Of course, the games were early alpha/beta versions and far from final products, but they did indeed look fine and provided lots of good gameplay and feedback to the developers. Games shown were Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis and Cities: Skylines in playable form. Hearts of Iron was demoed with the game board.
Please consider subscribing, that would be very nice of you:

Paradox Interactive, a global developer and publisher of games that get a little dicey, today announced that it is working with industry-leading publishers to bring its best-selling and award-winning games to the tabletop with a series of Paradox board games. This morning at PDXCON, the publisher’s annual fan convention, it was announced that Paradox is collaborating with a series of proven board game designers to bring its own game worlds to life outside of digital platforms. Beginning with Paradox’s iconic series Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis, Hearts of Iron, and Cities: Skylines, the creators at Paradox will capture the strategy and themes of its games in tabletop form, allowing players to tell their own stories in a new way.
The first game to be produced will be the Crusader Kings board game, designed and published in cooperation with Free League Publishing, developers of the award-winning tabletop roleplaying games Mutant Year Zero and Tales from the Loop RPG. Players will compete in Crusader Kings for military, religious, and political power while keeping their personal dynasty strong, using cards and miniatures to experience the iconic medieval intrigue of Paradox’s long-running PC franchise. The Crusader Kings board game is available to back on Kickstarter.

PDXCON 2018, a public convention for Paradox fans worldwide.
“PDXCON is our biggest gathering of the year for our most dedicated fans and veteran players, and it’s only proper that they should be with us when we announce our latest game,” said Johan Andersson, EVP Creative Director at Paradox Development Studio. “Our fans know that titles from PDS need to meet a certain standard for us to add them to our catalog, and that’s why we’re sure this next game will excite even our toughest critics of all, in person at PDXCON – our veteran players.”
“Since joining forces with Paradox last year, our studio has been eager to meet more of their famously dedicated community,” said Lennart Sas, founder of Triumph Studios. “We can’t wait to show them, and our own loyal fans, what we’ve been up to. Whether you’re a Paradox fan or you’re an Age of Wonders veteran – or, in many cases, possibly both – we’re excited for everyone in the community to meet us, and each other. I can’t wait to see you all at PDXCON!”
Paradox Interactive is a leading global publisher of strategy games for PC and console. The company has developed and published a world-renowned catalog stretching back to 1999, with players hailing from all around the world.
