We’ve worked closely with Mantic Games for some time to ensure the Worms experience is wholly encapsulated as a tabletop game, and we’re looking forward to the crowdfunding campaign starting in a few months’ time!”

Ronnie Renton, CEO, Mantic Games, said: “Worms: The Board Game is shaping up to offer all of the addictive, tactical gameplay and laugh-out-loud moments that you’d expect!
