Resident Evil 3: The Board Game Gets a Free Demo Alongside Tomorrow’s Kickstarter Launch
Resident Evil 3: The Board Game from Steamforged Games launches on Kickstarter tomorrow. The team is putting out a free demo on Tabletopia for fans to try.
A few weeks ago, the team at Steamforged Games announced their next board game project would be a Resident Evil 3 adaptation. Steamforged specializes in board game versions of popular video games like Dark Souls and Horizon Zero Dawn. And, of course, they’ve already released a Resident Evil 2 adaptation. With the RE3 Kickstarter campaign launching tomorrow, Steamforged is releasing a free demo for players to try out before they back. Give it a look below.

With the rise of things like Tabletopia and Tabletop Simulator, board game demos have become a much more feasible prospect. In the past, the only option was to use a print-and-play version. I’ve put together my fair share of print-and-play games over the years and they can be a pain. Just being able to quickly hop on an online solution means so many more players will actually give the game a try.
Steamforged Games is running their demo through Tabletopia. You’ll soon be able to play solo or with friends on their website. The demo launches alongside the Kickstarter campaign, which, as mentioned above, kicks off tomorrow.
The Resident Evil 3 board game is a cooperative survival horror campaign game that retells the events that took place in Raccoon City in 1999. Players will take on the roles of iconic Resident Evil characters and try to navigate past the undead horrors occupying the board. Plus, there’s the malicious “tension” deck that ups the terror in surprising ways. If you’ve played the RE2 game, you likely know what you’re in for. However, if you haven’t, give the demo a try tomorrow.
Resident Evil 3: The Board Game launches on Kickstarter tomorrow. The demo hits Tabletopia at roughly the same time the Kickstarter begins. Give the game a look if it sounds up your alley.
