If you love board games, then you're going to love what the Epic Games Store has to offer. Three digital board game adaptations are not only going to be available, but they'll be offered for free. That's right, you can get Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne: The Official Board Game, and Pandemic: The Board Game all free from February 6 until February 13.

Even if you miss the window, there's another offer still available. Starting February 20, these three games are going to available on the Epic Games Store for $9.99 each, the same price as on Steam.

In a statement, Asmodee Digital CEO Pierre Ortolan that they managed to leverage their board games and combine it with their digital experience in order to offer players a new kind of experience. He went on to say that mixing "the two most thriving categories of entertainment, board and video games, our titles are intellectually rewarding, driven by player choices and set in awe-inspiring universes." People at Asmodee Digital not only love to develop and play these kinds of games but also want "to get more and more people onboard with our passion" and this is why according to Ortolan, they are more than "excited by our partnership with the Epic Games Store as it enables us to introduce new audiences to the genres we love."

Here's what's in store for everyone. Let's start with Carcassonne: The Official Board Game. This is a tile-placement game set in what is clearly a southern French landscape. In fact, the title Carcassonne is taken from a medieval fortified town of the same name in southern France known for its city walls.

Up next is Ticket to Ride. What's good about this game is that the mechanics are simple enough that it can be learned within a few minutes. However, it offers enough action and tension to make sure that even new players get involved and finish the game. Each new game offers unique experiences, ensuring that players need to come up with good strategies.

Finally, there is the highly acclaimed Pandemic: The Board Game. The digital version continues to offer the same excitement as the board game, especially with its cooperative turn-based format. In the game, the world is at the brink of extinction and players are part of a team that hopes to prevent that. Players need to not only contain diseases from spreading, but find a way to cure them.

What do you think? Excited yet for this offer?
