It looks like Paradox Interactive (CK, EU, etc) is planning to do board games. They posted a survey.

To the question how important is the element of luck, I did not know what to reply: I’d hope for a game to have the least of it possible. So I guess that makes it important: it makes its absence important.

They also ask which of the following computer games would you like to see as a board game. As much as I like Europa Universalis IV, I cannot picture it in a game played for sixty minutes, or even four hours. Sure, Europa Universalis was a game at start, but game duration was evaluated to 15 days, wasn’it? Not that it is terrible thing per se, just that a game you find no one to play to with you is no game, in the end.
