Divinity Original Sin: The Board Game is an epic adventure game set in the world of Rivellon. Up to 4 players take their heroes on a branching, narrative adventure, filled with tactical combat and meaningful choices.

Players read from a story book and decide as a team where to go and how to respond to the world around them. Depending on the characters’ traits and abilities, they might have unique options available to them during the specific story sections.

Story choices direct players to explore locations. Then players place a unique set of cards around the game board. Every member of the party must choose which area to visit. Both the story and the artwork for the locations may discover clues of what to expect. Each player picks up their location card. Some reward your curiosity by rewarding with new treasure or recipe ingredients. Then again, some locations will have traps or lead into combat.

Combat plays out over a number of rounds where players and monsters take turns acquiring action points (AP) and use them to move around, use items, and perform skills. Players use the skills they acquire throughout the game to perform unique and powerful attacks, some with additional elemental effects. Most skills require some cooldown time before they can be used again, so choosing which skills to use when is of critical importance.

The iconic elemental interactions of Divinity Original Sin are here! Make a monster wet, so another player can hit it with ice to freeze it solid and keep it from acting. Or maybe your ally hits the enemy with lightning to make it stunned! Creating combinations is a must to ensure victory against the most challenging of enemies. Watch out though, because enemies can create combinations as well.

Thanks to the Chronicle System, the choices you make will impact not just your own story, but the future of the Divinity Original Sin universe. This game is based on the award-winning Divinity Original Sin II video game by Larian Studios.
