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. 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. Based on the award-winning Divinity Original Sin II video game by Larian Studios, the board game developed by Lynnvander Studios expands Divinity in new directions, adding new stories, side quests, skills, items, and monsters, all in a brand new tabletop experience.

Divinity: Original Sin the Board Game is a boardgame by Larian Studios in partnership with Lynnvander Studios Inc. The project was launched on Kickstarter on 20 December 2019, and funding ceased on 20 December 2019.

Story[]

The story has not yet been disclosed, with livestream and demos using a separate story as to avoid spoilers.

Design and development[]

The original prototype was started in 2018 and took over a year to complete before being brought to Kickstarter. The game itself is story driven, with many elements of the video games incorporated into the design including:

  • Side quests
  • Locations
  • Origin stories
  • Character creation
  • NPC's
  • Tags

The characters are predominantly taken from Divinity: Original Sin 2, with a small number of returning side characters from Divinity: Original Sin.

Several characters will be included as miniatures, some playable, others as encounters and bosses. Larian have indicated that not all characters (Slane specifically) may not necessarily be on the side that players expect them to be on.

The game has been separated on the Kickstarter into 3 tiers:

  • Standard - 1 story book, 1391 cards, 37 miniatures, 342 tokens, 16 dice, 2 cloth bags.
  • Premium - 1 story book, 1391 cards, 45 miniatures, 342 tokens, 32 dice, 20 metal coins, 2 leather bags.
  • Extended - 3 story books, 1596 cards, 47 miniatures, 342 tokens, 32 dice, 20 metal coins, 2 leather bags.
