Do you have what it takes?

Assassin's Creed Valhalla has now released all over the world.

Ubisoft steered away from their yearly model of games, and they are gearing up to make Valhalla the best Assassins Creed title.

Now, players are checking out all that Valhalla has to offer including the new board game, Orlog.

It is not uncommon for RPGs to have mini-games within, and this is one of the best we have seen.

It can be confusing at first, but we have got you covered! 

Here's all you need to know! 

 

Overview

Orlog is a board game you can play against some of the NPC's throughout your journey in Valhalla.

The game at its core is two players rolling dice, trying to knock off the other players 15 health points they start the game with.

There are certain dice that perform special moves on your opponent, as well you 'call upon the gods' to help you out. 

 

Dice

Speaking of the dice, here is a rundown of each of the faces do via GamesRadar:

  • Axe: Deal 1 melee damage
  • Arrow: Deal 1 ranged damage
  • Helmet:  Block 1 melee damage
  • Shield: Block 1 ranged damage
  • Hand: Steal 1 God Token from your opponent

 

God Tokens

The dice themselves can also be outlined with a gold print.

This means you also gain a God Token, which can be used on the aforementioned Gods Favors; which are deadly attacks on your opponent. 

 

God Favors

These special moves that you can use will cost some if not all of your Gods Tokens.

But they are worth it, as it can eliminate most of your opponent's health!

Here is a rundown of all of the different types of Favors you have access too:

  • Thor's Strike: Deal damage
  • Idun's Rejuvenation: Heal health
  • Vidar's Might: Remove opposing helmets
  • Baldr's Invulnerability: Add helmets/shields for each helmet/shield already rolled
  • Skadi's Hunt: Add arrows for each arrow already rolled

This is essentially all you need to know regarding Orlog!

It is not a complicated game, but one that requires quick thinking and planning of your moves! 

Best of luck.
