Divine Right - Fantasy Wargame

Hi all.

I played an original version of Divine Right waaaaaay back, and I now have the same person that was my roommate back then living with me again now. We were reminiscing about some of the great games we used to play (anyone remember Battle Isle on the Amiga?) and Divine Right came up.

I did a little googling and found out there was a 25th anniversary edition released. Unfortunately, Ebay doesn't have any good quality copies (or copies that aren't $500+ US), so I was wondering if anyone might know a store or hobby shop that might have a copy of either version? (Or if anyone has a copy themselves that they might be willing to sell...)

I would love to try and get a game of this going - any resources or info would be most appreciated!

In case anyone is interested, I have heard that Excalibur is working on a reprint they expect to have out by the end of 2016. There is some trepidation in the community about this due to previous issues with this publisher, so feelings are mixed, but generally the hope is that this game will see a re-release in the future.

FYI!

There is a nicely done Vassal module of Divine Right, with Vassal you can play other people online. And you can find several version of the rules in the file section on Board Game Geek.

Our game club played this several times back in the early 80s.

Fantastic game!

Thanks for the info!

I managed to get an unopened 25th anniversary edition of the game through Ebay, so I'm happy how it all turned out. (Still have yet to play it! )

Divine Right was my first strategy level empire game - not counting Risk for obvious reasons. I spent hours as a preteen playing this with my Dad in the late 1980s.

Just a month or two ago my wife found a copy (not the anniversary edition) at a second hand store. I haven't checked that the parts are all there, but the condition looks to be very good - the chits seem to have barely been handled. Not bad for $1.99 Canadian plus tax.

I want to play sometime - for old time's sake if nothing else.

$1.99! Pretty good deal! I think I paid $80 or $90 for this one, so that worked out pretty good for you!
