Assassin's Creed Valhalla is a big game with tons of things to do. The game offers interesting activities that you can engage in besides the main story. You can look for treasure chests across England, explore Assassin Bureaus, and uncover hundreds of mysteries. You can also chase after sea shanties, show off your flying skills, win a drinking game, or chill playing Orlog.

Orlog is a playable dice game in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. It is similar to The Witcher 3's Gwent card game. While Gwent received a standalone game, Ubisoft stepped-up and produced a physical version of the dice game.

Ubisoft confirmed that it would release the physical version sometime in 2021. The developer stated that it would collaborate with PureArts in creating Orlog. But Ubisoft did not reveal how much a set costs.

Orlog may seem confusing at first. Once you get a hang of it, the game quickly turns into an addiction (reminiscing Gwent days). In Assassin's Creed Valhalla, the mini-game involves two players sitting together with bowls, tokens, and special dice to play. The dice features arrow, axe, hand, helm, shield, and line symbols. These correspond to attacking, blocking, and stealing abilities. The line symbol, however, grants the player the ability to use special attacks called God Favors against their opponents. The more you win at Orlog, the higher your chance of gaining God Favors totems. It's like winning special Gwent cards from opponents in The Witcher 3.

On a related note, check out our review of Assassin's Creed Valhalla in which I stated that "Assassin's Creed Valhalla is a great Viking game but it's not really a true Assassin's Creed game that I've been waiting for. The game tells a captivating story of a Viking warrior trying to settle in England, but it's not what this long time Assassin's Creed fan wants."

Assassin's Creed Valhalla is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia.
