Digimon Board Game (Tagine: Find your Digidestined friends and save Digiworld) refers to the name of a piece of Digimon Merchandise, which is a board game that is based around the Digimon Adventure anime and its characters. The board game was released around the earl 2000 and has a rating of aged 6+ and can be played by 4 players.
Looking on-line, there is some evidence that there actually might be multiple board game that have been released as "Digimon Board game" as there seems to be two different board designs. One board is focused on the early anime when Devimon separated the children by breaking up the island, and the player must battle Devimon. The second board
This is not the only Digimon boardgame that was released as "Digimon Board game" as there seems to be two different board versions found on-line. This version of the board game is set during the Devimon arch of Adventure where File island has been separated and the player must battle him.
The other version with the Tag line "Digimon Board Game: The Ultimate Adventure" seems to be released later and be focused on fighting the Dark Masters and rescuing Kari.
The evil Devimon has separated you from your Digidestined friends by splitting the land into lots of small islands. You must find as many of your friends and their loyal digimon as you can, defeat Devimon and his followers and unite the land once more.
Setting up the DigiWorld
Choose a colour and sit in front of the matching digi-screen on the board. Decide which of the Digidestined you want to play and take that counter in your colour. The only one you can't choose to play is TK, but more than one player may be the same Digidestined character.
Place Ogremon and one black gear counter on Infinity Mountain in the centre of the board. Mix the remaining counters up and make sure they are all picture side down. Put two counters on each empty island leaving three or four islands without counters. Put your chosen digidestined counter face up on one of the empty islands. You are now ready to begin
your big adventure!
How to play
On the board there are bridges between the islands. Starting with the youngest player,
move your counter to any island that is one bridge away from the island you are on
When you get to the island turn over all the counter to see what is there! If you find a Digidestined friend in your colour put it on your screen. If you find a Digidestined friend that is not your colour leave it on the island face up. If you find any ood put it on the food space on your screen. Your Digidestined friend need food to Digivolve into stronger monsters. Everything on your digi-screen is travling with you from island to island.
If you find either a Black gear or any of Devimon's bad Digimon you will have to fight them! Black gears do not affect the Digidestined friends. If you find a Black gear, any good Digimon that you have taken with you ans are now on your screen, turn bad. If you find a bad Digimn it will attack you and you must fight it. If you find a Black gear and there are no good Digimon on the island then throw it into Devimon's Dustbins!
Fight the bad Digimon
Each counter has a circled number, which is its battle strength. Add the battle strengths of all the bad Digimon on the island (on your screens). This is the score of Divimon. Add the battle of your Digidestined friends and any good Digimon you have. If you have any food counters on your screen you can feed them to your digidestined friends so that they can Digivolve to a higher battle strength. You digidestined friends gain 2 battle strengths for each piece of food they eat. (One pieace of food gives a strength of 3; two pieces of strength of 5, three pieces a maxium strength of 7). Put any food counters you use into Devimon Dustbin. If you scored more than the bad Digimon then you win the fight. Put any bad Digimon and black gears into Devimon's dustbin.
If the score is the same this counts as a win for you as the bad Digimon failed. If your score is lower then you have the fight. Take all the counters from your digi-screen and the island (except the Digidestined friends you started with), mix them up with any counters in Devimon's dustbin. Now put one counter face down or every island, if there are any left over, put a second counter on the island that only have one counter until you have used all the counters up. Do not put a counter on any island that another player digidestined friends on it. Now you will have to find your Digidestined friends again!
Winning the game
To win the game you must drive Devimon for Infinity Mountain, but first you must fight his evil friend Orgremon. You must only approach Infinity Mountain with enough Digidestined friends and food so that you can win the fight Ogemon. When Ogremon has been beateb you can fight Devimon. Only TK and Angemon (who has Digivolved from Tokomon) can defeat Devimon. Tokemon will only Digivolve to Angemon to infinity mountain when Devimon threatens TK (he does not need any food to do this). If you can ge to infinity mountain, beat Ogremon and have TK ans Tokemon with you to defeat Devimon, you have won the game and saved the Digiworld from destruction.
