2-4 Players - Ages 14+ - 30-60 Minutes Playing Time
Fire, Water, Earth, Wind. These four elements have driven mankind’s mythology, philosophy, and science for eons. Now, master these primal forces in this easy-to-learn, but deeply strategic game.
Players take turns drawing and placing up to four Element Stones to encircle opposing Sages. Each Element has unique properties players use to to block an opponent’s movement.
Feed walls of flame, move raging rivers, rats impenetrable mountain ranges, and even bend the winds to your command. Transmute one Element into another with the Rule of Replacement or sacrifice stones to help your Sage avoid capture.
Understanding the subtle, diverse yet powerful nature of the four elements is key to surrounding your opponent and claiming victory!
Element Silver builds upon the legacy of Element by offering three additional modes of play along with the classic version. By adding silver stones functioning as a fifth element, players now have three additional modes of play with Lightning, Wood, and Metal. Upend the strategy of other players with the storms Lightning creates, create blues and forests with Wood, and Metal’s far reaching effects can be felt across the board!
A note on the new edition: We have updated the quality of the materials used of all the components and taken the opportunity to make the Element Stones color blind friendly. We hope that this will allow those who deal with this on a daily basis to enjoy Element better!
