Fire, Water, Earth, Wind. These four elements have driven mankind's mythology, philosopher, and science for eons. Take on the role of a Sage to master these elements in this easy-to-learn, but highly strategic game.

Players take turns drawing and placing up to four element stones to encircle opposing Sages. Each element has unique properties that players can use to to block an opponent’s movement.

Feed walls of flame, move raging rivers, raise 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; lightning, wood, and metal. 

*A note on the new edition: Components have been updated with higher quality materials, and have been adjusted to be color blind friendly.
