Element Wins Cornerstone Collection Award!

We’re drawing closer to the release of Element on March 1 and we are excited and honored to announce Element is the recipient of the Cornerstone Collection Award from Boardgame Corner.

Boardgame Corner says, “Our Cornerstone Collection is for games we feel are games you should absolutely own. Element is our first entry into the Cornerstone line and a perfect example of this, such a great strategy game with some puzzle like elements. One of those games that keeps you coming back for more, with every experience being unique in some way.”

They awarded Element with this award while it was still in prototype stage! They love it THAT much!

Recently, they received their advance copy as part of our review program and were just as excited, if not even more impressed with the quality of the finished product.

You can watch their unboxing video for the full experience, but here are some of the highlights:

“Really well done… the pieces are amazing!”

“A really neat, abstract, puzzle-y game. I can’t recommend this game enough.”

First Impressions

“What is it like to play?” you may ask. Well, Boardgame Corner did a little periscope video of their first impressions after playing with their Corner Squad and here’s what they had to say:

“I love it!” - Anna

“The rules are pretty easy to understand and yet it adds a lot of strategy to it, what you pick and the different options you have.” - Steve

“I enjoyed it. You can play it on a lot of different levels… At first it sounded complicated, but once you get into it, it is pretty straightforward… You have to be both offensive and defensive.” - Linda

“Wow. The components are amazing. Just beautiful, beautiful artwork on this game…This rulebook is fantastic. Very well done, very straightforward.” - Mark
