Element Silver Edition


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 yours 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!

Understanding the subtile and diverse yet powerful nature of each Element is key to surrounding your opponent and claiming victory in this thematic abstract!

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 Sones color blind friendly. We hope that this will allow those who deal with this on a daily basis to enjoy Element better!

Can a Fire stone replace a whirlwind?
Yes, one Fire stone can always replace the Wind stones on a space, regardless of the number.

Do you need to use all of the stones you draw on a turn or can they carry over to your next turn?
Stones do not accumulate or carry over to another turn. All stones must be drawn and played on that turn.

Can a headwater stone immediately flow to the right or the left or does it need to go straight one space?
The headwater stone can immediately begin making directional changes to the right or left or go straight.

Can I draw stones one at a time and decide as I draw them how many I wish to draw?
No, you must commit to the number of stones you wish to draw and pull all of them at once.

When jumping Wind, can a sage exit on top of a Wind stone and continue moving?
No, a sage can only exit a Wind jump into an empty space.

After a sage is surrounded, does that player get a turn to draw stones to see if the drawn stones will allow them to free their sage?
No. If a sage cannot make a legal move at the beginning of their turn, then it is surrounded and the game ends. The player does not draw more stones from the bag.

Why is the design on all the element stones the same? Shouldn’t they have their respective elements on them?
They all have the same design to prevent someone from being able to feel the difference between the stones when drawing them, avoiding an unfair advantage.
