Vye is an area control game that plays quickly across an ever increasing, and oftentimes contentious board, usually taking less than half an hour. It has been favorably compared to Carcassonne, Fealty, Othello and Go.
To play, you take five cards and lay them out as the unconquered lands of Vye. Players choose a color and put their matching house, and tokens in front of them. When played, each family member in a house claims neighboring cards with a unique trait. You’re dealt four cards and during your turn you can play from either your hand or from family. Playing your cards strategically enables you to capture your opponent’s lands and control the largest kingdom, thereby winning the game. Will you see your kingdom fractured or will you remain united and claim the kingdom of Vye before time runs out?
