Deploy your army of Dragons, Elephants, Cavalry and Infantry to defeat your enemy's army and capture his King!
Cyvasse is a game of Battle Chess inspired by a game in George R.R. Martin's epic fantasy series A Song of Ice & Fire. Originating in the Old World of Essos, it is a game of skill played by the clever and educated. Martin described it as a “mix of Chess, Blitzkrieg, and Stratego.”
Cyvasse is played with ten types of pieces on either a standard square chess board or optional hexagonal chess board. The pieces include: Trebuchets (Catapults), Dragons, Elephants, Heavy Horse, Light Horse, Crossbowmen, Spearmen, Rabble, the King, and Mountains.
The 12-page complete rules for Cyvasse are available here free, providing three levels of rules plus optional rules for two game board styles. Basic Cvyasse plays very much like chess. Advanced Cyvasse introduces piece ranking and attacks much like Stratego or Blitzkrieg. Expert Cvyasse adds terrain, ranged fire, and special King rules. Hex Cyvasse, included in the rules, uses a hexagonal chess board and can be played using any of the three versions of the rules, Basic, Advanced, or Expert.
