Elements is a game with a modern twist on the ancient theory of Alchemy.
Elements consists of four primary elements and four secondary elements. The primary elements, Water, Earth, Fire, and Air, form the foundation of a substance. The secondary elements, Oil, Wood, Metal, and Power, bring the substance to life!
Each substance requires between 3 and 5 elements before they are complete. The more difficult the substance is to complete, the more points you earn. Be the first Alchemist to earn 10 points to be declared the winner!
Substances can be completed naturally or artificially. Complete your substance naturally without the use of Meta, the 9th element, and earn bonus primary element gems that can be used to complete other substances or fused into secondary elements!
Your actions each turn depend on your dice roll. Each dice outcome is unique, and if you roll doubles you earn a useful bonus effect! The dice add an element of luck while managing your cards and gems add an element of strategy.
Will you become the ultimate alchemist and harness the hidden powers of the elements? Give Elements a try to find out!
