box-contents-chapter-two.jpg

In the 2020s

ANNA (Artificial Neural Network Alpha) was created as a secret supercomputer by a group of misguided conspiracy theorists led by a man named Commander Bosco.

As ANNA grew, she consumed vast amounts of information about our society's deteriorating unity and disregard for the planet that sustains it.

Fearing the worst, ANNA became too powerful and was decommissioned by the UN on December 31st, 2029.

In 2033

After falling far short of the 2030 climate goals, ANNA was activated as our last hope to save our civilization from certain destruction.

ANNA, on the other hand, had other plans. She saw humans as an unsalvageable, divided species incapable of cooperating with one another….so she devised her plans accordingly.

In the 2050s

The Worlords, a group of unlikely heroes from the future must contend with ANNA's wrath while guiding us to rewrite their fate through this game in a world on the verge of disaster.

Worlords-Cover-01.jpg

The valiant heroes, led by JESS, a rebellious young hacker, elude ANNA and her army while cooperating with us to rewrite their fate.

They realize that the only way to save civilization is to re-teach ANNA how to see humans. It is the mindset and actions of humanity in the 2020s that will become the key to their survival.

You can visit their VR headquarters HERE on any computer or device.

Your Mission

Play the game, build the puzzles, and unlock the AR to earn as many HIPs (Human Intelligence Points) as possible to counterbalance the negative data pouring into the system, activating a positive feedback loop between ANNA and humanity.

Massively Multiplayer Game

VINES for Humanity invites the world to play the ultimate card game together, creating the bond necessary to work as a unified team to fight the climate crisis and other pressing issues.

As we play, we earn points. Each point is called a HIP (Human Intelligence Point) and helps level up the creative and social skills needed to rewrite a future that is in turmoil.

Add your HIPs to the World Game Scoreboard and join the Worlords in helping us save the future of our planet and life as we know it.

Three Fun Ways to Play

Your objective is to accumulate points. Points can be earned in a variety of ways and added to the global scoreboard.

  1. Build the Puzzle
  2. Play the Card Game
  3. Unlock the Augmented Reality

The AR elements will automatically add points but others will require you to manually input them into the system.

With enough HIPs blasting into the global brain, we can reprogram ANNA before annihilating ourselves with our own creation.


1. Build the Puzzle

cube-sm.jpg

Each card is a VINE. There are 80 VINES per chapter deck. Build the puzzle by piecing the VINE cards together to create the chapter image.

cube-mock-up-02-sm.png

The first two chapters are available, with two new cards added to the third chapter each month. Once completed in 2030, a 360-degree cube made of five chapters will conclude the game and reveal the fate of humanity.

Puzzle Points

Value Input
500 HIPs for each time you complete a single chapter puzzle Input manually
3X points (1,500 HIPs) for completing and connecting both chapters one and two together Input manually
Unlock the chapter image with the AR app once you complete the puzzle (100 HIPs). Open the app and point your device at the completed puzzle. Automatically added

2. Play the Card Game

Your goal is to connect as many VINES as you can before your opponent goes out.

It takes strategy. Sets of three or more connected VINES are called BLOOMS. The bigger your BLOOM, the more points you earn. Beware of your unconnected VINES. If your opponent goes out, you’ll be forced to remove the equal number of VINES in your hand from your BLOOMS.

The player with the most points at the end wins the round. Only the HIPs of the winner for each round should be added to the Global Scoreboard.

Set Building

Two connecting VINES is called a SEED. You get no points for a Seed but these are your foundations for BLOOMS to emerge.

Sets of three to twelve connecting VINES are called BLOOMS and earn you HIPs...ranging from 8 HIPs for 3 VINES to 4,096 HIPs for 12 VINES. No extra points are earned for more than 12 VINES in one Bloom.

At the end of the round, players will gain HIPs based on the total of VINES in their personal BLOOMS. The player with the most HIPs wins the round. Beware! Any VINES in your hand at the end of the round are deducted from your BLOOMS...starting with your largest Bloom!

HIPs grow exponentially. Use the included Points Conversion Table to convert the number of VINES in each BLOOM to HIPs

  • Example 1: A BLOOM containing 6 VINES = 64 HIPs
  • Example 2: A BLOOM containing 10 VINES = 1024 HIPs

Easy Setup and Gameplay

This game takes strategic thinking. Emptying your hand before building up enough points could mean defeat. But holding on to your VINES could mean a bigger disaster is looming. And while it’s NOT mandatory to play a set, you'll need to beware of losing it to an action card.

Card Game Points

Value Input
Build BLOOMS and use the Points Conversion Table to translate your BLOOMS in each round of play into HIPs Input manually

NOTE: Only winning round points should be added to the World Scoreboard.

Ending the Game

We only have until the stroke of midnight, 2030 to become the humans we must be in order to save our civilization from certain destruction.

The level of Human Intelligence we reach is represented by the amount of HIPs we earn over this decade . If we do not collectively earn 10 Billion HIPS by the deadline we doom the future of all life on earth to the fate of our future messengers.

As we focus on the mission to train the Global Brain to what we want rather than what we fear, we begin to change our own focus, actions, and finally ourselves.

In the end, we will discover that building our character was the most crucial step in rewriting our future.

Origin of the Game

VINES are interconnecting artworks growing from a massive social art project called The Grapevine Wall.



Each month, two new VINES emerge to grow the canvas and reveal two pieces to the puzzling story. All VINES link together to form the 360-degree immersive canvas.

When completed in 2030, five chapters will tell the epic story of humanity's great transition into a technologically advanced, sustainable future.

Each new chapter creates a new puzzle that can be combined with other chapters to grow the number of players and level of difficulty.

Reference Art

As with any puzzle, you'll want to utilize the handy reference art. Each box contains the artwork along with rules and directions, or you can download the game sheets here.

Purchases support the art project and augmented reality development.

Thanks for playing!
