VINES for Humanity is a strategic puzzle card game for adults and kids that brings together simplistic gameplay with a complex strategy. The rules are simple, but the stakes are HI (Human Intelligence).
In the game, players construct groups of matching cards, called Blooms to rack up their Human Intelligence Points (HIPs) and save the future of humanity. Points increase exponentially as you build your blooms and be the first to play all your cards in hand.
But beware, you’ll need to use mad observation and strategic thinking to be the winner. Emptying your hand before building up your points could mean disaster. But holding on to your cards could mean a bigger disaster is looming.
Everything you need packed in a sturdy tuck box so you can take the fun wherever you go.
The VINES for Humanity card game makes an excellent addition to your game collection or is perfect as a gift for someone who loves puzzles or strategic set building card games. This flagship edition of VINES includes:
VINES are interconnecting artworks growing from a massive single canvas called The Grapevine Wall.
All VINES link together. Two linking VINES is called a Seed. You get no points for a Seed but these are your foundations for blooms to emerge.
Blooms earn you points. Like exponential growth, these points increase slowly at the beginning but can very quickly get out of control.
HIPs are your Human Intelligence Points. At the end of the game, players will gain HIPs based on the total of VINES in their personal Blooms. The player with the most HIPs wins the game.
The Story Behind the HIPs
An artificial intelligence overlord called the Global Brain is emerging. It will understand our desires based on what it learns from the constant flow of data streaming from our every move. It will want to give us what we want. What we focus on will be what it will focus on.
Each HIP emits a burst of creative and social intelligence (what makes us human) into this emerging Global Brain - activating a positive feedback loop for our AI overlord to give us what we truly want, changing our focus away from fear and preparing humanity for a world of technology where anything is possible.
As with the typical puzzle, you'll want to utilize the handy reference images. We have provided free downloads HERE Print Reference Art – The Grapevine Wall
Special News: We will be activating these cards with Augmented Reality in 2020! You will be able to add your accumulated HIPs, so try to keep track for a little longer. Here's a peek at some progress.
