Glyph Chess is a chessboard style game for 2 to 3 players, adapted from a Chinese comic book, Tales of Tarsylia. It is said that Glyph is the most popular game in the magical world and can only be played by the most powerful wizards. To win, players must maneuver their pieces to get their Scepter Piece to the center of the board, or eliminate all enemy players’ Scepters.

  1. Hope there's an actual game play video before end of kickstarter. I'm interested but not sure….

  2. That's a very pretty game. Not so sure gameplay-wise, but it's definetly nice to look at.

  3. I wish the players had different pieces (characters) to play so the strategy for each player would be different. As is, I will pass on this game. Maybe future expansions can have different ''factions'' to make the game more diverse.

  4. Those are some large pieces, it looks like each player has a shelf of ornaments lined up in front of them. Might look better in the flesh though I guess

  5. Beautiful presentation and fast dynamic game play! Thanks for a great video!
