“Cyvasse, the game was called. It had come to the Planky Town on a trading galley from Volantis, and the orphans had spread it up and down the Greenblood. The Dornish court was mad for it. Ser Arys just found it maddening.”
— A Feast for Crows, George R R Martin
I do some design work for the Bristol Design Forge and one of our clients gave me quite the challenge: they wanted me to design and make a board game based upon a board game vaguely mentioned in the Game of Thrones books called Cyvasse.
Challenge accepted. This board game has been developed from fan-made rules and the few mentions it gets in the Song of Ice and Fire books. Each symbol has been hand-drawn then laser engraved into each piece. The board and all the pieces have then been hand-finished and waxed for protection.
* Board size 350mm x 350mm
* Set up screen 400mm x 230mm
* 66 land tiles
* 46 player pieces
* Two different sets of rules for two different gameplay styles
