About

If you like card games, gold coins, fireworks, Trojan warriors, and magnets you should try SeQuel, where the winner is the player who creates the longest sequence. Play cooperatively for the same side, or team up and compete to see who creates the most power! All you need is our game and 2 to 4 other players. 

SeQuel = Sequences of Quantum Elements, The game is family friendly, easy to learn, and of course- super fun. You play SeQuel with Quantum Marks. Each represents an element of the actual periodic table and has a number. In the world of SeQuel, Quantum Marks make power and replace money. We abbreviate them as Q, like Dollars are $. Number sequences of Q let you generate power that increases as the sequence gets longer. The winner of a game is the player or team who creates the most power by building the longest and highest sequence. The winner is the most powerful one, and, if you engage with the story, decides how to use the power: help with the rescue, or shield Earth.

SeQuel works like a highly strategic Quantum Marks powered version of War!

Since Q represent virtual elements that correspond to a real elements from the periodic table, you will encounter some strange names, and a surprising number of familiar friends. No science knowledge is needed to play. That said, we can't guarantee that you won't absorb any information or be inspired to invent a theory of everything. When you play SeQuel with attention, you may find yourself in a zen-like state, far from your daily cares, yet closer to people you care about. Play for the power! 

The game stems from the origin story of Quantum Marks which involves a man from the next dimension, named Czarg, whose family was sucked into our dimension when we started using nuclear weapons on Earth, Now he needs our help to travel to Earth in order to rescue his family. But if he gets here who will follow? So perhaps you will use your power to shield Earth's signature and prevent trans-dimensional aliens from arriving here. Either way, once you play for the power you’ll stay for the fun! So please try our game! 

Players of SeQuel campaign to win power for a side: The guild of Champions play for the power to help an alien rescue his family stranded near Earth and open us to new worlds of opportunity; or, the Guardians who play to power a shield to keeps us safe from advanced alien civilizations. Play cooperatively or compete to see which guild wins more power! Are you a Champion or a Guardian?



Use those special forces to form complex, fun and if you are into it, take that strategies against other players. Like switching whether high or low wins and skipping a player. So, if you're the type of person who is into games, likes Oxygen, Neon, or Platinum, Sequel is DEFINITELY for you! If you’re not that type, you’ll be missing out if you don’t give it a try. Casual games revolution said, "SeQuel is an enjoyable card game, with a nice blend of simple, fast turns and strategic choices". Read the complete preview here:

VISIT THE 'HOW TO PLAY' PAGE  to get an up the updated GAME MANUAL

To become an official guild member and receive a special membership kit, play several games and repower one of each type of Q to create a maximum power sequence, a Qi, the power of everything- made from all 118Q. Your side needs Qi to power it’s mission! You can play SeQuel as a stand alone game night (or day) melee, and work together on the same side, or compete for glory. Play is really fun, but rewards concentration! At it's heart SeQuel is a number comparison game which makes it easy to learn and the winner is the person with the longest and/or highest sequence. The game is not one-patterned, players can change it as they take their turn.

SeQuel is an Indie game created by Virtual Elements and is brought to you in association with Kevin Harrington's InventureX. The Quantum Marks were designed by an art student in Italy whose name we can't reveal as he now has a contract with a major fashion design house. We can tell you that Relyco, from Dover, NH is ready to print your set of Quantum Marks on tear-resistant, water-proof Tridura Paper; and, that every Quantum Mark will have a unique serial number, so that no two sets of SeQuel will ever be the same. Backers will receive a collectible quality game that is going to deliver years of fun!

Our goal is go use Backer funding to implement a web app you can use to score your game via playsequel.com. There you will see your Q building Qi with other members of your Guild. The web site will display the relative balance of power between the Champions, in favor of opening Earth to alien contact- whose Guild is named United for Progress, and the Guardians supporting the shield who play for Earth Alliance. 

We are releasing SeQuel to celebrate #IYPT. 2019 is officially designated by the UN as the International Year of the Periodic Table.  #IYPT - 150 years since the beautiful natural organization of the elements was recognized by the two men featured on the back of the Quantum Marks: Dmitri Mendeleev and Lothar Meyer. Many of us are immediately intimidated by science, especially chemistry. SeQuel can help change that.

 SeQuel is for fun. We want people to play with everything in the universe. Our vision is for SeQuel to spur the imagination, and nurture curiosity about science, technology and the natural world. It is designed for modern attention spans and is the sort of family game that could become a classic and find a place in every home. Your players will notice that the game is based on 118 real elements.  

SeQuEl has a turn-based trick-taking game mechanism. Play is simple and begins by dealing 5Q to each player. The core of game play is just comparing card values, as in war; although the leading player calls whether a High or Low number will win and there are 6 special forces that modify the players options and lots of in your face back and forth. You may notice that there are 118 Q which coincides with the number of elements on the periodic table. Playing SeQuEl players will become familiar with the names of the elements, their numbers, and the structure of the periodic table of elements, but please don't tell anyone. SeQuEl is for fun. 

After everyone in the round has had a turn to play the winner is the player who has the highest or lowest Q for the category of play in effect at the end of the round. The winner keeps all the Q played in the round, and the next round begins.

 A scorecard is provided on which to track the Q won in each game. You can print more scorecards for free from www.playsequel.com. You will notice that this is essentially a periodic table of the elements! Players keep and score Q they have won in any given round which greatly aids in creating and playing the game. A game of SeQuel is over when there are not enough Q left to deal an equal number to each player. In the final hand players will have fewer than 5Q each. The remaining Q are not used in the game.

Between games all players can track the Q that they won on their way to collecting - by winning in play, their own  complete Qi of 118Q after which they can then become full fledged Guild Members. 

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk is that we will not successfully market SeQuEl, and the world won't find out about Quantum Marks, and we will not get funded. We have identified a printer and believe we understand the costs and logistics of producing SeQuEl. We intend to make a quality, potentially collecible product with enduring entertaining and educational appeal.
