RYB is a 2 player strategy board game. Players have 9 Turns to out-wit their opponent and conquer the board. They do this by placing one of their tiles on the board and capturing their opponents tiles in the process.
Play against friends in local multiplayer mode as well as against the AI with 3 different difficulty levels in the Single Play mode. And for an added challenge, go up against players from around the world in the Online Mode.
AI at 3 different skill levels

Add additional challenge by using the Turn Timer.
RYB started as a study into Synesthesia, which “is a perceptual phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.” In this case, its was a relationship between colors and numbers. In the original version, which was actually a physical board game, there had many more colors and numbers and was so complicated that only I could play it.
After many iterations and play tests, I finally had the solid rules and style that made for a fun and engaging game for everyone who played it.
Since then, I have been slowly developing it using Unreal Engine 4 and recently got online multiplayer working thanks to GameSparks.
