Legend of Vyas, a unique collectible card game based on the great Indian epic, the Mahabharata positions itself as a first in the card game genre to be based on this ancient yet popular work of literature. The game not only promises hours of intriguing play, but also aims to pique interest and educate young people about the Mahabharata.

The brainchild of two friends, Huren Sivaraj and Varun Devanathan, who imagined a game they would have played in current times that would have revolved around the characters, stories, and lessons of the Mahabharata. The idea to create a collectible card game took root on the instinct that such a format would bring to life the characters, stories and messages that make the Mahabharata, one of the most important literary works of cultural and historical significance.

Vansh Games worked with renowned Indian digital artist, Anirudh Sainath, who also goes by the moniker Molee, is well-known for his artistic depictions of Hindu Gods and characters from Indian mythology.

“Legend of Vyas seeks to re-introduce the Mahabharata in a contemporary format, to resonate with today’s youth. We have coupled an exciting game, involving strategy, skill and a touch of fortune, with stunning artwork, depicting heroes, spells and weapons. Our vision is that this combination will stimulate a deeper understanding and connection with the beloved epics and mythology of ancient India,” says Varun Devanathan, creator, Legend of Vyas and partner at Vansh Games.

Legend of Vyas will be launched in Hyderabad at Comic Con on September 12 and 13.
