The main goal of Cypress Legacy: The Board Game is to escape the mansion with all of the required Inheritances.

There are 16 rooms located around the map. Each room has an entryway that is marked the color green. These entryways may be freely passed through. Some rooms may have locked entryways. These entryways require a keycard to travel through.

There are also two Storage Rooms that have locked doors. If the player is detained, they have a few options to escape.

Throughout the board you will find these three symbols:







Passing over them will reward the player with certain item cards.

Before the first player plays their turn, lay out the Inheritance cards face down (the amount of these change depending on how many players are playing). All players start the game with a Weapon card and a Cypress Reset card. Weapon cards will help you in combat scenarios against enemy Events or other players. After the setup, the starting player will flip up an Inheritance card and reveal its location on the board. That’s your first objective!

During your first turn, you’ll draw a random Event card and follow its instructions. Then you roll the die to determine how many spaces you can move your player token from your start point. Make your way to revealed Inheritances and collect them before other players.

Once you have enough Inheritances, you’ll receive a Security Override Key card with the location of the item. This item will unlock the mansion for you and allow you to escape and become the winner!

Cypress Legacy is an adventurous and competitive board game for two to six players, based on the Cypress Inheritance Saga. Cypress Legacy is a board game series that will continue to evolve, adding more games, based on locations and events within the Cypress Inheritance Saga series.

Cypress Legacy was created to be an exciting and engaging board game with intellect, depth, and strategy, for the entire family to enjoy. Produced from the highest-quality materials and packaging and evolving through several iterations over the past few years, we believe we have achieved a game that has not only exceeded our company’s goals, but is also something that will appeal to gamers of all ages and experiences. Our testers have shown a tremendous positive response, and we think you will enjoy the game as well!

The story you are playing within begins with Lorna Ritten just learning of Alfred Cypress, the grandfather she has never known. Lorna has always wanted to find out more about her biological family, which has always been a mystery. Her grandfather’s attorney, Phillip Brandt, tells Lorna of an inheritance, which includes one of her grandfather’s many mansions and its contents. Her desire to know more marks the beginning of a very unique and potentially dangerous situation. Lorna has no idea just how important this actually is to her and will be to others.

As Lorna is studying some of the inheritance documents before visiting the mansion, she realizes there are objects that hold key information hidden throughout the mansion. These include maps and other unique items concerning Alfred’s work, as well as more about Lorna’s biological family. And even though she realizes she is being watched and is possibly even in danger, she still wants to move forward. With this in mind as you begin the game, imagine Lorna has called on you as her true and trusted friend to help secure these items from the Cypress Mansion and then get out as quickly as possible.

You will encounter others who are trying to get this valuable information as well, so you need to be careful and trust no one. The mansion itself also has many surprises to make your mission even more exciting—and dangerous. You will need to use the resources available and pay attention to everything. Regardless of what you face, you must continue to acquire what is needed to help Lorna in her quest to learn the truth, gain the assets, and then get out safely.
