Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Sometimes you will have the impression that there is nothing but chaos on the board. You line up a few of your pieces and the next thing you notice is that they have changed color! The more pieces on the board, the more difficult it becomes to predict what will happen. But also the more opportunities you have! So do not worry: you will get your chance. Just stay alert, and you will create your own little bit of order in the chaos!

It is very simple to learn or teach but very complicated to master.
J. Andreson
The game plays quickly -- usually a single game lasts less than twenty minutes; so, in that sense, the game is more fun, at least in my opinion that Chess or Go.

Yinsh is an abstract strategy game in a series of games called the GIPF project. They were all designed by Kris Burm. The games in the series include Gipf,Zertz,Dvonn,Punct,Tzaar Board Game, and Tamsk. I personally own them all. By many estimations including mine and the website [...](a database of board games) this is considered the best in the group. What makes this stand out? It is an incredible game that has very simple rules. The object of the game is to achieve 3 lines of 5 in a row of your color before your opponent.

There are 2 types of playing pieces on a very geometrical board. One is a ring of which each player has 5 of their color. The other type is disks with black on one side and white on the other similar to Othello. The game begins by placing the rings on the board then during the game the disks are placed inside the ring with the player's color up. The ring is then moved along one of the lines on the game board. As the ring moves each disk that it passes over then is flipped regardless of what side is up. When 5 in a row is formed of either color that row of disks is removed from the board and the player whose color is removed also has to remove a ring.

This is truly a game of strategy from the onset of setting up the board to the very end. You will have to plan ahead through the whole game and expect the unexpected.

Yinsh has what most abstract games lack; it is actually fun to play. The rules take about five minutes to learn, the concept is simple, and it will keep you constantly on the edge of your seat.

Great for newbies and veterans alike. You will not be disappointed.

This is my favorite of the GIPF series of games that I've played (although all the others are worthwhile, too). The making of a great game is one in which the rules are relatively easy to grasp, but the strategy has many levels of complexity, and that is certainly the case here. It's a very engaging game, where a single move can change the situation so drastically that thinking more than a couple moves ahead is nearly impossible. If you are a fan of abstract strategy games, I highly recommend this one.

Yinsh was a game I ordered on a whim and I am glad I did. Upon opening it up the first thing you notice is how sturdy all the pieces are. the box is super tough, so is the board and the hard plastic pieces. The game doesn't have a rich theme like most board games but it is still super fun and really engrossing. The strategy is a little shorter than chess but its still present.

This game is awesome! The components are wonderful. Like most abstract games, the concept is very easy but any number of strategies can take this game to many different levels. I'd recommend this game to couples. It's specifically for 2 players and my husband and I had a really great time with it. I can't stop thinking about it.

You know. . . I wasn't sure I would like it. The reviews convinced me to make the plunge. It was easy to learn and challenging to master. Great game.
