Product Description

Product Description

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!

I find it extremely enjoyable and we can typically play a game in about 30 minutes.

I think my family thought I was crazy to purchase Yinsh solely on the advice of strangers but now that we've played it, I've been redeemed.
Jeffrey T. Beehler
Like most abstract games, the concept is very easy but any number of strategies can take this game to many different levels.

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 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.

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.

I'm a fan of Go, so this seemed like a great game to try it. It totally is! There is a lot of reply value, and I still don't understand the best strategy. This is complex enough to make you think, but quick enough to play w/someone new and not thoroughly bore them w/hard thinking involved in Go.

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 an excellent game. As with most games the more you play the better you get. This game becomes more complex each time you play with a chess like strategy system but not so complex that playing with a young gamer is impossible. Another reiviewer wrote something like "this is my wife and I's just one more game game." Well I couldn't agree more. Its not overly long so you can get in a 3 round set before bed. I have since purchased several for gifts because we enjoyed it so much.

I bought this game for my boyfriend for Christmas, and he absolutely loved it! It didn't take long to figure out how to play, and we sat and played Yinsh over and over again that first evening! It's quickly become our new favorite game to play together, and the 30-minute play time is perfect. I was nervous to buy it at first because this is the first game in the GIPF Project I've played, but I'm definitely going to check out the other games, too!

This has quickly become a favorite go to game for me and my wife. Kind of like a cross between connect four and chess but actually fun. This game can be quite difficult to master and sometimes just when you think you've built a decent strategy, you realize that your partner has trumped it with their own! Very simple to learn (watch a youtube video review).
