First, I'd like to commend this game for its flexibility. Having four separate player boards allows players to come up with their own battlegrounds in which to fight. The manual lists out nineteen board configurations, but there's obviously many more that can be created with a little imagination. There's also a solitaire, speed game, high stakes, and win, place or show variant listed in the manual to keep things interesting. I'm sure that creative players will be able to come up with their own variants to best suit their needs, should they want to.
The components are colorful and well made. The player boards themselves remind me of thin mouse pads and the magnets are pretty solid and heavy. However, they are small enough so that they fit into an easy to carry pouch, making it an ideal travel game. Magnets have been known to mess with computer hardware, so keep your laptop and other sensitive equipment away from the game if at all possible. I can't confirm or deny if the magnets in this game could cause trouble, but better to be safe than sorry.
The different strategies one could employ in this game can be staggering. The board changes with each move, so players will be forced to adapt to their new environment as they place each piece. With the right placement, players can set traps for each other to really ruin their day. It comes down to whoever can manipulate the magnetic fields on the board, and I have to say that science in regards to magnetism couldn't be more fun.
It's safe to say that the kids really had a fun time with Yikerz! We played multiple games as each one took about ten to fifteen minutes to play.Read more ›
Then my grandson was here and he loved it just as much (he's my hubby's and is same age as my son actually - 13). It definitely was one of his "have to play this again" games.
Then my best friend came back to visit. She went through a heart-breaking divorce earlier this year and was bringing her son for his first long visit with his father, so her mood was really low. When I couldn't think of anything else, I brought out Yikerz! and began to play it with her. No matter how bad she might have felt, she couldn't help but giggle as all of the magnets suddenly clumped together and/or if her attempts to manipulate the various magnetic fields together to keep things "apart" suddenly collapsed and failed. Anyhow - as a parting gift and something to keep her mind off of things when they got too hard, I sent away my Yikerz! game with her; you can play it solitaire and I can always buy another one.
It seems incredibly simple looking at it, but you pretty quickly realize that you can make it pretty difficult by rearranging the four triangles so there is less open space between them and you have to put the magnets together. Play is really simple.Read more ›
4 stars because they should have included a couple of extra magnets.
