Description Edit | History

¥€$ (YES) is a new game produced by Armstrong Company and launched in 2004. There are 6 types of commodity spread across the 5 continents and players must control these to satisfy two different winning conditions. So to win, you might need to control two tractors and two factories for one condition, and one commodity in each continent for your second condition. Alternately, the first player to earn 1 million wins.

There are decks of cards; Country (which shows a commodity in a country and a price, e.g. Factories are in Britain and cost 70,000), Yes (good stuff), No (bad stuff), Auftrag (winning conditions). You start with some cash money, a few countries and two Auftrag. For the countries you own, you put the plastic commodity onto your colored disc onto the country. So the player owning Britain puts a factory on one of their discs onto Britain. This way, ownership can be seen and can change.

The game is driven by two dice. The player rolls them, chooses one for itself and the other for the player on the left to use. The dice are marked Buy, Sell, Country, Yes, No, Cash. Buy means you can buy a commodity/country from another player - regardless of whether they want to sell it - at the price on the card. There is also a red die you can roll to gamble on the price, making it higher or lower. Sell means you may sell a Country back to the bank. Country means you draw a Country card and place the commodity on your disc on it. Yes/No means you draw from the appropriate deck and apply the result, e.g. all players get a dividend, or pay a tax, etc. Cash means you move a marker on the board and whoever has that commodity or continent gets a bonus.

Since the game is completely driven by two dice, it is pure chance if a good thing or bad thing happens to a player. Due to the nature of the dice, the cards, and the rules, it is quite possible for the game to end in the first round. ...or it can go on forever. [See Fluxx.]

1 My own strategic version op YES
I have the YES game, beautiful board, nice game-pieces and cards. But the game itself wasn't any good. So i decided to make my own rules for the game, with the same game-components. So I made new rules with some ingredients of known games, but it still is a new game. What you need? The YES game and this pages. (The rules are translated from the dutch version)

2 Strategic YES rules. (dutch)
Volledig herschreven regels om met dezelfde spelcomponenten een totaal nieuw spel te spelen. Veel strategischer en met meer mogelijkheden de andere spelers te blokkeren in hun weg naar de winst. Probeer het eens, zo is je YES-spel toch nog iets voor de meer gevorderde bordspel-speler

0 Strategische YES-variant.
Ik won het YES-spel op een bordspeltornooi. Het is om eerlijk te zijn een zeer slecht spel (je kon winnen in je eerste beurt nog voor een speler aan beurt was geweest) Alles was gebaseerd op geluk. ... Ik heb met hetzelfde spelmateriaal een nieuw spel gemaakt. Door gewoon nieuwe spelregels te schrijven. Het proberen waard. Opmerkingen of voorstellen tot aanpassingen altijd welkom! - I hope i can translate my YES-version in englisch sometime.
