The most "fun" of all Ystari games. There isn't any "heaviness" to it. The mechanics are smooth as silk and everything just makes sense. I love all of their games and this new one is a real winner!

Now with many plays under my belt, this game has officially climbed into my 10 rating category. This is the perfect balance of strategy, luck, and interaction for me.

Fantastic game. Good duration, good amount of thinking yet doesn't leave you burnt out. Very cool dice mechanism to determine the resources that enter the game. Cool interaction of mechanics where things can be used both in your favour and then used by others to work against you. Like the Supervisor and caravan, the rules for the cube placement into the souks or the buildings you choose to build.

The luck adds even more to this in my opinion. The dice can be lucky for you, delivering a very rewarding "Yes!" moment, then they can take that a way with an "Oh Sh*t!" moment. It's never something that leaves you feeling like you lost (or won) the whole game from the dice, maybe just took a wee hit on the way. Who wants to play a game where you can work out exactly how to win before you play anyway......

This is very addictive. There are strategies to try and different ways to win, the dice (and how others play) may just cause you to evolve from what you were doing to something new. Each game is different and I think this will add to the longevity of this game as a favourite.

Plays well with 2, using the official variant.

Very enjoyable with 4, different dynamics completely.

I think this game will get a lot of table time with my wife and I and our friends. This would be harder to explain to non-gamers.

The WestparkGamers PC version is great to play. Beats me almost every time and still I return for more floggings..... Such is Yspahan.

The dice mechanism just makes this game really fun to play. I must have somewhere around 200 plays against the AI and I still enjoy it. Addicting game play. I wish my group liked it more since I don't get to play it f2f enough. I do have a soft spot for these types of dice driven games. Outstanding with 3.

Really enjoy this game. The dice add just enough chaos to make it possible for new players to win 1 in 5 games, which is about my sweet spot.

I'm very impressed ... to the point where I'm wondering if Yspahan might be inching toward the very select few games I rate a 10. This now has proven to have held up to repeated play and hasn't lost it's appeal one bit. Does have a healthy dollop of luck, as the use of dice would imply, but there's plenty of room for strategy and the luck factor is very much mitigated by the extremely quick play time. This one packs a lot of punch for a game that can be played in 20 minutes by an experienced group. So ... in my book Ystari Games continue to roll! Update: Yspahan still hits a sweet spot and hits the table often three years after being published. Upgraged to the elite ranks of the very few games rated a "10" in my collection. Note: I still rate Yspahan a 10, but only as a three-player game, where it really shines. With four players, balance issues emerge and the fourth player is, in my experience, at a pretty big disadvantage.

Honest and elegant game fun, without being shallow.

Plays quick although you have a lot of options. Playing is easy but winning isn't. Elegant 2-player variant available. Colorful material makes this game also appealing to sporadic players.

First game in history that proved that a game with dice doesn't have to be stupid and still can be quite fun. 

After 22 plays, and 7 years this game stays a remarkably fast, light and deep game. That is a unique combination. The game stays fresh and doesn't get boring.

[ESP] Un juego realmente entretenido y fácil de jugar.
Los jugadores representan a comerciantes árabes que pueden ganar puntos de 3 maneras:
1.- Dominando la mayor cantidad de locales en las 4 zonas de la ciudad.
2.- Fortaleciendo su estructura de comercio personal.
3.- Enviando caravanas de bienes.

Diciembre 2010:
Lo repito: un gran juego que se juega en muy poco tiempo. Lo recomiendo 100%

Fantastic how this designer managed to find an original way to utilize dice. On top of that this game is addictive, plays fast and is lots of fun. Therefore full marks, this deserves to be in BGG's top 100!
