This is cool! The game is logic from beginning to the end. In my first play I wasted my dice points because I loved to drill for oil whenever possible. Found out that you can deal effectively with information when you always keep stock notes on your hand. Never played a game like this before.

For me this game is real fun since you really play with informations here (the title i-9-n just means i-nformatio-n) in a way I have not seen before in a board game. Every player knows a little bit of the information leading to the last oil well and the processor combines them and gives answers. In each of 6 phases you get more information by looking at the results of successful and non-successful oil drilling and also by trading with stock notes. First I thought you depend much on luck by the dice in this game but then I have seen the experts play i9n at the Spiel 2010 tournament:
In the beginning buy stock notes (but not too obvious to hide your own information!) and let the others drill if you have less dice points. The cool thing is: you profit from the actions of your opponents because you see the results of their actions. Only beginners who are fascinated of the drilling mechanism waste their dice results and drill for oil whenever its possible. Experts always keep stock notes on their hand and in the end sell them to be independent of bad dice results. I watched an expert game of just 25 minutes with 4 young guys playing really clever. By using your brain you can be successful but there is always a rest of uncertainty which makes the game very attractive to me.

a very nice and fun filler. likely best with people who like deduction games.

initial rating an 8 but that is likely close to it's peak.

The i9n processor seems to be a great idea. I like the deduction part of the game best. Roll and move as wells as the drilling licences are not exactly innovative. Nevertheless great game also for non-players.

130929 Yeah, I'm not sure if there is much there there. But its fun and I really do need to bring it back out more.

111021 Needs a few more plays to make an 8, but its promising. I like the premise but it seems to take people a minimum of 1 learning game to get it. What I'm not sure about is how much is there after you get that initial play in.
