Re: The Limelight On: YINSH
Great review! I personally -LOVE- the aesthetics of the Project GIPF games. I have only played Tzaar so far (har har), but it has that pleasing Go type minimalism that I enjoy.

Re: The Limelight On: YINSH
Great review. We have all of the GIPF series and this is probably our favorite

Not at all. Bakelite is one of those great tactile sensations, and sounds great when you bite it, too. Right up there with stone.

More than you wanted to know?

Great review, by the by. I love YINSH and ZÈRTZ; I suspect I'd like the rest of the Project Gipf games, too.

Re: The Limelight On: YINSH
Terrible game. My 12 year old daughter kept beating me. I guess I wasn't paying attention to what was going on because I am such a better game player then her.

Stupid game!

Re: The Limelight On: YINSH
Let me join the chorus...I love the art and esthetics of the entire Gipf series, including the Yinsh's blue speckled components and the understated board. Lurve it.

My son, 16 years old, and I just played it the other night for the first time. He is an extremely good abstract thinker and this game, to be honest, intimidated me from the looks of it. The play was simple and quick and I did lose 3-1 but it wasn't a total blowout. I'm actually looking forward to playing him again this weekend.

By the way, this entire series of games gets looks from coffee-shop goers, and more than a passing interest. You could certainly plop down at a table and set the board up and get some stranger involved. Kinda like "Casual YINSH"...
