Sometimes you will have the impression that there is nothing but chaos on the board. You line up a few of your pieces and the next thing you notice is that they have changed color! The more pieces on the board, the more difficult it becomes to predict what will happen. But also the more opportunities you have! So do not worry: you will get your chance. Just stay alert, and you will create your own little bit of order in the chaos!

YINSH is a tempestuous game! The players each start with 5 rings on the board. Every time a ring is moved, it leaves a marker behind. Markers are white on one side and black on the other. When markers are jumped over by a ring they must be flipped, so their color is constantly changing. The players must try to form a row of 5 markers with their own color face up. If a player succeeds in doing so, he removes one of his rings as an indication that he has formed such a row. The first player to remove 3 of his rings wins the game. In other words, each row you make brings you closer to victory - but also makes you weaker, because you have one less ring to play with. Very tricky!

GIPF is the first and central game of PROJECT GIPF, a series of 6 games for 2 players. TAMSK is the second game, ZERTZ the third, and DVONN the fourth. And this is YINSH! The Project concerns a system that makes it possible to combine games - not only the games of the project itself, but literally any game or challenge. This system is based on the use of potentials. Each game of the project introduces its own new potential into GIPF.
