Yinsh is probably the easiest of the GIPF games to
goal of the game is to capture three rings of your own
color. You first place five rings on the board,
move pick a ring to move. Moving a ring leaves a chip
changes the color of all the chips it passes over.
Whenever a row
of 5 chips is created, they are removed from play, along
with a ring of
the same color. There are a few subtleties in the rules, but
that's the basic idea.
This looks vaguely similar to Othello, but it is much
removing the chips creates new open space, and removing a
(progress toward winning) weakens you.
for yinsh are smart enough to win against beginners, but can
once you get used to the colors changing. Basicly the
very good at keeping track of all the flipping, but
about overall strategy.
