Game of the Month
November 2006
It's not often that the Westpark Gamers vote a game of the month in complete unison, but here it was like this. Yspahan is a game that has us all in its grasp: Günther and Walter immediately started to construct complicated probability tables, the others simply want to play it again and again. Even though it's a dice game its die mechanic itself is a blast, and the various decision trees make life difficult for the player. Several roads lead to victory, but none of them is completely calculable. Luck is the spice of the game, not its dominating factor. In short: a fantastic game, that easily outmatches the already classic Ystari games of late in the fun department.
