4 of 5 About as Knizia as they come May 31, 2012
Reviewer: EndersGame from BGG reviewer  
When it comes to economy in game design, Reiner Knizia is an undisputed master. His games frequently feature simple rules matched with careful balance, achieving an elegance in design often built on a foundation of mathematical patterns and numbers.

That's also the case with Yin Yang, where the concept of balance fits the game well thematically. Players start with 10 cards, and play cards in turn, with both the lowest and highest card played in a trick getting white and black yin-yang chips. White and black chips cancel each other out, and the idea is to try to end up with as few as possible after playing all the cards.

It's a nice filler game requiring thoughtful choices, yet without becoming more serious than it deserves. If you're looking for a quick and clever card game that is easy to learn, plays quickly, and has interesting gameplay yet somewhat of a traditional flavour, this is a great choice to introduce to your friends and family.
