Yellow & Yangtze gave me hope that, yes, I could...

I'm not sure you can review Yellow & Yangtze without at least mentioning Tigris & Euphrates, so I'm not even going to attempt it. Both are designed by Reiner Knizia , both center around twin rivers and they share a majority of concepts and mechanisms. I am by no means aTigris & Euphrates aficionado: I'm more of a peripheral player. I thoroughly enjoyed all of my plays, I adored the strategy but I had to be honest with myself, it was always going to be a game that I played another person's copy of. I was simply never going to get it to the table with my core group on a consistent basis.

Fantastic game and a worthy companion game to T&E, looking at different time and geographical scales. T&E is all about rising and falling empires; Y&Y about local power fluctuations. Both excellent in their way and worth having both on the shelf.

Thanks for the review! This game kills me. It looks so good, and I love T&E... But I also can't get anyone to play T&E with me consistently. Do I really need to add New T&E to my groaning shelves to sit unplayed next to it's older sibling? I've resisted so far, and will continue to do so (until I see a great deal on Y&Y at least ;)).
