- Summary: Yushino is a CrossWord game with Numbers!If you like word games then you will love Yushino! It can be played with non-english speakers too and you do not need to memorize words or have arguments about whether a word is valid or not. Sudoku lovers rejoice! Yushino is a numbers game that can be played with company. Play with your Facebook friends, or start a game with a random person and make new friends!You place numbers in sequence, just like in crossword games, and collect points. Each player gets 7 tiles at random from a central pool of tiles.In each move you must place a sequence that touches on an existing tile on the board. In the very first move you must place a tile in the center of the board. After each move, you are given new tiles so you always play with 7 tiles, until the tiles are exhausted.When the players can play no more moves, or when one player finishes their tiles the game ends and the highest scorer wins. A number sequence is valid if it adheres to one of two rules: 1) If the sequence contains 3 numbers or more then every number is the sum of the previous two, but we only take the last digit of that sum. So 763 is a valid sequence since 7 + 6 = 13, and the last digit of 13 is 3. Examples of valid sequences are: 35831, 8640, 9763921, 112, etc. 2) If the sequence has two numbers, then the numbers must be adjacent, i.e., they must differ by 1. For example: 01, 10, 89, 90, 09, 67 are all valid sequences. Note that 9 and 0 are considered adjacent.Each number in a sequence counts points equal to the number (a 9 counts 9 points, a 0 counts 0 points, etc). There are also blank tiles, which can be made any number the player wants and count 0 points. The points are multiplied by the multiplier squares on the board. A multiplier square has a 2* or 2X or 3* or 3X in it, and can be used only once; after it is used, it does not multiply any more. The '*' multipliers multiply just the number on them and the 'X' ones multiply the whole sequence that touches them: so 2* multiplies a number by 2, 3X multiplies the whole sequence by 3, etc. Enjoy Yushino!… Expand
Mar 9, 2013Yushino is a mind sharpener, or a brain smartened or just good company for waiting. the sure thing is that it is my new addiction.
In contrast to most games I like (song pop, angry birds or logo games), I feel quite alert instead of diving deeply into nothingness.
You would definitely ask: Then why not play Word Games? Yushino is just like Words with Friends, but with numbers.
The answer is: I am not a native english speaker! Yushino is my path to finally enjoy social gaming in a smart way without the language barrier.
I guess though that it could also be a great switch for word game lovers, as it follows the same strategy pattern. without the cheating of course, for numbers can only speak true!
The game is out on Facebook now, but I prefer playing on my iPhone. There could be some fine tunings (developing level) but the game is still young, so… I want to see more from the game I'm now officially addicted to.
Try it. Good for the game and the brain too. suitable for family games, as a ten year old could easily beat their parents. Worth playing.… Expand
