  • WYPS

    I’ve been playing WYPS recently. It’s a new abstract game that combines word game with a connection game. It’s like The Game of Y, except the pieces have letters on them and must form words.

Some might remember when I got it in December. Others were enthusiastic as well, so we started the game with four three-player teams. […]
