Greetings, reader. I am Yujiri, an experienced Prismata player with a rating that's usually in the high 2100s. I'm not the best, but I'm pretty good, and this is the page where I put my wisdom on the internet for newbs to read and hopefully learn from.

Update: to my own sorrow, I no longer play Prismata. I still have the utmost respect for the game, but I've grown less and less lazy over the past year, finding motivation to do more work and spend less time on video games, and eventually I no longer had the time to stay into a competitive game. I don't even play Go or browse meme subreddits anymore. Thus, my bittersweet departure. I hope the information here still helps you!

Except where otherwise noted, this site has not yet been updated to reflect the latest balance patch.
