Yahtzee?

Yahtzee is one of my daughters' favorite games and as we were playing today, I was thinking about how much math it involves and I was wondering how many other people play this game. Do you play? If not, have you ever played? For those who don't know, yahtzee is a dice game that has a specific score pad and it requires you to roll 5 die of the same number to be able to get a "Yahtzee".

I've always loved this game and my oldest Brother has a little hand held one that I get to play sometimes and boy, is it addictive. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I have never seen the handheld one. I bet it is fun! I will have to look at it for my daughter as she loves the handheld games and she loves Yahtzee.

I believe he got it at Walmart. It's alot of fun to play even if I do tend to forget the time while I'm playing it. LOL **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

It is such a fun game! I am glad to see that others are still playing it. I am excited to see that people still play games like this and I hope that there is a new revival of board games and games like this. My kids and I still play card games and I enjoy that. We also have learning games that we play quite often.

Yahtzee was a game my family and I played quite often on game night when I was a youngster.The rules of the game certainly are simple enough to understand for anyone and has an even amount of luck and strategy to make it a fun little challenge.

It is a great game and a lot of fun! I think it is a perfect family game and a learning tool as well.

I bet if you would get a game out when there were people there that they would play. I know my daughters' friends even like to play. Adults forget how much fun simple games like that are.

WOW I haven't played Yahtzee in such a long time. lol I remember it was fun, and we played it all the time. I think we stopped as my daughter got older and had a life outside being home with her parents.

You are probably right about when you stopped playing as I know that we don't play with my oldest daughter as much. I wonder why we don't play games anymore like we did 10 years ago.

I have only played Yahtzee a few times in my life. It has probably been close to 20 years since I last played. I should think about getting it for my son. He is getting a lot better at math recently and this game might give him a boost.

It probably would help your son and he would have fun doing it and wouldn't look at it as math. My daughter has learned so much and she doesn't realize that she is learning while we are playing.
