YAHTZEE!!! Do you remember that phrase? It’s when you score a straight roll in the beloved game, Yahtzee (of course!) This was and still is my favorite game of all time. I guess what drew me in to Yahtzee in the first place was its resemblance to poker. I remember one summer when I was young, my neighbor taught a few kids in the neighborhood how to play poker. In retrospect, he was bored and needed something to do. It’s amazing what you can teach little kids! There was no money exchanged, but poker afternoons made for lots of fun. Ask me to play now, and I honestly can’t remember – I only know poker basics.
Which is where Yahtzee comes in. With poker and Yahtzee having the same basic concept, I was able to relate the skillsIi learned that summer to a fun board game. I should mention that Yahtzee was more accepted as a game for children than poker.
The best part about Yahtzee is the whole family can get involved. Children 8 and older can enjoy Yahtzee during family game night.
