The fabulously famous dice game for ages eight and up, introduced almost 60 years ago, continues to delight millions of players. This retro edition has the same styling as the original game with an aluminum-rimmed dice cup, five dice, score pad, and bonus chips.
The object of the game is to score the most points by rolling five dice to make certain combinations. The dice can be rolled up to three times in a turn to try to make one of the 13 possible scoring combinations. A game consists of thirteen rounds during which the player chooses which scoring combination is to be used in that round.
At that point, the winner screams “YAHTZEE” at the top of their lungs in the loser’s face, ocasionally resulting in a drunken brawl. This is a great game for all ages, and the retro styling will have added appeal to collectors, senior citizens and aging hipsters. The list price is $14.50, but it can be found for a bit less online and at almost any retailer that sells board games.If you can’t find it, you can order directly from the manufacturer, Winning Moves.
