Who remembers playing Yahtzee growing up? I still play it, the mobile version on my phone but I remember playing the original dice game growing up. It was one of the simplest games you could get, dice and luck is all you needed.

The sound of the dice being shaken, tossed and landing in hopes you get the right combination to beat your opponents score. If all five dice landed on the same number you were in luck, you got Yahtzee!

Hasbro games has another treat to add to our ever growing family game collection with new World Series of Yahtzee game! This isn't your typical game of Yahtzee, instead of taking turns you actually play against your opponent at the same time!
Here's how it works: In this face-to-face, casino-style dice game everyone rolls together and tries to match their dice to the Yahtzee game combination cards on the board. Roll fast to try and get the highest score and be the first to lock in and start the electronic timer. When the rock-and-roll counter stops and everyone is finished rolling, grab your card for points. The highest score at the end of the game wins!

This is ultimately the fastest way to play Yahtzee ever. There's no waiting your turn or having to keep score with this electronic version of a classic game. Are you a roll and look player or do you concentrate on getting that one card? Whatever way you play, make sure to be the first to lock into that electronic board, first come - first pick of the cards on board!

World Series of Yahtzee is rated ages 8 and up. It comes with 20 dice, 22 playing cards, 1 electronic unit, 1 game board, 4 barriers and a game guide. 2AA batteries required but not included.

  2. Just remember pulling out the game after about 10 years since I had last played, and only finding 4 dice. Tore the house apart and could not find a 5th! Kinda hard to play with only 4!

  4. Yes!! Yahtzee was the only game that my whole family played together. It was very hard to get my dad involved in games of any sort, but he really loved playing Yahtzee with us!

    thanks

  14. It was (and still is) a great camping game! Everyone knows how to play it, no explanation is needed and it's mellow.
