My Thoughts

After the Scrabble Flash and the Simon Flash, here comes another addition to the Flash technology of Hasbro – Yahtzee!   I love to play the dice game and now I can do it without worrying of loosing the small dice when I travel with the RV.   This Flash technology will open up possibilities for you if you travel often whether for pleasure of business.

Like the other games in the Flash technology, the Yahtzee has a game menu.  Choose between the four games to start one.

Yahtzee Poker – This game is for one player.   As this game suggest it, the combinations of dice is similar to poker.    The various combos available to you while playing Yahtzee Poker are: 2 of a kind (1 pair), 3 of a kind, 2 Pair, 4 of a kind, Full House, Small Straight, Large Straight, First Yahtzee (5 of a kind) and Additional Yahtzee.   You can reroll any die up to two more times.   The goal of the game is to score as many points as possible.

Yahtzee Max -  This game is for one player. This game objective is to score the most ones, twos, threes, fours, fives or sixes as possible.   You can reroll each die up to three times to accomplish this game.   If by the end of the game you score 63 points, you get a bonus of 35 points!  You have to keep going until you have scored for all numbers.

Yahtzee Wild – This game is also for one player.  The objective of this game is to roll three Yahtzee in the least possible time.   As you probably know a Yahtzee is scored when all five dice are the same number.   In this game you have a WILD dice.   Wild dice represent any number and you can hold up to five WILD dice.  After you have rolled three Yahtzee, the game will end and your time in seconds will appear on the dice.

Yahtzee Pass – This game is for two or more players.  Take turn to try to roll a Yahtzee before the time runs out.   If you roll a Yahtzee before the time runs out, the dice will display the YAHTZEE! and then ask you to pass it to the next person.    If you can’t roll a Yahtzee before the time runs out – you are out of the game…

The dice also comes with a fun storage case which will allow you to carry them anywhere you are going.   

My only disappointment is that there are so many game for one player and that you can’t play the original Yahtzee with others.   I was expecting to have the ability to play the regular Yahtzee game with at least another person but it isn’t the case.   I guess you can’t beat playing Yahtzee with others without rolling the dice in your hands…   Nevertheless, this game is great for a down time for the kids or for entertaining yourself when you are on lunch time or travelling alone.

Yahtzee Flash is available at your favorite toy store.
