Julie Got 3 Yahtzees

How can you compete against a person who rolls 5 of a kind 3 times in one game? How, I ask you?

You can’t.

Yahtzee is a harsh mistress. One moment you’re at the top of the world, rolling a lot of high numbers, filling in your 3- and 4-of-a-kind with big scores. The next minute you’re worried about how many 2’s you can roll so that you make your upper bonus. But all the upper bonuses in the world aren’t going to help me beat 50 points + 100 points + 100 points for extra Yahtzees.

This post makes me realize it’s been too long since I went game-shopping. Yahtzee. Pifffft. But, kudos to Jules.

I wish I could take credit for it as something other than dumb luck!

I think he probably used d4's and d20's too though. Just try getting a yahtzee on a d20!

James, for new games I highly recommed Carcassonne (the original, the expansions are good too). Quick to learn, fun, easy. Funagain.com is a good site to check out games on as well.

I don't know if that game with the colored plastic pyramids is any good, but it sure looks spiffy.
