Yahtzee is an easy game to learn and play in the classroom. As players roll dice, they need to consider probability, critical thinking, and smart decision making. They need to assess their situation with every roll of the dice, putting into focus a number of important cognitive skills.
How to Play
Players get to roll the dice up to 3 times with each turn to try and achieve objectives on the scorecard. At the top of the card are single numbers (1 through 6), prompting players to collect that number throughout each of their 3 rolls and total the highest value possible using only that number. On the bottom is a series of roll-based objectives. Players need to roll 3 of a kind, 4 of a kind, full house, large and small straights, chance, or match all 5 dice for a Yahtzee! If no objectives can be scored, a player can take a 0 in one of their remaining spaces. Whoever has the best score after all objectives have been filled in is the winner.
Set includes 1 Yahtzee shaker, 5 dice, 1 score pad, and game guide. For 2 or more players, ages 8 and up.
