World Series of YAHTZEE Board Game, Item Provided For Honest Review…
Have you ever played YAHTZEE? When I was little, our family had the game but we never played. All I knew was that it had little cups to roll dice in. As with other Hasbro games, Yahtzee is getting a fresh new look and updated game play as is being released as “World Series of Yahtzee Board Game“.
The World Series of YAHTZEE is extremely fast-paced and is meant for ages 8 and up. Be warned that you need to move quick and think even quicker to keep up in the game. If you child can do this, then they’ll be fine holding their own during the game. Two to four players can play at once and get their own set of five dice.
Players must roll their dice to match the combinations shown on the board. When they get one, they have to ‘buzz’ in by pushing their button on the console. Other players have five seconds to get a match and buzz in too. Each take the card with their matching combo and a new round begins. The game ends when there are no more cards and the player with the highest amount of points wins.
At first, we were a little confused by the rules. After one trial run, though, we got the hang of it and had a blast playing. The only downside is that it gets very intense and we were all sweating after two games. Frans said, “It’s good exercise for your mind and body.” Very astute, right?
The official description of the World Series of YAHTZEE says that it’s casino-inspired. The only comparison I saw was the design of the cards and the names of straight, full house, etc. I’ve never gambled so I can’t say for certain that there aren’t more similarities.

World of Series YAHTZEE was a ton of fun for our family. Plus, it even forced my daughter to do a bit of math as she calculated her score at the end. Rounds moved at lightening speed and one full game took about 10-15 minutes. There’s not much competition involved unless someone makes the same match as you but gets the point card first. This is an exciting way to spice up your family game night!
