Outstanding game for fun interaction with family and friends of all ages.
Fish
It is definitely one of those games that is fun, BECAUSE: it is quick to explain, easy to learn, relatively quick to play, and is more luck than skill.

My bright 5 year old and 8 year old love this game and are both able to play independently.

No, it's not Yahtzee. On the other hand, yes, it's a lot like Yahtzee. You roll five dice. You get three rolls during which you can re-roll all or any of the dice. You want to get maybe two pairs, or even better, three-of-a-kind, or better yet a small straight, and then there's a flush, which you can't get in that other game, which is better yet, and then there's a full house, and four-of-a-kind, or even better a full house, and your large straight, and, of course, your all-dice-of-the-same-number Yamslam, which makes you yell "Yamslam," take any chip you want, and an extra turn. And what all of this Yahtzee-likeness does is make Yamslam easier to learn. But, no, it's not Yahtzee.

There are chips, for example, which you don't get in that other game - four for each of the possible winning combinations. Each chip is worth more points, depending on probabilities. When you succeed, you collect a chip, making scoring for that particular combination one chip less likely. When there are no chips, that combination can no longer score. Then there's the possibility that you might gather one or more of each of the seven kinds of chip, for which you score more points, or that you might get six out of the seven, or all of a particular kind of chip, or take the last remaining chip - in which case you score yet more.

And then there's the "flush" possibility. The odd numbers on the dice are one color, the even another. You score a flush (if you want it) when all the dice are the same color.

Put all these together and you have something that is clearly not Yahtzee. Fewer combinations, a faster game, more possibilities for scoring, all stored in a metal tin that contains the game with efficiency and grace.

I tried this game because I am tired of the typical games I see on store shelves. I searched Amazon and read descriptions and reviews until I came across this. We have played several times now and both my 5 and 7 yr olds caught on right away. Not a hard game. Lots of fun and gets more challenging as the chips start to run out. A little like Yahtzee/poker in the combinations you are trying to roll, but simpler in that you just grab a chip when you achieve one of the rolls. I also like that it is a quick game, so it keeps everyone's attention and enthusiasm up.

I bought this game for my husband for Christmas because we wanted more 2 person games that we could play together. It's a very fun and addictive game. The first night we played it (Christmas night) we stayed up until midnight and kept saying "just one more game". One more game turned into many more. We loved it.

It's a fun combo of yahtzee and poker. It's really a neat twist on two classic games.

I became addicted to this game for a short time after I received it. I played it solo time after time and competed with myself for a higher score. It's even more fun when playing with friends! Simple rules, nice construction and thick plastic chips with a decent heft to them.

My kids love playing games and I bought this for a recent trip. My 5.5 year old son loves it as do I and I'm often bugging him to play it with me :) Love the tin it comes in too.
