LOVE Yahtzee, HATE this edition
on July 25, 2013
I love Yahtzee, and for years, I had just used random 6 siders taking from other games, and printed the scorecards off the internet, but I was out shopping and saw this "classic" edition in the clearance bin for $7, and thought, "The dice look cool and maybe its time to get a "real" version. So I bought it and took it home and we played it, and now I see why it was in the clearance bin. The black holder for the dice, that is supposed to act as a rolling cup is rubbish. It doesn't stand up, so someone has to be constantly holding it upright or all the dice spill out. The dice themselves are cheap, lightweight dice that feel like you could crumble them in your bare hands, and I fully expect them to break at some point. It does come with a full sheet Yahtzee score cards (yippee), and NO rolling tray. Even my moms "cheap" Yahtzee game from the 90's included a really cheap rolling tray. Hasbro has redefined CHEAP for games, a bit too cheap for my taste. Someday I will just buy one of the Deluxe editions and be done with it.
