Yahtzee has been called America's favorite dice game and, with tattered boxes closeted in homes across the nation, that claim is not hard to believe. Put five dice in a shaker, mix in strategy, add luck, stir--then let the fun begin! So how do you improve on something this good? By sprucing it up. Yahtzee Deluxe is aglitter with sparking dice, a velvet-lined playing tray, a sturdy cushioned shaker that has the feel of soft leather, and detailed score cards that make totaling points easier than ever. The detailed instruction booklet even includes a section on the history of dice. The plush playing surface is set inside a light plastic frame that seems a trifle small, but this is a minor complaint. As a handsome replacement for an old, faded game, or a brand-new source of family fun, Yahtzee Deluxe offers the same excitement that has been entertaining players since it was first released in 1956. --George Laney

Yahtzee is one of my two all-time FAVORITE games. Everyone knows the educational value for children, the fun and conversation it inspires...but there's so much more to Yahtzee. Although luck has something to do with Yahtzee, skill and cunning also play an important part. Also, Yahtzee can be as competitive as you'd LIKE it to be (ante up!). It also is a game that will inspire very warm and wonderful memories. I will always remember my two late uncles' weekly Yahtzee nights. They were very close brothers but, in adulthood, the constraints of family and responsibilities did not allow them to spend much time together alone...until they established their weekly Yahtzee night! They would play for hours on end to the sounds of the dice shaking and spilling, the mild cussing, the laughter and smiles! I carry it with me wherever I go and, inevitably, a routine visit becomes a Yahtzee PARTY! New friends, laughter and fun...how can you beat a combination like that (unless it's a five-of-a-kind YAHTZEE)!!!!!

I have always enjoyed playing Yahtzee and wanted to get a nice version of the game. I decided on the Deluxe version because I liked the idea of having a tray to use to roll the dice in and from the picture it looked like it would be a good quality product. Boy was I wrong! The game is of course the classic game, so I won't knock the game itself. But the tray that this comes with is very flimsy. I had expected it to be a solid plastic tray but it is not. The rest of the game is fine, but because I had paid twice as much for this deluxe version, I thought I would be getting a better quality product than I did.

Perhaps the most brilliant (and educational) aspect of Yahtzee is that players learn about probability without even knowing it. Yahtzee is played with five dice that players roll (up to three times, picking up any of the five for a re-roll) in an attempt to fill out different categories on their score cards. 3 and 4-of-a-kind, short and long straights, and so on. The more you play the more you gain an intuitive feel for which are easy and which are difficult to make. You learn about the disparities between the points a particular category pays and its difficulty to obtain with the dice. You learn to plan for different outcomes and to change your plans on the fly, in response to the dice rolls.
But the beauty of Yahtzee is that all of this calculating takes a back seat to the fun of rolling the dice, filling out the scorecard and finding yourself absorbed by the drama that unfolds with each game. It's a brilliant balance that, magically, never gets old. Perhaps it's the simiplicity, perhaps it's the nearly infinite variety of games - whatever, it marks Yahtzee as one of a handful of classic games.
The deluxe edition adds a touch of class to the proceedings, providing handsome gold sparkle dice, a felt lined dice cup (which makes shaking the dice just a notch more special), and a small felt-lined stadium to roll the dice into. The latter, while gratifying in its own way, is perhaps slightly less thrilling than rolling the dice into the top part of the cardboard box and hearing them clatter against the sides.
Yahtzee can be played by a wide variety of ages. It can be played competitively against others, or simply against yourself for a high-score.

If there is any board game that drives wise men and women to make the most foolish of decisions, all in the name of having a good time, it MUST be Yahtzee. The Yahtzee Deluxe Edition lets you take those same insane risks and make a complete fool of yourself in more style.
For the few uninitiated (yes, you there, living in that monastery in Tibet), the object of Yahtzee is deceptively (no, no, make that deviously) simple. When it's your turn, you roll 5 dice in a shaker cup, then take up to 2 more rolls to create combinations similar to poker hands by re-rolling any and all of the dice. You then record your score in one of 13 spaces on the pre-printed score sheet. At the end of each turn, you must either score the value of your final roll in its appropriate space or take a zero in any open space on the score sheet. Ostensibly, the goal of every turn is the highest-scoring 5-of-a-kind combination known as a "Yahtzee", unless, of course, you're sitting next to my sister-in-law, in which case it becomes a "YAHTZEEEEEEEEE! ", after which you wait several minutes for your hearing to return. Whoever has the highest score wins.
The Deluxe Edition dice are made of amber colored plastic with gold colored glitter embedded in it. You shake those dice in a leather-wrapped, felt-lined shaking cup. After agitating the dice, you throw them into a tray that keeps them from overshooting the table and is a much more elegant corral than using the game's box for that purpose. One rim of the tray has 5 depressions into which you can place your "keepers", those dice you don't intend to re-roll. The game also comes with 2 Deluxe Edition scoring pencils and 2 Deluxe Edition score pads as well as 8 oversized bonus chips.

I am 33 as of 3/26 and my first time playing Yahtzee has me hooked. I started playing "Yacht" in a popular CD-ROM from Sierra (you all know what I'm talking about, right?) and knew Yahtzee came from that game. Yahtzee is different with an additional scoring space - 3 of a kind, but has a depth and distinction all its own. I have both standard and the Deluxe Edition Yahtzee and love them both, although the Deluxe Edition is a little more special and appeals to the collector in me. The dice are gorgeous and you will be spoiled by the Deluxe Edition score pads as they are designed attractively. I love the dice cup and the dice tray - with dice HOLDERS!!! A prior review of this game caused me to study and scrutinize the rules from both editions. I don't understand why that reviewer said you were no longer eligible for the Yahtzee bonus chip nor the Joker rule allowing you to score additional Yahtzee scores in the lower space scores. I absolutely mean NO disrespect to that reviewer or their review; it is great and inspired me to write this one, and to hopefully help. The Deluxe Edition and standard Yahtzee rules are identical in that you can place additional Yahtzees in the lower score spaces, only if you have free spots to put them and if you have already scored a Yahtzee. You do get a bonus chip/token for each 100 pt Yahtzee shown on page 7 in standard Yahtzee and page 6 in Deluxe Yahtzee. I regret not learning this wonderful game earlier in life and am playing catch-up with this and with other new games I've learned. Don't hesitate to get this Deluxe Edition of Yahtzee, do it for the collector inside you, it's worth every penny. Now if only Milton Bradley would only make Deluxe Edition Yahtzee score pads for sale ...
