I always loved playing Yahtzee. I have a hand held version of the game to take on trips. When I saw this come out, I had to try it. We played it the other day with my wife and 9 yr old son. Its easy to learn, and the outcome is not known who is the winner until the very end (thanks to the Chance cards).

Game play

There are a total of 6 rounds that you will play.
Each round you are trying to gather cards in your hand that match one of the 6 categories:
- Three of a Kind (must be same number AND same color) - worth 3 pts
- Four of a Kind (same color and #) - worth 4 pts
- Full House (2 of same of one number and color and 3 of the same of another number/color)- worth 5 pts
- Small Straight (a series of 4 in a row, like 1,2, 3,4 or 2,3,4,5 or 3,4,5,6 of the same color) - worth 6 pts
- Large Straight (a series of 5 in a row, like 1,2 3,4,5 or 2,3,4,5,6 of the same color) - worth 8 pts
- Yahtzee (5 of a kind of the same number and color) - worth 10 pts

Once someone has one of the available combos listed above, they yell "Hands Down" and put their group face down. The remaining players continue until a 2nd person gets one of the sets available. Then you turn over the 2 combo's and see who has the highest combo value. The winner takes the combo card and associated points and the 2nd place person takes a chance card, which is an unknown value until the end (face down).

Then the game continues as above until all 6 types of combos are claimed

Once all combos are claimed the game ends and you total all the combo points and chance points each player has earned to determine the overall winner.

Great concept. You can still win since the chance points can be worth MORE than winning the combo round points

Check it out. Its a fun new way to play yahtzee and takes about 30 mins

Yahtzee Hands Down Card Game was given to my son for Christmas. Though the game is for 8+, my seven year old (excuse me, seven AND a half year old) had no trouble understanding the rules as I explained them. The object of the game is simple: just as in Yahtzee, you are attempting to score by "rolling" particular goals, such as three of a kind, small straight, full house, and everyone's favorite, Yahtzee! Just think of the bottom of the score sheet and ignore chance. Your hand only ever has five cards in it, as you discard cards before drawing replacements. So simple a seven (and a half) year old can understand!

Here's the one major problem I have with the game: the rules are poorly written. When I say poorly, I mean mind boggling poor. This isn't a complicated game, so the rules do not need to be extensive. However, they need to be organized and consistent. Important facts of the cards, such as there are more 1s, 2s, and 3s than there are of the higher numbers, are relegated to the "Tips" section, instead of being in the actual rules.

Where the fun begins, and when I say fun I mean utter confusion, is when you declare to the table you have achieved a hand. The rules state you say "Hands Down" and place your five cards down in front of you. Easy cheesy, right? Wrong. Here's the contradictions:

1) The rules state on your turn you first "Look at your cards. Do you have the dice cards you need to claim one of the Combo cards on the table? If you do, play a Combo by calling Hands Down!" To summarize the rest of the "on your turn" instructions, if you don't declare a combo, you discard, draw, and your turn is over.

2) A card included in the set called the Reminder Card condenses the rules into a simplified form.

Yahtzee Hands Down: 2-6 Players, Ages 8+, Average Play Time = 15 Minutes

No matter which way I look at it, I'm replacing the luck of the dice with the luck of the cards. There isn't much strategy involved, as the player who is lucky enough to draw the highest combos first will more than likely see victory at the end of the game. If you are good at paying attention, you can observe what people are discarding in an attempt to calculate how likely particular numbers and colors will come up and discard your own cards accordingly.

By the same token, it would not be fair of me to judge this game by other than what it sets out to do. It proclaims to be a quick family card game that may appeal to players of all ages, and it does exactly that. Both Anthony (16) and Vinnie Jr (11) found the rules to be simple and had no trouble keeping up with gameplay, though Vinnie always has the bad habit of letting his cards show. Anthony ended up winning by a landslide and me only getting two chance cards, with Vinnie somewhere in between. Luck was definately on Anthony's side that night.

Those going into the game expecting a lot of strategy will be disappointed, but those just wanting some quick, casual fun might take a liking to this game. It would certainly serve well on trips or for when family night isn't going to be a long one. People who aren't fans of luck based games may not enjoy this, that is, unless they win of course.
