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

I was introduced to this game on Wii's Family Game Night 3. I didn't pick up the rules right away, but I liked it once I did. Since I don't always feel like looking at a screen, though, I decided to get the card game. The card game was a little more involved than the version I usually play on the Wii, though I think this version is available too.

I do like the card game, but I don't think it is for everyone for the following reasons:
1) The rules of the game can take a while to learn.
2) One of the big problems of the game is that it requires that two people go "hands down" (make a hand that matches the card) before a new round starts. Once you go "hands down"--at least in this version--you aren't playing. If you are the first to go out, then you have to wait around for someone else to go out before a new round can begin. You can go "hands down" almost immediately if dealt the right hand...so it may be boring for some to wait around (particularly kids).
3) The game can take a while to play.
4) All the different types of cards may overwhelm some people.

I personally like the video game version because 1) it is timed, and 2) nobody goes out and has to wait. I think I might play that version and use my cell phone to time things. Of course, sometimes time runs out before anyone goes "hands down", but it makes the game less painful to play.

I got this for my mom, because we love playing Yahtzee. Our family played it right away, and we really liked it. The first game took a while, since we were learning it. But, the next game went much quicker. We loved it!

I'm a big fan of Yahtzee classic, but I always played it alone... then i discovered this card game existed so I ordered it right away... and this game have been a blast with my friends! They still don't like the original but love this one!! Great for playing with friends!! Sometimes it can be a little tedious to go for a Yahtzee, and sometimes you can make mistakes, but in overall its a great concept!

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.
