Yahtzee is an absolute classic dice game. With a little imagination and fun tasks, you can spice up the dice game as an oracle, a drinking game or an interactive game. This a some fun Yahtzee Variations.
Dice cup, 5 dice, playing block and pen – that’s all you need for one of the most well-known dice games: Yahtzee. In this game, you roll the dice in turn and fulfil combinations of throws, which are noted with points on the game block. There are 2 blocks to be fulfilled: as often as possible the same number in the upper block and figures like streets (e.g. 1-2-3-4 or 2-3-4-5-6) or e.g. full house (2-2-5-5 or 4-4-4-1-1). When all the squares of the game block are filled in, the player with the highest score wins.
Before the first round begins, everyone thinks about a task that the person who rolls a certain combination of numbers first has to do and marks the chosen combination of numbers on the block. Alex, for example, thinks that the first person to roll a full house will pantomime playing an object from the house until the other players have guessed it. If they don’t guess it, the mime gets 0 points. Julia writes down 4 questions that the first person to roll a four of a kind must answer, etc.
Yahtzee is also suitable as a drinking game. In this variation, you simply need to provide enough drinks – alcohol and anti-alc and have a glass ready for everyone. With each Yahtzee – 5 times the same number of points – the person who rolled it may distribute the number of points of his Yahtzee as sips to his fellow players. In a big street, everyone raises their glass to their lips and takes a sip – the slowest must finish the glass. If you roll a chance, you refill all the glasses. At a full house there is a mixed drink for everyone to drink etc.
Admittedly – this is one of the quite exotic and crazy Yathzee variations… 🙂
But doesn’t the dice and the throw of fate perhaps hold the answer to a longed-for question after all?
The oracle always answers – with a yes or no! To do this, you write a simple question next to the requirements, such as: have I already met the great love of my life or does life still have a surprise in store for me this month? If you fulfil the request, the oracle answers with a yes, if you don’t, it means a clear no. The fun of the game stands and falls with original and open questions – it’s best to take questions to which you really have an answer.
Have fun with these Yahtzee variations!
