Last night my in-laws came over to visit for a while and we decided to play Yahtzee. Of course, Charlie was immediately interested in the dice and the cup, so we let her have a turn rolling. In one turn (three rolls) she had rolled a Yahtzee (five 6s)! On her next turn she rolled four 5s in a single roll! She had a number of other high-point rolls throughout the night (in between playing with a jar of ink pens, some blocks and Little People), but I think the best part for her was when we would all cheer when she rolled something good. And that seemed to happen a lot.
No, some people are born with Yahtzee skills. Unfortunately, they live their entire lives without realizing and exploiting it. The only luck involved is that you found it so early.
Now I just have to teach her to add, and a little about probability so she can decide where to place her points from each roll. Of course, rolling a dozen Yahtzee’s in a game is pretty obvious…
