If you've Never played Yahtzee before, this is a great place to start. Yahtzee, in it's most basic form, is just three dice. But the rules change once those three dice are rolled, and only two are then rolled for each player. Afterwards, the player marks their tile with a pencil, and then rolls the remaining dice. If both dice land in the square directly below the player's tile, the player marks that square with another pencil, which then gets rolled. If both dice end up on the same square, the player marks a third square. This continues until one dice ends up in a final square, thus marking a Yahtzee. Note that while the game ends once any Yachtzee has been made, the Dice have roll until someone reaches that point. If only two dice end up in the same row, the player only gets a pair of Yahtzee. If only one dice ends up in its final square, the player loses. This is a great game, and super simple to learn, but it does take practice to play a perfect game. But, once all the practice is completed (about 3-4 games per day), you'll be playing Yahtzee like David Bowie.

As the game starts, you are put into an elevator and brought to the top of the building. As soon as you step out the elevator, you see that you are in the penthouse board room, where, a robot (Gene) welcomes you and offers some helpful hints on the board game, as you place some of the game boards and tokens on the huge control panel (table). After this, he gives you one of the seven game play boards (currently) and you are free to play, goof off (for over 30 minutes) and even challenge players to give you a game of Ultimate Yahtzee (a one-on-one duel). Gene will also play with you for free and give you 10,000 points to play and win. d2c66b5586
