World Series of Yahtzee {Review & Giveaway}

Hasbro logo
When it comes to updating the classics, Hasbro has been on a roll taking the games from my youth and giving them a modern twist. I love being able to tell my kids about my childhood and introduce them to the new versions of titles such as Jenga, Battleship, Bop It!, Life and more.

The newest timeless game to be added to the renovation list is none other than Yahtzee, with the 2013 introduction of World Series of Yahtzee.

World Series of Yahtzee

Taking the original concept of Yahtzee (rolling the same number on all five dice) and adding in action and excitement, World Series of Yahtzee is a fast-paced, casino-inspired, face-to-face dice showdown, where everyone rolls together and tries to match their dice to the Yahtzee game combination cards on the board.

Forget sitting around waiting for your turn and tediously marking down each combination that is rolled, this is Yahtzee for the new millennium!

World Series of Yahtzee review

Upon opening the box, we found that World Series of Yahtzee includes 20 dice, 22 game cards, one electronic unit, one game board, four barriers and a game guide.

Once we had everything assembled and two AA batteries installed (not included), we were ready for some supercharged dice rolling.

World Series of Yahtzee game

In this new Yahtzee, everyone rolls at the same time — fast! — as they try to match one of the combo cards that are dealt onto the game board. Everyone keeps rolling until someone makes a match and is therefore the first to lock-in and start the electronic timer.

World Series of Yahtzee play

Not only have my girls liked the act of starting the timer, but the catchy, jazzy music that plays for the following five seconds always makes them jump up and do a quick, crazy dance!

When everyone has stopped rolling for the round, players who have made a match grab their card (in the order that they locked in) and the highest score at the end of the game wins!

Yahtzee dice

Providing fast-paced entertainment, skill, strategy and luck, this innovative game is a great addition to any game library. Designed for two to four players ages 8 and up, World Series of Yahtzee has been a unique way to add laughter, a little suspense and a whole lot of speed to our Game Night.

Whether played with two or at a party with four, there is fun to be had when this game is involved! World Series of Yahtzee retails for $19.99 and can be purchased directly from Hasbro, on Amazon, in stores near you and more. You can also keep up with all things Game Night by connecting with Hasbro on Facebook and Twitter.

And, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon be having a rolling good time in their home as well, because...

One lucky person will win World Series of Yahtzee from Hasbro!
