Happy 146th Birthday
How does your family celebrate Canada’s Birthday?
Canada Day is lots of fun for our family. We start off by sporting new Canadian t-shirt to show off our Canadian pride. We invite friends and family over to celebrate the day with a big BBQ. After our bellies are full of hamburgers, hot dogs, fresh fruit and German potato salad, the adults retire to the gazebo while the children run off all the sugar and excitement of the day on swing set. To entertain us while waiting for the sun to set, the adults usually break into a board game or two before capping the evening off with sparklers and fireworks.
World Series of Yahtzee!
This year I’m excited to share a new take on a classic game! Get your competitive spirits revving because we are about to embark on Hasbro World Series of Yahtzee! This is not your grandmother’s Hasbro yahtzee game. It involves dice, cards and the need for speed. Each player is given 5 dice and there are eight dice combination cards displayed on the board. The object is to continually roll the dice and be the first person to achieve a match to one of those cards. Once you do you hit the buzzer and the musical countdown begins! The other players have 5 seconds to achieve a match to one of the displayed cards and hit their buzzer before time runs out. Then its time to tally the points in sequential collection of the cards begins based on the order that the buzzer was hit. If you didn’t hit the buzzer in time or someone take your card before your turn your busted! No points for you. The winner is the person with the most points at the end of 5 rounds.
Rolling with the new dice in town
DH and I decided to break out this game one warm Saturday night in the gazebo to see if would be fun to play with a group of people. Let me just say its INTENSE! You need to be quick, in control and not laughing! There were many giggles and choice words as the dice flew across the table! I loved the thrill of trying to beat the buzzer and the squeal of the Rock and Roll to start each round! It was hard not to have a great time. I’m so excited to try this game out with my friend on Canada Day! I know they will love it as much as we do!
World Series of Yahtzee is recommended for kids 8+ and is available now at your favorite retailers (Approximate retail price is $19.99).
