Roll, bitches

Jason said...

Rolled, bitch

Jason said...

A 6 and a 5. Come on 4 to get us closer to the straight...

Josh S. said...

I get to play!

Spanky said...

Give me a six. Baby needs some shoes.

Jason said...

I'm pretty good at this game. 6-5-4 for my max rolls.

Mr. Customer said...

6-5-4-2-4 plus...

Spanky said...

Bam Bitch

Mr. Customer said...

6-5-4-2-4-4...

Josh S. said...

Whu?

Jason said...

Readers: 6-5-4-2-4-2-4-4
Sons: 5

Jason said...

Damn elusive 3

Josh S. said...

That's a pretty low-scoring Full House. Maybe 4-of-a-kind with 4s?

Jason said...

Full house is 25 points regardless of rolls, right?

Josh S. said...

Oh yeah. They're pretty common, though. I think we're good either way.

Spanky said...

Looks like 25

Jason said...

I'm not opposed to taking the 4s category for 16 points which at least matches the Sons.

Mr. Customer said...

I'd say go with the 4's, but full house would be fine, too.

Mr. Customer said...

Alright, Mr. C's strategy thoughts coming up.

I don't think we'll have much trouble rolling a full house with 8 die every turn. I say go for the fours, which will buy us a little forgiveness in the top bracket if we get stuck looking for a specific category late in the game. (average for the bonus is 3 of each)

Josh S. said...

So, we keep the 4s and a 6?

Mr. Customer said...

By which, I endorse taking all the fours. The fifth die is moot.

Josh S. said...

We didn't roll a moot.

Josh S. said...

EK, your score sheet has a few issues. You have "Count and add all the ones" for every number in the top half. Also, "Sixes" is "Sizes."

Josh S. said...

^"only ones", not "all the ones". Sorry.

Josh S. said...

I guess 22 is too low of a score for 4-of-a-kind.

Yeah, Fours it is.

Mr. Customer said...

Yeah, we still have a lot of options open for 4x. using the fours buys us what amounts to another couple of chance rolls for the 1s and 2s

Josh S. said...

I'm trying to imagine an actual Yahtzee game with this much strategy discussion.

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh

This is normal for my house.

We've got issues.

Steve Dittmore said...

Go for the 4s.

This is way more fun than puzzles, plus I don't feel so dumb.

Eric Karros said...

roll

Eric Karros said...

Thanks for the headsup on scoresheet errors. Copy and paste is a blessing and a curse.

Eric Karros said...

5 5 2 for the Sons...

Mr. Customer said...

5-5-2-3

MR. F said...

I missed my chance to roll, didn't I?

Mr. Customer said...

Alas.

Spanky said...

Awwwww. None of the Sons wants to play with EK.

*laughs*

Eric Karros said...

Yeah I'm on my own here. Dozens of readers vs EK. Bring it, bitches!

Eric Karros said...

5-5-2-3-6

Eric Karros said...

5-5-2-3-6-2

Eric Karros said...

5-5-2-3-6-2-2...4?

Eric Karros said...

No, damn, a 6. Nostradamus I'm not.

5-5-2-3-6-2-2-6. Crapola. Full House, two's, or three-of-a-kind? Let's see...def not 3oaK, as the total sucks. With two's I'm still on par for the Upper Half bonus, sort of a default play. Full House, as someone mentioned, is pretty easy to get in this game, but why waste it here. I'm thinkin' two's. Not gaining much, but not foregoing much.

Two's it is.
