Yahtzee 8 June 2014

I’ve been farming in this tractor. When I was working the other day, this antelope decided the edge of the field where I was farming was a good place to rest. He stayed there most of the day. You can spot him at the edge of the field about a third of the way from the left. Once storms moved in, the tractor was grounded until it dries out some. Today was especially stormy and rainy and we are thankful for the moisture! So, I was thinking about my favorite board game- Yahtzee. I love the way the dice sound when you shake them in the cup, and that you get three chances to roll the best set of numbers. I love the one where you can just add up the total of all your dice if you don’t roll anything else worth counting on the score sheet. Concentrating on the shake and chanting, “Yahtzee, Yahtzee, Yahtzee,” over and over sometimes produces the illusive five-dice coming up with the same number. Sometimes not. It can be loud, fairly fast-paced so it doesn’t take all night to play it AND you never go to jail or to the poor house. Plus, it’s math and what’s not fun about that?
