There's no other feeling quite like it...when you roll those dice and get a Yahtzee! Unfamiliar with the classic parlor game? In a nutshell, players try to roll classic dice combinations like a Full House, 4-of-a-kind, a Large Straight and more, in order to rack up the most points. But it's a vexing combination of luck and strategy that determines the winner. Players get plenty of counting and pattern practice in the midst of all the action, and it's possible to play solo or with an unlimited gaggle of friends. If you don't already have this at home, run out and snag a copy of this timeless classic. It will be one of the best $10 you'll ever spend. (Hasbro, $9.75)
