Dice Game with Sound

Posted Sat, 04/22/17

My mother and I played the board game Yahtzee for many years until Alzheimer's robbed her of the ability. The other day I found old game software in a box, which was Hoyle's 2012 edition of board and puzzle games.

Included was "Yacht," Hoyle's version of Yahtzee. You can create your own face and voice, and then select opponents from a large group of characters who interact verbally. My favorites are Elayne (tough-talking lady with a Brooklyn accent), Jasper (soft-spoken but irritable man from Jamaica), and Captain Scurvy (a parrot who talks like a pissy pirate).

The game is fun, and brings back many fond memories.
