The Ultimate Full House Dis?December 5, 2011
Hi rollers, Rick here. I just had to share with you what happened the other night when Lou and I and a few other friends were throwing a game. I also just got done watching an episode of True Blood and a scene from it made me think of what had happened. It was the episode where Godric kills himself and right before he does he says to Sookie, “I’ve lived over 2000 years and I can still be surprised.”
Well I certainly haven’t lived over 2000 years but I have seen my share of Yahtzee games. And while playing over at Lou’s place I repeatedly “Dissed the Fully” in order to give myself a chance at obtaining loftier goals. Time and time again I found myself rolling a pair and a three of a kind and time and time again I would politely decline the 25 points it offered me. I knew full well that the Yahtzee odds favored me rolling many more Fullys. By now the excitement was really building up, as my fellow rollers were flabbergasted by my style of play yet they couldn’t deny that I had obtained the game’s namesake-Yahtzee.
On my first roll of my last turn, with only my Full House open, I rolled a couple of twos along with a mish-mash of other numbers. I naturally kept the twos and rolled the other three dice. What would appear but three threes, giving myself yet another Full House and securing the 25 points to end a more than fine overall score. Well, think again my friends, because I did what some think of as unthinkable, too incomprehensible to even be able to ponder such a tactic. In a move of what some consider immense bravado, I picked up the two twos and “went for broke”, trying for a Yahtzee Bonus! Lo and behold what would come tumbling out of the can but two three’s!
I proudly put a check mark in the Yahtzee Bonus section denoting 100 points as well as scoring 25 points for my Full House, using my Yahtzee Bonus as a Joker for that category. All this was done amidst cries of “unbelievable!” and “I’ve never seen anything like it in all my days!”
I must admit, neither have I and I quite possibly may never live to see it again.
