Many a Sunday evening is spent playing board games in my house, with a particular trend towards Yahtzee. This 5 dice game is more about luck than skill, but it does teach my little one maths. But our old game board is looking a little worn so I think it is time to upgrade to one of these amazing themed sets…
Top 10 Strange and Unusual Yahtzee Games
10 – Zelda
What? A Nintendo fan-boy like me putting a Zelda collectors edition Yahtzee set at number 10? Well yeah, because for what its worth I love it for what it is and the theme (that treasure chest dice shaker is kind of cool) but I just think the whole thing look…cheap!
9 – Glee
While you will never be able to prove that I liked the show or watched every episode I am happy to admit that I know what it is about. That slushy dice shaker alone is enough to make me want to break out in a song and dance!
8 – Dalek
Any Dr Who related merchandise is always going to make me want it, but this collectors edition with a Dalek dice shaker has been exterminated in my mind by the other Dr Who collectors edition Yahtzee set. (see number 2)
7 – The Muppets
It seems they try to revive the Muppets franchise almost every year, so what better way to relive those crazy days of puppet animals than with this Yahtzee set which features a Kermit dice shaker and dice that are themed with the shows main characters.
6 – Harley Davidson
I’m not sure if I like it or not, but for sheer levels of unusual and weirdness this Harley Davidson Yahtzee set gets included. Would Harley Davidson fans really play Yahtzee? Well maybe they would if they had this set.
5 – Pacman
This classic character hasn’t really moved on since his 8-Bit days glory, so the shape of the dice shaker will be familiar to all video gamers. But it is those cool dice that I really liked about this set.
4 – Firefly
Now this is what my blog is all about. Cool, unusual and as nerdy and nerdy will come. This Firefly Serenity edition Yahtzee is a must for any fan of the show who still can’t believe they cancelled it.
3 – Super Mario
Yahtzee is the perfect board game for Nintendo to back. It helps develop maths in children and is fun for all the family. Sounds like every Nintendo game ever made!
2 – Dr Who
This is the 2nd of the Dr Who collectors edition (See number 8) but I think it is by far the better out of the two, the TARDIS is the perfect shape for a dice shaker and the dice are the better styled. Any Whovian would love to get this as a gift.
1 – The Walking Dead
With a zombie shaking cup and a blood splattered dice this Walking Dead collectors edition of the game is sure to go down well with any fan of the show, and not it is on a break you can roll those dice until it comes back on!
