The Yacht Dice Game Cooperative Version
Most games tend to be competetive. Here's a version of the Yacht Dice Game that is both competetive and cooperative.
- You need two sets of five (alternately, six) six-sided dice, preferably different colors.
- You play with the person to your right. The person whose turn it is is the primary player, and the person to their left is the secondary player.
- The person who gets the first roll (Player A) rolls their dice, and the person to their left (Player B) rolls their dice.
- If playing with six dice (useful for younger players), each player picks one die to discard.
- Player A and Player B work cooperatively to each build the best possible set of dice for their needs. They can do this one of two ways:
- Nebraska Rules: Players can trade dice on a one-to-one basis.
- Missouri Rules: Players put all the dice in a pile and cooperatively build their two hands.
- Player A gets the full score for their hand, and half Player B's score.
- Player B get the full score for their hand.
- Play then moves to Player B, who will work with Player C to build two good hands.
- Except for the first and last plays of the game, everyone will get three scores in quick succession: ** The full score for your hand when you are the secondary player. ** Half the score of the person to your left when you are the primary player, plus the full score for your own hand.
- This does work best when you have at least four people. Six are preferable.
