Fast, and portable fun for anyone who can roll dice!
Yamslam is a fast and furious dice game where you try to grab chips before your opponents! It is a very unique twist on a classic dice game (another Y game) but plays faster and there is no need to write down anything (which was helpful when playing on the plane). It is exciting and challenging to play this game with adults, but it can be fun to include the kids, who just loved grabbing the chips. This game is extremely well built for the price: all solid components (chips are heavy, dice have a resin feel) and the tin box is all covered with padded felt! It is our family's favorite game

Definitely not Yahtzee
No, it's not Yahtzee. On the other hand, yes, it's a lot like Yahtzee. You roll five dice. You get three rolls during which you can re-roll all or any of the dice. You want to get maybe two pairs, or even better, three-of-a-kind, or better yet a small straight, and then there's a flush, which you can't get in that other game, which is better yet, and then there's a full house, and four-of-a-kind, or even better a full house, and your large straight, and, of course, your all-dice-of-the-same-number Yamslam, which makes you yell "Yamslam," take any chip you want, and an extra turn. And what all of this Yahtzee-likeness does is make Yamslam easier to learn. But, no, it's not Yahtzee. There are chips, for example, which you don't get in that other game - four for each of the possible winning combinations. Each chip is worth more points, depending on probabilities. When you succeed, you collect a chip, making scoring for that particular combination one chip less likely. When there are no chips, that combination can no longer score. Then there's the possibility that you might gather one or more of each of the seven kinds of chip, for which you score more points, or that you might get six out of the seven, or all of a particular kind of chip, or take the last remaining chip - in which case you score yet more. And then there's the "flush" possibility. The odd numbers on the dice are one color, the even another. You score a flush (if you want it) when all the dice are the same color. Put all these together and you have something that is clearly not Yahtzee. Fewer combinations, a faster game, more possibilities for scoring, all stored in a metal tin that contains the game with efficiency and grace. Place the chips in their well-marked holders, leave the dice on the pleasingly-cushioned felt-lined bottom, close the lid, and no matter how hard you shake the set, everything stays in place. Forget the rules? All the score possibilities are conveniently described on the perimeter of the box. Designed by Thierry Denoual (who also designed the Gobblet games), Yamslam is a gift of light-hearted, undemanding fun for anyone in the family who is old enough to add. And then there are variations to try, including at least one for those times when you just need to be by yourself. Yahtzee? Most definitely not. Fun? Majorly!

Like Yahtzee - but different
I played this game with a group of friends. It's similar to Yahtzee, but there's stuff at the end of the game to make it different, in terms of scoring. The chips keep score, so there's no writing involved. If you get one each of six or all seven-point chips, you score bonus points. You also get a 20-point bonus for taking the last chip available. That aspect made the difference in one game I played. A fun game that moves along quickly, kids, adults, and grandma can play.

Awesome game!
I ordered this game from areyougame.com based on recommendations of other games I had purchased. I first liked the look of the tin box and we love to play Yahtzee with my wife. We were pleasantly surprised when we received the game, that looks like a portable casino in a tin! The game is a blast, plays a little bit like Yathzee with the excitment of grabbing chips before your opponents. We play four players in teams of two and it works really well. Highly recommended.
