My kids love being outside as much as possible and we enjoy camping when ever we can, to make the best of being outdoors we do an assortment of activities, boating, hiking, etc but we also like playing outdoor games so I was very excited to be receiving a Yardzee lawn game set from 2/4 Foxy Designs. Yardzee is a extra large dice game that is stored inside of a bucket.
This set of Yardzee is inspired by the classic game of Yahtzee and is played the same way, not only can you play Yardzee but there is also a score card and rules for a game called Farkle which I've never played. Each dice is created by cutting down a 2x4 piece of wood, everything is sanded and the edges are rounded off. The circles for the numbers are burned onto the dice then it is coated in two coats of poly to protect the wood and the numbers from the elements.
The dice are big they measure 3.5" x 3.5" so you won't be able to roll them by hand, instead you can use the bucket to shake them up and then roll them out into the yard. I suggest using a surface that is mostly flat to help the dice be able to roll and land properly. The bucket also contains laminated instructions for both games, a dry erase marker and a laminated score card for each game, I love the it is laminated because it means I can use it over and over again without wasting paper. Since each set is handmade no two sets will be exactly alike since all of the wood used will vary from the next section of wood used which means you will get a completely unique game set. Because everything is sanded and coated in poly there is no chance you'll get any splinters and it helps prevent the wood from drying out and cracking. The bucket has a handle on it which makes this game easy to transport, and it doesn't take up a ton of room to store it on the porch, in the garage or to take in the car which is nice because we need all the room we can get when we go camping since my car doesn't have a ton of trunk space.
We had a lot of fun playing this game, the smaller kids needed a little help with the bucket but they didn't seem to mind because they were having a great time. This is perfect for camping, BBQ's or just a random game of Yardzee in the backyard since it is great year round. Each set sells for $60 and the buckets come in a variety of colors along with a selection of colors for the wording vinyl, plus they offer customization on the buckets so you can get your family name, business name, etc added onto the bucket.
