I love a good Yahtzee game and have become more involved than I care to admit with the tournaments and opportunities to win "custom" dice, etc. Sister Nori and I have confessed to spending real money for pretend prizes....seriously, sometimes you need those extra rolls to make it to a whole new level. But I digress.
Apparently, unbeknownst to me, Yahtzee with Friends is just a clever guise for people, single and married, to try and chat a person up while the game is going on. It all goes back to real life for me. I may smile at a stranger, make solid eye contact, even exchange pleasantries, but if I am invited to play a game of Yahtzee, truly that is all I am looking for.
It all starts innocently enough (sometimes!). My Yahtzee partner might say "good game". Okay. I don't want to be rude. I try to acknowledge that. Generally not in words because I don't like to encourage anyone, but everyone knows my love of emoticons. That might elicit a "smiley face" or a "thumbs up". And sometimes it ends right there. We continue playing with no more "chat" between us.
But how about the ones I get that start out admiring my photo? Believe me, it's nothing to win any awards. And then the hard hitting questions. You married? Where u at? (real life quote). Thinking I was nipping one particularly aggressive player in the bud (so to speak) I answered yes to the married question. He doesn't stop there.
Hence the comparison to the Ashley Madison website. I learned of it when it recently went public with much bad press. My question to you is - could the Yahtzee with Friends be a clever guise to allow the continued activities of the cheaters...all while they may enjoy a game of dice?

One could argue it is easier to lie when hiding behind a computer screen. I get that. But I JUST WANT TO WIN THE HIGHEST REWARDS AT YAHTZEE. To do that, you have to expand your games beyond your family. Hence the name, Yahtzee with Friends,
I even have one Yahtzee stalker. He keeps changing his name but then tells me, Hey- it's me again. DEAR LORD. For the record, I have NEVER responded to him,
I don't know everything but this much I know for sure - I love a quick game of Yahtzee. That is a game with six dice which allows three rolls per turn. There are 13 turns per game. If "Yahtzee" is code for anything else, COUNT ME OUT.
Until next time,
