Yahtzee: Ghostbusters Slimer Collector's Edition Review (USAopoly)

Yahtzee: Ghostbusters Slimer Collector's Edition
What It Is

America's No. 1 dice game, Yahtzee has been slimed! This Ghostbusters-themed game has you shaking the dice in a collectible translucent Slimer cup. As you try to roll classic dice combinations like a full house or large straight, you'll notice you're using five custom slime green dice that feature the Ghostbusters' equipment on specific numbers (one is the Ecto-1 vehicle, two is a proton pack, three is the ghost trap, four is a PKE meter, five is goggles, and six of course, is the Ghostbusters logo). 

Just like in traditional Yahtzee, players may roll the dice up to three times per turn in an attempt to get the highest scoring combination for one of 13 categories. Players score a Yahtzee when rolling five of a kind. The first Yahtzee is worth 50 points. Any additional Yahtzee rolled after that from the same player, receives a 100 point bonus. Once you've got your combinations, record them on the custom score pad. Roll five Proton Packs for a Yahtzee with an inter-dimensional twist.
