You sunk my Yahtzee

Last month we went cross-border shopping. In Target, I stumbled across the Super Mario Yahtzee game on clearance. Of course we bought it. We love Mario and the kid thinks he is the best plumber ever too! It is awesome! I especially love the coin box.

Needless to say there has been some family gaming going on at our house. The best part is that Yahtzee helps teach the kid math! And since she certainly isn't learning addition or subtraction (let alone multiplication) in her public school this can only be a good thing. Although her teacher assures me that they're going to start covering basic math soon. But, let's face it. Of course that wasn't going to cut it for us. After all, if the kid is reading at a 4th or 5th grade level we can't have her only able to do grade 1 math. Right? Actually she loves it and keeps asking for worksheets so I guess we aren't traumatizing her too much. And she gets to play Yahtzee so...
