USAopoly’s Yahtzee: The Legend of Zelda releasing in late Spring


With board game classic Monopoly having already been treated to The Legend of Zelda Collector’s Edition last year, USAopoly have revealed that they will shortly extend the license to Yahtzee.

Scheduled to arrive at retail in late spring, the similarly named Yahtzee: The Legend of Zelda Collector’s Edition will contain a treasure chest dice cup as well as five, rupee-coloured dice.

For those that haven’t played before, Yahtzee is a game in which players take turns to roll five dice in the hope of making specific combinations to score points. You can roll three times per turn to better your score, but this can ultimately risk you losing points as well.

USAopoly will also release two-player card game TAXDEX: Super Mario this winter, which marketing manager Cindy Saylor described to ICv2 as follows: “This is the only Super Mario card game out there. It’s very similar to playing War, but it has a battle marker that allows you to suddenly change the game dynamics from ‘win with a high card’ to ‘win with a low card.”
