A very popular dice game from France much like our Yahtzee but with a key twist in the rules which, we think, fans will find very compelling. Includes 5 very handsome playing dice packed in a cylinder-shaped container with a screw on cap - all expertly turned from beautiful French boxwood, one of the worlds great woods for ornamental turning, with a dense grain, plenty of figure and rich patina. (The boxwood dice especially have an old world" feel to them that we really like.) The container dimensions are 4-1/4" x 1" diameter. Easy to keep in your pocket or carry on a trip with the family. The Game of Yam makes a wonderful and unexpected stocking stuffer

Dice games are popular in every culture of the world, many of which can be played with this set. Or use your imagination and play by your own rules. Guaranteed to be more fun than what's playing on the back of the headrest.

  • Outstanding Quality and Beauty

    BB, 3/3/2016 Probably the finest dice I have ever thrown! They are amazing because they are so light. Not normally a sign of good dice. I have bought one of these for all of my friends and family that enjoy playing dice games (not just the one that is explained with the purchase of the dice). However, I have also purchased and extra set specifically for adding an extra die to the set of five so that everyone that I gave them to got six dice instead of just five, there is plenty of room in the case for the extra die. The extra cylinder will be covered in Spanish hitching and used as my needle case for rope work so it was no hardship for me to do this. The threads on these cases are excellent as well. I live in hot, humid and sticky Tennessee and I have not had to apply beeswax or anything else to keep these threads turning smoothly. I can't say enough good things about this dice set in case you hadn't noticed, but do yourself a favor and get a set of your own to brag about. Everyone that has used my set has wanted a set of their own and if you are reading this review, you will too:)
  • Totally worth the price

    Jeffrey, 3/3/2016 Had my eye on this for awhile, but whenever I went to order, they were out of stock. Now I can see why...absolutely beautiful workmanship! Better then I'd hoped!

  • Great Find

    Lexington, 6/23/2013 All you need to play any number of dice games, including Yahtzee. Durable boxwood is the same material used to make the handle of the celebrated Opinel knife. You know this product is handmade because there are subtle cosmetic differences in the dice, but the weight and dimensions are consistent. The turned storage tube is just large enough for the dice and has a screw down top. I love products like this because of their timeless quality. It was made recently but it could just as easily have been 100, 500 or 1000 years ago. Difference is that even 100 years ago this would have been a prize possession to a sailor, mason, or teamster who would have had to give up 1, 2 or even more days of wages to acquire it. You can have it for a fraction of that, but without compromising any of the quality. In my book that makes it the very definition of a bargain.
