Introducing Buzzy's Yahtzee

Imagine if you will the coffee shop equivalent to Yahtzee. If you are unfamiliar with Yahtzee see exhibit a. In this amazing new coffee infused version, in order to fulfill your 1 you have to get a person to get 1 lg Captain Buzzy's Blend. Not too difficult but fear not, challenges lie ahead. So to fulfill the 2 you have to get two consecutive customers to order the exact same thing. The same goes for 3 and 4. It's not every often that 5 people in a row order the same thing so 5 would probably be a Yahtzee. Yahtzee!

Now the tricky part is when you need to get a full house. Claire and I are still working out the details but we imagine for full houses you'd have to get two people to order 2 of the same thing then three of something.

However, none of this has been tested for feasibility, and I have a feeling we've made it a bit too hard considering most of the regulars don't order similar things in the same sizes. Maybe we could have bonus points for guessing what the regulars are going to have before they order.

As far as winning goes you'd play against your other co-workers, but then again it could be like Hoopla (see exhibit b) where everyone would play as a team. You'd add up scores at the end of the shift and rejoice at the pure joy of the Yahtzee fun. We still have to make up a score sheet and figure out most to the rules but generally speaking I foresee much fun to be had with this.

Mostly, this whole thing is an excuse for me to run around Buzzy's screaming Yahtzee.
