Well done Andrew

Huge congratulations to eight-year-old Andrew who managed a one-roll Yahtzee in just NINE rolls.

Unfortunately it wasn't filmed because everyone thought it would take him an eternity (remembering the odds of five matching dice are 1 in 1296).

Not only a Yahtzee, but my personal favourite of five sixes (it's 1 in 11,664 if you specify the number!!!!)

FYI Andrew: My Christmas cracker this year contained three dice and I did not allow myself to eat dinner until I rolled three matching numbers… It took me about 30 rolls but I also managed matching sixes!)

Here's the Numberphile video which started the die rolling:

And here are some viewer Yahtzees (and some classic reactions).
