Before two Canadians with nothing better to do on their luxury yacht snatched up the idea and called it “Yahtzee” there was Cacho from Bolivia and Peru.
Grab five dice and go for it. It's a good game to travel with because so little equipment is needed (dice, your two leather Cochabamba Dice Cups a pencil and some paper.
Cacho goes faster that Yatzee because there are fewer scoring combinations, and it is easier to understand where you stand relative to other players as the game progresses.
The scoring is done on a Tic tac toe hatch and, unlike Yahtzee, you can always come from behind, roll a "Grande de mano" and win the game!
With two dice cups you can play in teams, pairs or play for yourself!
Games from Everywhere is all about bringing the game back to the country that gave it to the rest of us.
