Does Mark Stoops actually play Yahtzee? “Absolutely”


Quotes are pouring in from the annual Governor’s Cup luncheon in Louisville. Drew will have a full recap for you in just a little bit, but here’s a teaser to tide you over:

When asked if he actually plays the game Yahtzee, which the staff uses as a code word for a commitment, Mark Stoops said “Absolutely we play Yahtzee. I’m pretty good, but Coach Marrow is probably the best.”

Yes he is.

    For years, my wife and I played Yahtzee on camping trips. It’s a great game for the time between cleaning up after dinner and Lights Out. The rational strategy is to ditch unlikely events — throwing a Yahtzee — and squirrel away more likely expectations to fulfill. Instead, I would always go for the big win and would, regularly, win by throwing a Yahtzee on the final round. Eventually, the odds caught up and our cumulative scores evened out.

    The rational thing to do in a pure game is to always go for the big win: there’s no consequence to losing. The less pure the game is — the more the outcome carries forward into the rest of life — the more rational your game strategy should be.
