No Prize For Mediocrity

Tonight my wonderful hubby and I went to the Annual Tampas Yatzee Tournament, which really needs to be held more than once a year. It is so much fun. Several friends getting together to talk, play Yatzee, talk, snack, talk, and generally hang out. There are prizes too. First, second and third place trophies based on a three game highest total, a t-shirt for the most "yatzees" rolled in one night, and fuzzy dice for the lowest score of the night.

I was determined to win something this year. Looking back through the records (yes, they keep records,) I placed very middle 2 years ago and last year was next to last (11th place.) Being next to last you get nothing. You have to be last to get the dice. I wanted a trophy this year. Well, the "Grand Champion" of last year retained her title this year. Kim, the "High Roller," got second and the shirt. Paul got third and yours truely got 4th.

What do you get for 4th? Nothing. Nada. Zip. This once again proves there is no prize for mediocrity. It didn't matter if I was 11th or 4th, it was the same. However, I rose over 120 points from last year to this year. If I improve half so much next year, I am so taking that first place trophy! No more mediocrity!

I taught my daughter to play yahtzee the other night. She beat me handily. Beginners luck.
