Yahtzee for Telehealth

Yahtzee isn’t a game I use often in therapy, but it can be helpful for frustration tolerance, focus, and problem solving. It can be fun for groups working on taking turns as well.

There are many options for playing Yahtzee online, but this website has a free dice set. Pull up the site, share your screen, and take turns rolling. The dice on the site make it easy to play but also allow you to give your client extra rolls if you want to let them change the rules to the game or if you are taking a non-directive approach in the session.

I also found a site that has a PDF of royalty-free score sheets, which you can print. Of course, printables are not always ideal when you are doing telehealth, so a fillable version of the PDF can be downloaded here:

You can never have too many options for telehealth activities, and there are endless games available online if you know where to look.
