M&M’s Musings

We have an M&M’s-filled candy machine at work and we wondered:

  • What do you call it when you get exactly 6 M&M’s in a single turn of the dispenser, one of each color?  M&M Yahtzee?  Full House?
  • And how about when you get more than 6 M&M’s in a single turn of the dispenser, with at least one of each color?

Suggestions?  Please leave a comment!

PS: the 6 M&M’s colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue and brown.  See for yourself.

  1. We decided to call “exactly 6, one of each color” a “Yahtzee.”

    “Yahtzee plus N” is when you get N > 6, with at least one of each color. Example: if you get 8 M&M’s, with at least one of each color you got a “Yahtzee plus 2.”
