[Daily Mail]  An enraged husband snapped and tried to strangle his wife in a heated disagreement over a dice game. Police in Florida believe the man tried to strangle her because – when it came to Yahtzee – they weren’t two of a kind. Ian Wood, from East Naples, Collier County, Florida, has been accused of flying into a rage over the game of dice and choking his wife. The 50-year-old was arrested at home after his wife called 911. According to the Naples Daily News, she told officers that Wood pushed her to the ground. She said he then placed his hand over her mouth and pushed his knee into her back while telling her to stop screaming. Wood allegedly then rolled her over, placed his hands around her throat and began choking her. She told authorities she tried to leave their home to cool down – knowing the game had got out of hand – but that her husband got angry again. When police quizzed Wood he said his wife had fallen in the hallway and that he did not hit her. Wood is charged with domestic battery, kidnapping/false imprisonment of an adult, resisting law enforcement officer without violence, and obstructing someone from using the 911 service.

I dont really even understand how Yahtzee works. I think I’ve played it once in my life. But as we’ve seen in the past it gets pretty intense. Prime example are those bros that killed their mom over a game on Christmas day. I can kind of relate though, with my new found scrabble addiction. There are times when I’m playing Words with Friends with 610 and he starts dropping words likejole, teg, whid, koan and bidi as if he has any idea what they mean. Makes me want to drop my phone in the shitter (which is where I do most of my Words playing). No doubt if we were playing the traditional board game I’d want to push him to the ground, put my hand over his mouth and my knee on his back, tell him to stop screaming and choke him just like Ian here. Plus he’s probably got all that pent up frustration that any guy has with his lady to add on top of her Yahtzee cheating. It’s enough to drive any man to the brink of attempted murder. So, I’m not saying Ian is right here, but I get where he’s coming from.
