Yahtzee. Game summary, how to play (also links to online and offline Yahtzee)

Yahtzee is a great game to play with family or friends. While the luck of the roll of the dice plays a big part in the game, there is also a lot of strategy involved that can help you win more often than not.

The game was invented by a wealthy Canadian couple to play aboard their yacht. In 1956, the couple approached Mr. Edwin S. Lowe who bought the rights and called the game Yahtzee. Today, more than 50 million Yahtzee games are sold annually. An estimated 100 million people play Yahtzee on a regular basis.

How to play Yahtzee:
Yahtzee is designed for two players. There are 13 turns in each game. Each player can roll up to 3 times per turn. The player can choose which dice to be rolled again.

There are 13 scoring methods:

  1. add 1's: add up all the one's.
  2. add 2's: add up all the two's.
  3. add 3's: add up all the three's.
  4. add 4's: add up all the four's.
  5. add 5's: add up all the five's.
  6. add 6's: add up all the six's.
  7. 3 of a Kind: reward 20 if there are 3 dice of the same value.
  8. 4 of a Kind: reward 35 if there are 4 dice of the same value.
  9. Full House: reward 25 if there are 3 of a kind and 2 of a kind.
  10. Small Straight: reward 30 if there are 4 in a row.
  11. Large Straight: reward 40 if there are 5 in a row.
  12. Yahtzee: reward 50 if all dice are of the same value.
  13. Chance: add up all values.

Each player must use up all methods in each game (13 turns).
Bonus: If the small straight are composed of the same color, (1,2,3,4 are all magenta or 3,4,5,6 are all yellow) an additional 50 points would be added. If the large straight are composed of the same color, an additional 75 points would be added.
