Description of Yahtzee

BSEditor: “Let’s Play the yacht game!” friends of a wealthy Canadian couple used to declare whenever coming aboard the pair’s luxury vessel. The popularity of “the yacht game” eventually led to entrepreneur Edwin Lowe selling sets of it during the late 1950s, and today we know it as Yahtzee. Now you can play it in a format that would have surely driven that long-ago couple’s friends green with envy.

Yahtzee seems simple at first: merely roll five dice three times and put together the best combination possible. But after each roll, you must decide which dice to keep and which to roll Again, in the hope of putting together a combination that scores the most points. The format is similar to poker, allowing you to assemble three-of-a-kind, four-of-a-kind, a full house (a set of three and a set of two), and other combinations. Five-of-a-kind is known as a Yahtzee, and it earns 50 points, the highest possible.

Strategy comes into play, however, as you decide what type of combination to Go for during each set of three rolls. (You can stop after one or two rolls if you already have the combination you want.) You must FIT the final result into one of the available combinations, and each combination can only be used once. For example, if you have three fours set aside after two rolls and you’ve already put together three-of-a-kind and a full house, then you’ll need two fours on the last roll to pull off a Yahtzee. If you can’t Do It, you won’t earn any points for that round.
