## Yahtzee Rules
## Basic rules
There are 13 rounds in a game of Yahtzee. In each turn, a player can roll his dice up to 3 times in order to get the desired combination. On the first two rolls, the player has to roll all five of the dice at once. On the third roll, the player can roll any number of dice he wants to, including none or all of them, trying to get a good combination. ## Yahtzee scoring
There are two sections in a Yahtzee scorecard: the upper section and the lower section. In the upper section, there are six boxes that represent the six face values of a die. For these six boxes, the player must enter only the sum of the dice with the corresponding face value. If the player scores a total of 63 or more in the upper section, he gets a bonus of 35 points at the end of the game. - 3 of a kind: If the dice include 3 or more of the same number. Unlike in the upper section where only the dice of one number are summed, here the total of all five dice is used.
- 4 of a kind: If the dice include 4 or more of the same number.
- Full House: If the dice show 3 of one number and 2 of another.
- Small Straight: If the dice show a sequence of 4 continuous numbers.
- Large Straight: If the dice show a sequence of 5 continuous numbers.
- Chance: The player can score in this box with any combination. The score is the total of all five dice.
- Yahtzee: If the dice show 5 of the same number. The score is a standard of 50 points.
- Yahtzee Bonus: If a player gets extremely lucky and rolls his second Yahtzee and his Yahtzee box already has 50 points due to the previous one he scored, he gets a bonus of 100 points.
Regarding the Yahtzee bonus - the same rule doesn't apply when a player rolls a Yahtzee and his Yahtzee box is already filled with a zero. In either case, the "joker rules" must be used. That is, if possible the player must fill the upper section box corresponding to the number rolled. But if that box is full, he must fill in any empty box in the lower section. |
