You do ## A yahtzee review of scoring and yahtzee gameplay.A game of Yahtzee uses five To place your score in the online version you click on the colored bar, that is highlighted next to the pattern you want to score. In a modification attempt, you may choose any set of keepers, ranging from all dice to none. Keeping all dice boils down to skipping the modification attempt. The three modification attempts are independent. That is, there is no restriction on the second set of keepers, e.g. it need not be a superset of the first set.
## ScoringOnce you have the dice face combination you want to score, you score the roll in one of the 13 categories. You do this by clicking on one of the radio buttons in either the Upper Scores or Lower
Scores box. Once a category has been scored, it is closed out
for the rest of the game; you cannot change a category's score once
it's been set. Each category defines its own scoring rules, as
described below. ## Upper ScoresIn the upper scores, you total only the specified die face. So if you roll: and score in the Threes category, your total for that entry
would be 9. This same roll would yield zero points if you scored it in the
Aces (Ones), Twos, or Fives category, four points
if you scored it in the Fours category, or six points if you
scored it in the Sixes category.
When the game is over, if you score 63 or more upper points (an
average of 3 die faces per category), you will get an
## Lower ScoresIn the lower scores, you score either a set amount (defined by the category), or zero if you don't satisfy the category requirements. ## 3 and 4 of a KindFor 3 of a Kind, you must have at least three of the same die
faces. If so, you total all the die faces and score that total.
Similarly for 4 of a Kind, except that you must have 4 of the
5 die faces the same. So for example, if you rolled:you would receive 20 points for 3 of a Kind, but zero points for 4 of a Kind.
## StraightsLike in poker, a straight is a sequence of consecutive
die faces; a small straight is 4 consecutive faces, and a large
straight is 5 consecutive faces. Small straights score 30 points and
large straights score 40 points. Thus, if you rolled:you could score either a small straight or a large straight, since this roll satisfies both.
## Full HouseAgain as in poker, a Full House is a roll where you have
both a 3 of a kind, and a pair. Full houses score 25 points.
## YahtzeeA Yahtzee is a 5 of a Kind (i.e. all the die faces are the
same), and it scores 50 points. If you roll more than one
Yahtzee in a single game, you will earn a 100 point bonus for
each additional Yahtzee roll, provided that you have already
scored a 50 in the Yahtzee category. If you have not scored
in the Yahtzee category, you will not receive a bonus. If
you have scored a zero in the Yahtzee category, you cannot
receive any bonuses during the current game.
You can also use subsequent - You have scored a zero or 50 in the
*Yahtzee*category. - You have filled the corresponding category in the upper scores
section. For example, if you have rolled:
the*Fives*category must also be filled.
Yahtzee as a joker to
fill in any lower scores category. You score the category as normal.
Thus for the Small Straight, Large Straight, and
Full House categories, you would score 30, 40, and 25 points
respectively. For the 3 of a Kind, 4 of a Kind, and
Chance categories, you would score the total of the die face.## ChanceChance is the catch-all roll. You can roll anything and
you simply total all the die faces values.
## Final Scoring Rules - BonusThe final score is the total of all pattern scores, plus 35 (the Upper Section Bonus) if the total of the Upper Section scores, is at least 63 (the threshold).
