The classic game YAHTZEE.
Play against a computer player and see who can get the highest score.
Play the classic dice game YAHTZEE, against a computer opponent named Bill. The objective of the game is to get the most points by getting the right combinations of dice. In each turn a player may throw the dice three times, and can hold the dice he wants to keep to the side. E.g. if a player throws 6,6,2,3,1 he can choose to keep 6 and 6, and just throw the 2,3,1 dice again, to try to get as many sixes as possible.
The available combinations are:
Ones: Get as many ones as you can
Twos: Get as many twos as you can
Threes: Get as many threes as you can
Fours: Get as many fours as you can
Fives: Get as many fives as you can
Sixes: Get as many sixes as you can
If you get a total of 63 or higher from the above combinations you will get a bonus of 35 extra points. To get 63 points you need on average to get three of each combination, e.g. three ones, three twos etc.
The other combinations are:
Three of a kind: Get three of the same kind
Four of a kind: Get four of the same kind
Full house: Get two of the same kind and three of another kind
Small straight: Get four in a row, e.g. 1,2,3,4 or 2,3,4,5 or 3,4,5,6
Large straight: Get 5 in a row, either 1,2,3,4,5 or 2,3,4,5,6
Chance: You can use anything for this, it's just a sum of your dice. Good when you don't have anything else.
YAHTZEE: Five of a kind. This will always give you 50 points, no matter what number you get five of.
