Basic Yahtzee gameplayThe premise of Yahtzee is simple - you roll 5 dice and must try to create different combinations like a full house, large straight, or three of a kind. For each dice roll, you must select one of the scoring categories - this is why strategy is important. Rolling the dice is pure luck, but selecting your hand requires skill.
As with the standard game, if you score a Yahtzee (5 of the same number), you score 50 points. Also remember that if your left-hand column scores are greater than 65, you gain a bonus of 35 points too. Use this to your advantage and try to create the best combinations.
Different combinations of YahtzeeYahtzee Online is a game that has a variety of different scoring combinations. The left-hand side contains number scores - you must count how many dice you have of one number, and add them together to get your score. For example, rolling 4x fours would be a score of 16.
The right-hand side contains the specialist scores including:
- Three of a kind
- Four of a kind

- Big straight (five numbers in a row i.e. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
