Yahtzee Description

Yahtzee is a great traveling game, as you need only a piece of paper, a pen and 5 dice.

The object of Yahtzee is to obtain the highest score from throwing 5 dice, up to three times each turn. The game is very similar to Poker, as each roll can be scored as a pair, three of a kind, straight, flush etc. The game consists of 13 rounds. In each round, you roll the dice and then score the roll in one of 13 categories. You must score once in each category. The score is determined by a different rule for each category. The game ends once all 13 categories have been scored.
