Yahtzee is the trademarked name of a popular dice game made by Milton Bradley (now owned by Hasbro).|
The object of the game is to score the most points by rolling five dice to make certain combinations.
The dice can be rolled up to three times in a turn to try to make one of the thirteen possible scoring combinations.
A game of Yahtzee consists of thirteen rounds during which the player chooses which scoring combination is to be used in that round.
Once a combination has been used in the game, it cannot be used again.
Each of the scoring combinations has a different point value, some of which are fixed values and others of which have the cumulative value of the dice.
A Yahtzee is a five-of-a-kind and holds the game's highest point value of 50.
