Yahtzee

YahtzeeYahtzee is the world's most popular commercial dice game, first introduced in the 1950's and still a best-seller today. It is based on a game called "Yacht", and is also related to a Puerto Rican game called "Generala". To play the game you roll five dice in a effort to make different combinations of the five dice for the most points. Shoot for three-of-a-kind, four-of-a-kind, a full house, a straight, and more. If these "hands" sound familiar, it's because they're based on standard poker hands, with a few extra bonus hands thrown in.

Put five dice in a shaker, mix in strategy, add luck, stir – then let the fun begin!
