## History of the game

The game was created completely by accident. According to known data, one young Canadian couple had fun on a yacht on the high seas. They had dice with them, which they used for various games. However, when they got bored with all the famous games, they decided to come up with their own. Having written down the basic rules, the couple began to test their new “brainchild”. The process fascinated them so much that they played the rest of the rest exclusively in Yahtzee.

When the vacation came to an end, the enterprising couple came to the conclusion that since they liked the game so much, it might well be of interest to other people who love board games. Without thinking twice, they offered the well-known businessman Edwin Lowe to organize its production and release to the market. Lowe, who has an excellent "entrepreneurial flair", immediately agreed to the offer and acquired the copyright for the game. According to some sources, he paid 1,000 Canadian dollars for it, according to others, he got the game in exchange for 1,000 gift game sets.

One way or another, in 1956 Lowe's firm launched the first batch of Yahtzee on the market. Later, the rights to it were resold several more times. Currently, the exclusive copyright belongs to Hasbro.

## How to play Yahtzee

Yahtzee is a gambling game in which luck decides a lot. The player does not need to build a complex strategy, although it is important to understand which dice should be left and which ones should be thrown again, in which line it is better to write the result of the roll. In general, just roll the dice and have fun.

### Rules of the game

A game of Yahtzee consists of 13 rounds. The player with the most points after all rounds wins. It is necessary to collect combinations that are reflected in the table for scoring, the table itself is divided into 2 parts - upper and lower.

**Upper part.**Each column has a value equal to one of the faces of the cube. These columns contain the sums of the corresponding values of the cubes:- "Units".
- "Twos".
- Threes.
- "Fours".
- "Fives".
- "Sixes".

If the sum of the values of the upper part of the table is greater than 63, the player will receive 35 bonus points.

**Lower part.**Has the following options, which bring either a fixed number of points regardless of value, or the number of points is the sum of all the rolled dice:- Set - 3 dice of the same value (5-5-5-2-4 = 21 points) - the sum of all dice.
- Kare - 4 dice of the same value (1-1-1-1-3 = 7 points) - the sum of all dice.
- Full House - 3 dice of the same value + 2 of another value (2-2-2-3-3) - 25 points.
- Small Straight - four dice sequence (2-3-4-5-5) - 30 points.
- Big Straight - five dice sequence (2-3-4-5-6) - 40 points
- Ezzi - 5 dice of the same value (3-3-3-3-3) - 50 points.
- Chance - 5 dice of any value (2-3-5-6-6 = 22 points) - the sum of all dice.

Using the "Chance" column is useful if your combination does not fit into any other (either they are already taken, or you do not want to use them), but you feel sorry for losing the discarded values.

**Scoring.**After each player has made 13 throws, the total is summed up. The one with the most points wins.It is important to remember that there are two main conditions in the game:

- You can only write the result once per line.
- If the rolled values do not match any combination (lower part of the scoring sheet), then the player scores 0 points.

This game can be played alone, with two or more opponents.
