  2. Keep the dice between each roll
  3. Validate a throw by clicking on the score sheet

The different types of points

On the combination grid, you will see that there are 13 actions to perform. The top of the grid with the numbers also called the minor part and the second part of the grid with the combinations also called the major part.

The numbers

This simply consists of making as many points as possible for each dice value. The 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s and 6s. Example: You roll 4 times the value 2. You therefore score 4×2 = 8 points in the 2 box.

Number bonus:

If the total of points scored from 1 to 6 is 63 points or more, then you earn an additional bonus of 35 points which will be added to your total score.

The combinations

There are 7 combinations to be made.

  • Three of a kind: 3 dice of the same value. The points scored correspond to the sum of the 3 dice of the same value.
  • Four of a Kind: 4 dice of the same value. The points scored correspond to the sum of the 4 dice of the same value.

  • The big row: 5 dice in a row. 12345 or 23456.
  • Luck: this is a kind of joker. When you are not satisfied with any of the possibilities, you can simply write down the value of your 5 dice in the luck box.
  • Yahtzee: 5 dice of equal value. The Yam is worth 50 points regardless of the dice used to make it.

Players take turns playing. As soon as they have taken their 13 turns, the total scores are recorded and the game is over. The player with the most points wins the game.

The most frequently asked questions

What is the difference between Yams and Yahtzee?

This famous dice game is played all over the world. But depending on whether you play it in English, French or German-speaking countries, you may see it called Yahtzee, Yahtzee, Yam's, Yatzi...

Depending on the country, there may be some small differences, especially in the counting of points, but the rules are almost identical all over the world. 5 dice, 13 combinations and a lot of fun.

I made a square of 6, should I put it in the square or in the 6s?

At the beginning of the game, you may be wondering if you should go for the numbers or the bottom combinations? You have just made a square of 6 at the beginning of the game? We advise you to score with 6s and not with squares, simply because it will allow you to obtain the 35-point bonus much more easily. In addition to this, if you fail to make a throw, you will be able to score low in the 1s and 2s box.

How can I pass the grand suite?

Both the grand suite and the Yahtzee are difficult combinations to achieve. For the grand suite, if you make 2345 at the beginning of the game, we advise you to keep them, you will have a 33% chance on each throw to make the grand suite since a 1 or a 6 will give you the grand suite. It is much more difficult to make it when you keep 2356 for example and try a 4.

Can you play faster?

Yes, on LudiCash you can activate the 2D option which allows you to have a much faster animation. You will then be able to roll the dice one after the other.
