Instructions

A version of the classic dice game, with the proper rules! Just like the well-known "Yahtzee" and the public domain game "Yacht".

Each turn begins by shaking all five dice. You then choose which dice to keep, and which to shake again - tap on the dice to "keep", then shake the remaining dice again. After your third shake, these are your final dice which count towards your score.

At the end of each turn, you now have to select a row from the scoresheet to enter your score. Each row scores in a different way, but you must pick one row. You then move to your next turn by shaking all five dice again. The game ends when you have entered a score for all rows in the scoresheet.

This app features three game types: Classic, Lucky7 and Tricolor.

Classic Rules

The scoresheet is divided into upper and lower sections.

Upper section: the rows are laballed Aces to Sixes - you score only those dice which coorespond to the name of the row. For example, if you select the row called "Twos" and your dice are "2, 3, 2, 2, 6", then you would score 6. You also score a bonus of 35 points if the sum of your scores in the upper section adds up to 63 of greater.

Lower section: here you must have the appropriate dice in order to score.
3/Kind: at least three dice must show the same value. Scores total of all dice.
4/Kind: at least four dice must show the same value. Scores total of all dice.
Full House: a set of three dice showing the same value, plus the remaining two dice showing another value (e.g "3, 3, 3, 5, 5"). Scores 25.
Lo Straight: a run of at least four numbers (e.g "1, 2, 3, 4"). Scores 30.
Hi straight: a run of all five (e.g "1, 2, 3, 4, 5"). Scores 40.
YachtC: all dice showing the same value. Scores 50.
Chance: scores total value of all dice.

Note that the order the dice appear does not matter, so for example "1, 4, 3, 5, 2" is also a "Hi Straight". A second "yahtzee" in the same game is worth an extra 100 bonus points.

Lucky7 Rules

In this variation, the game is played with seven-sided dice. The "seven" on one of the dice is highlighted a different colour. When you are lucky enough to roll this dice, it can be used as a "wildcard" to represent any value from 1 to 7. Tap on the dice until it shows the value you most prefer.

The scoresheet is divided into upper and lower sections just like the classic game, but this time there are seven rows in the upper section. You need to score 84 in the upper section to get the bonus, which is worth 46 points.

The lower section of the scoresheet is just like the Classic game, but you can of course use the "wildcard" 7 to help.

Tricolor Rules

In this variation, the game is played with special dice with different colored faces and is similar to the game known as "Kismet". By default, the faces showing "1" and "6" are white, "2" and "5" are red, with "3" and "4" being green. The dice colors become significant for some rows in the lower section.

The scoresheet is divided into upper and lower sections just like the classic game.

Upper section: The upper section works in a similar way to the classic game, except that the bonus is variable depending on your score:
62 or less : no bonus
63 to 70 : bonus 35
71 to 77 : bonus 55
78 or more: bonus 75

Lower section: The lower section contains some extra rows, some of these relate to the dice colors:
2 Pair Color: two pairs, but both pairs must be the same color dice.
3/Kind: just like the classic game.
Straight: a run of all five dice (i.e. High Straight) but in this version scores 30.
Flush: all five dice the same color, scores 35.
F/House: full house, just like the classic game but scores total of all dice plus 15.
F/House color: full house, but all dice must the same color - scores total of all dice plus 20.
4/Kind: like the classic game but scores total of all dice plus 25.
YachtC: scores total of all dice plus 50.
Chance: as classic, scores total of all dice.
In this version of the game, you continue to get a bonus 100 for a second YachtC.

"Yahtzee" is a trademark of Hasbro.

yachtc My high score is 632 why am i not on the top yachtc score list

Sometimes your score will not appear immediately. Also, it will only be submitted to the global score list if internet was available on your device at the time.

two players Love the game but would live it more if allowed for two players or more

game statistics? Would love to see stats such as average score, current 100 game streak, best 100 game streak, current 10 game streak, etc

This could be a nice feature, however of course sometimes players quit prematurely or do not save their score if they are not doing well, which would effect their averages.

Need multiplayer While I understand your feelings on the issue, I like to compete against another player for "bragging rights"! Either an AI or live where we can pass the device back and forth.
posted 2013-12-11 by Chris M
YachtC is not an ideal game for an AI opponent as each player's dice are completely independent of the each other. Allowing two players to play by passing the device back and forth has the same problem, but at least I can see some use cases where it might be a useful feature. I'll look into that option at some point when I have free time.

title? Need 2 player mode! Game favors lg straight...played hundreds of times and never not gotten it. And if i have 2 pair and am going for full house, i get it 80% of the time. (The straight and full house comments actually aren't complaints)
posted 2013-08-14 by j ties
The dice values are generated randomly from your device, there are no programmed rules to generate favored outcomes. Yahtzee is not an ideal game for a two player mode, as each player is completely independent of the other. Two player games tend to work best when each player's decisions affect the strategy of the other player, which doesn't happen in Yahtzee.
