The rules of this game are simple enough that everyone can play.
Using only five of the six dice, the first person rolls the dice. The idea is to fill in all the spaces on your score card. For example, you will try to roll all ones, twos, threes, fours, fives, and sixes. If you roll all five of one number you will get a Yahtzee giving you 50 points! You will also want to try for three or four of a kind, full house, small and large straight, and a chance when you have nothing else to keep.
Each person gets three rolls, and with each roll, they can keep what they want and roll the rest or throw them all back in and try again. The last roll counts because you will have to take a score, so make sure it’s a good one!
