Yahtzee! The Game of Chance, Risk & Probability

Posted by eastwoldblog on March 9, 2010

In Maths this week, we are looking at Probability and Chance!

This dice game is incredibly popular in the Far East and was a popular game in Britain a few years ago.

It involves using your number skills and knowledge of chance and probability.

Play “Yahtzee!” at Ambleside Primary School

Playing Yahtzee:

You roll the five dice by clicking on the ROLL button.

After each roll you have to click on the dice to select them and you can roll them again up to two times.

When you have had all your rolls click on a score box to add the score for that combination of dice.

After each roll you MUST select a score box – even if it means you get zero!

A SMALL STRAIGHT is 4 scores in order e.g. 1 2 3 & 4

A LARGE STRAIGHT is all 5 dice in order 1 2 3 4 5

A FULL HOUSE is 5 dice all the same

A YAHTZEE is 5 sixes.

A CHANCE adds up all the scores of the dice.

GOOD LUCK
