    Now that I've finally shaken loose of Final Exams, I am proud to present this game. :)

    YAHTZEE!

    Yahtzee is a dice-based game in which players compete to see who can fill in thirteen categories on the scoresheet with the highest numbers.

    Each turn, five dice will be rolled for each player. The players may choose to either score their roll in one of the categories on the scoresheet (they may only score in one category each turn) or reroll their dice again (the player may choose which individual dice they wish to reroll), for up to two rolls after the initial roll. The third roll must be scored. If, on the third roll, a player has no combinations to score or does not wish to score, a zero must be scored in one of the categories. Once all players have scored for that turn, the game moves on to the next turn and the process is repeated.

    Players will have 24 hours to choose to score or reroll once the rolls are posted. 24 additional hours will be granted for each reroll. If a player misses their turn, a 0 will be marked in the lowest scoring category available.

    PLAYING THE GAME

    On the scoresheet, there are thirteen categories. Aces (Ones), Twos, Threes, Fours, Fives, Sixes, 3 of a Kind, 4 of a Kind, Full House, Small Straight, Large Straight, Yahtzee, and Chance. Aces to Sixes may be filled in by adding up the total of the number of dice with dots matching the number of the category. For example, if two of your rolled dice had six dots, 12 would be scored in the Sixes category. Note that once a category is filled in, you cannot score again in that same category for the rest of the game. At the end of the game, if a player has scored a total of 63 or higher after adding together scores from Aces to Sixes, they will receive a 35-point bonus.

    3 and 4 of a Kind are for when you roll multiples of the same die face. For example, if you rolled four Fives or three Aces. These are scored by adding up the total of all dice rolled. Small and Large Straights are for when you score a sequence of numbers in your roll, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. A Small Straight is worth 30 points and a Large Straight 40. A Full House is when you roll three of one number and two of another. This is worth 25 points.

    A Yahtzee is the best roll possible, 5 of a Kind. This is worth 50 points. If you roll more than one Yahtzee in the same game, you will receive a 100-point bonus for each additional Yahtzee. For each additional Yahtzee, you must also score in the corresponding Aces to Sixes category or (if the corresponding Aces to Sixes category has already been filled in) receive full points in any other category in addition to the Yahtzee bonus. However, if a 0 has been scored in the Yahtzee category, no bonuses will be received for additional Yahtzees. Chance is the final category. This may be filled in at any time, by simply adding together the total of the die you rolled. The game ends once each player has filled in all thirteen categories on their scoresheet. The player with the highest point total at the end of the game wins!

    VICTORY

    The winner of Yahtzee will receive 24 hours of VIPship with colors and a title signifying them as the winners.

    Did you rearrange the dice and I got the same numbers, or is something off there? :p

    Having rolled such numbers before, myself, I'm not surprised. :p

    Score threes, then, please.
