Or 2, 3, 4, 5. Such combination will bring you 30 points.
Large Straight here you need to collect five game dice in a numerical sequence. For example, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. This combination will give you 40 points.

But if your Yahtzee box is already set to zero, you do not get the bonus. You can use the combination in the other cells at the bottom of the Scorecard Yahtzee: Full House, Large Straight, Small Straight and get the corresponding number of points.
Chance is a cell that you can fill with any combination if you don't want to fill another cell. You can use Chance and record the sum of all rolled dice. For example,
you rolled dice 2, 2, 3, 5, 6. No special combinations are visible and you record the number 18 in the chance box.
2 + 2 + 3 + 5 + 6 = 18
Scorecard Yahtzee has 13 cells that you fill as you play.
The 13 cells are 13 rounds.
After each round, you fill one cell.

2 sum of game dice with number two
3 sum of game dice with figure three
4 sum of game dice with figure four
5 sum of game dice with figure five
6 sum of dice with figure six
You write down values of dice with identical numbers in cells.
For example, you have dice: 1, 2, 2, 2, 3. You can write the result in cell 2 at the top of the Scorecard, it is six 2 * 3 = 6. Only dice with the same values are taken into account. At the top you should try to score a total of 63 points or more. Then you will get an additional bonus of 35 points when the game points are calculated.
The bottom part is made up of cells:
Three of a Kind
Four of a Kind

There are a total of 13 rounds in the game.
The game fills your Scorecard Yahtzee.

By the end of the game all Scorecard cells must be filled.
Roll the game dice for the first time. Look carefully at the matched values and determine what combinations you can make. On any roll, you can reset the game dice and leave new dice. For example, you rolled the game dice: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6. You can leave them, this Small Straight combination will bring 30 points. But you can roll a one to get a deuce and make a Large Straight and get 40 points.
Make your second roll. If you get the combination, you can finish the round and add your points to the Scorecard. However, you can always keep a couple of dice and roll the rest in the hope of luck. And if you still can't make a combination, there is one last roll.
You can always roll any number of game dice.
If you are satisfied with the dice from the first roll, you may not roll the next two dice, but rather record the combination in your Scorecard. For example, if you have five of the same dice on your first roll, it is foolish to make a move on. Scorecard your first Yahtzee.
If you are not satisfied with the resulting combination of game dice, you can write it in any box. For example, you got 4, 4, 3, 5, 6. You can write down a pair of fours, but this will only give you eight points. It is better to write the combination in cell 1, this will give you zero points, but leave the possibility of filling cell 4 more successfully.
After the last roll and score, fill in the Scorecard box and move on to the next round.
If you collect more than 63 points at the top of the Scorecard, you will receive an additional bonus of 35 points.
If you are a good luck favorite and have discarded two Yahtzee's for the game, you will be awarded 100 points for the second one.
At the end of the game, the total number of points is tallied, plus bonuses, if any.

On this basis, you can build a Full House or write a good value in the top cell. The essence of the strategy: you need to leave a pair after the throw, if the next throw gets another pair, leave the older one. The probability of collecting three identical dice following this strategy is about 80%.
After the first roll, if there are no pairs, you may leave only fives and sixes. You will be able to get the maximum average score.
Always leave identical dice after the roll.
If you roll three dice in numerical sequence, leave them, try to collect Small Straight or Large Straight.
If you roll a Small Straight, keep it and roll one dice, try to collect a Large Straight.
Try to collect the maximum values in cells 5 and 6 on the top of the Scorecard.
If you get an unsuccessful combination, record it in box 1.
Use the Chance box wisely; do not write values below 25 points.
Chances of Success

After all, it is so frustrating if you have already written zero into the Yahtzee cell and you get five of the same dice. Or you are left in Scorecard to fill the cell 6 on the top field, and you throw out four fives. So take your time and write down unsuccessful combinations in the first cells 1 and 2 first. Try to take your chances on the first rounds of the game when you have a lot of free cells!
