Example 2

Interesting example: what to save for the next roll?

Fig17Here you can find another interesting example calculated by the program. How does the program change saved dice in the following case:

  • Current combination of dice = 1,1,3,5,6
  • Current combination of unused places = Ones & Fives & Small Straight
  • Number of rolls left in the turn = 1
  • Yahtzee box already used with zero value (Y=0).

The program changes the combination of the saved dice depending on the score already earned in the Upper Section:

Upper Score missing from the minimum of 63 points
