The unprecedented development in programming and the development of different computer languages in the last three and more decades, has made it easy for programmers to produce a lot of online. Also a lot of these games are being incorporated into the operating system software of different manufacturers of computers.

One such game is the dice game known as Yahtzee. A game made popular in 1954 by a Canadian couples but which was said to have been invented in 1905 by Michael Bradley.

It is reported that the same couples who were Yacht owners, asked a toy maker, Edwin S. Lowe to make a few samples which they distributed as gifts. Lowe is said to have loved the game and asked to buy the rights to it and then he gave it the name Yahtzee.

Yahtzee is a simple game depending on the players' luck and so is popular both as a pastime game and a game for gambling. Also it is a game with a lot of use of simple arithmetic.

Due to its arithmetical nature it is now a very popular online game especially for use in schools as a game to teach pupils simple arithmetical procedures.

The interesting side of playing Yahtzee online is that the rules are just the same as playing the game on the table. The same thirteen rounds are observed by the players and so are the scoring of 3 of a kind, 4 of a kind, Full House, Small Straight, Large Straight, Chance, Yahtzee and Yahtzee Bonus.

The game itself begins with the player(s) choosing a certain combination and rolling the dice to try and get that combination. There are in all thirteen categories of these combinations. It begins with one of a kind, two of a kind, three of a kind and so on just like the "hands" game in pokers.

In each turn, a player is allowed to roll the dice up to 3 times in order to get the desired combination. On the first two rolls, the player rolls all five of the dice at once. On the third roll, the player can roll any number of dice he wants to, including none or all of them, trying to get a good combination. To get the combinations at each turn, player roles the dice three times and the score of the last roll of dice that is taken. The player can choose whether he wants to roll once, twice or three times in each turn. After the three rolls in a turn, the score is recorded in the scorecard, under any of the thirteen categories.

The score that the player finally gets for that turn depends on the category that is chosen and the combination arrived at. Once a box is chosen on the score card, it can't be chosen again. At the end of the thirteen rounds the scores of each player is added up. The player with the highest score is the winner.
