The Combinations are color coded as follows:
BLACK: Either the player hasn’t completed the rolls and can therefore not select any combinations yet, or it is not allowed to select this particular combination.
PINK: This combination has already been selected. The points earned is also indicated.
BLUE: This combination can now be selected and will earn the player some points.
RED: This combination can now be selected but will not earn the player any points.

Yahtzee Bonus:
If the player has already used the “Yahtzee” combination (YA) and thereby scored 50 points (possibly 100 points with Sharp Dice), then a Yahtzee Bonus of 100 points is earned each time an additional Yahtzee is rolled.

Yahtzee Joker Rules:
Yahtzee #2, #3 etc. can act as “joker” in certain combinations (no matter if a Yahtzee Bonus is earned or not). Please refer to the Yahtzee Joker Rules.

Sharp Dice (only in Premium edition):
With this rule the score is doubled in some cases. Please refer to the Sharp Dice Rules.

When the game has ended and the winner is announced, the color coding of the combinations change. This should give a good impression of the performance of the player:
RED: The score is 0 points.
ORANGE: The score is <= 50% of the max possible score.
BLUE: The score is > 50%, men < the max possible score.
BLUE with bold types: The score is the max possible score.
PINK with bold types: The score is > max possible score 🙂
(Only possible with Sharp Dice).
