YACHT – the original version of YAHTZEE

Yacht can only be played in the Premium edition

Maybe you would like to try YACHT, which is the original version of YAHTZEE ? The two games are quite similar, but still there are a number of differences. The rules may vary a bit, but this is how it is implemented in the app. Only the differences to Yahtzee are described.

Upper Section Bonus:
No such thing in Yacht.

3-of-a-Kind (3K):
No such combination in Yacht, so there are only 12 combinations in total.

4-of-a-Kind (4K):
Like in Yahtzee, but only those 4 dice count.
So the combination 5-5-5-4-5 is worth only 20 points (in Yahtzee 24 points).

Little Straight (LS):
The combination 1-2-3-4-5 (in a random sequence). Fixed score is 30 points.

Big Straight (BS):
The combination 2-3-4-5-6 (in a random sequence). Fixed score is 30 points.

Full House (FH):
Like in Yahtzee, but the score is the sum of all 5 dice (not a fixed score of 25 points).

Player’s Choice (PC):
Same as Chance in Yahtzee. The score is the sum of all dice – any combinations are accepted.

Yacht (YA):
Same as Yahtzee (5-of-a-Kind). Fixed score is the same: 50 points.

Yahtzee Bonus & Yahtzee Joker Rules:
Not applicable in Yacht (or Yatzy).
