Yahtzee is a dice game played with 5 dice. Players have the option of re-rolling any number of dice up to 3 times in hope of making 1 of the 13 categories. Examples of categories are 3 of a kind, 4 of a kind, straight, full house, etc, and the category with the most number of marks is the Yahtzee, which is 5 dice of the same kind. An example is as follows:

Yahtzee! Woah 5 Sixes!

The player then try to fill in a score for each category, but this is not always possible. When all categories are filled with a score or a zero, the game ends and total scores are computed. Read more here!

My best score is 1695. Try beating that! Heh.

So what's the probability?

Hmm... go calculate leh! =)

C'mon we are waiting!!! =p btw, i beat ur high score. =) I got 1894.

So there...

Lol, ninja, you are suppposed to be the probablility expert wor. I've got the answer already lar,

yougo calculate leh!pls.... I where got expert lar. We take same module together so my knowledge cant exceed urs right?! =)

Go on. what's the probability?

lai lai dun fight...

let me take a shot in the dark...

there are 6 possible yatzees - all 1,2,3,4,5,6.

there are 6 possible throw per die. for 5 dice that would be 6^5. So a yatzee is 1/1296 probable to happen on one throw.

But with locking mechanisms, hrm... that would be hard... cos you gotta include the

brainsof the person in the prob function...1/432

how do u get 1/432?

My probability is 1.224%, see above for my solution. Dunno if correct anot, need some expert (read:ZG) to verify.

before I start calculating, just to check: what is yatzee? i still dont quite get it. just tell me how to get a yatzee first and i can see if u are right. btw, we take the

samemodule, so our knowledge is definitely the same on probabilities. As such, im not an expert. =)Yahtzee is 5 dice of the same kind lor, as mentioned above. For example 5 6's or 5 5's, etc.

REmember the 6 possible numbers that each dice can get. as such, MULTIPLY BY 6. =) Remember what i said.
