Yahtzee, although a game of chance because of the dice, is also a game of skill. Deciding which dice to re-roll is a decision that can affect the outcome of the game. You can only score each box in the scorecard once per game, so it’s important to strategize to get the most points possible.

One basic strategy is that if you can’t get to a high-scoring roll, use up the ones or twos section. They won’t give you as many points as other sections, but you also won’t use up a high-scoring section that you might need later!
