In Yahtzee's distant past, the game was used primarily as a gauge of a player's karma levels or a tool for divination. Trying to maximize one's points was often a secondary concern, if the point system was used at all. Today, of course, the situation is reversed and accumulating points is the sole purpose of Yahtzee for many players.
Statisticians at the World Yahtzee Institute have evaluated thousands of Yahtzee games to determine the chances of achieving a particular score. Check your high score against the Yahtzee High Score Advisory System to see how you rank!
