the perfect score is 351

Glen i would like to know how you get 351 even if you don’t play with the bonus yahtzee cus this is how the score would look

1(5)

2(10)

3(15)

4(20)

5(25)

6(30)

So top would be 105 plus 35 for bonus which is 140

3 of a kind(30)

4 of a kind (30)

Full house (25)

small straight (30)

large straight (40)

Yahtzee (50)

chance (30)

Bottom is 235

so 235 for bottom and 140 for top that would be 375

Apparently Glen cannot read.

We always found the rules for extra Yahtzees to be detrimental to the game.

We play as:

1) Yahtzee can count as a 3-of-a-kind, 4-of-a-kind and full-house

2) No 100 point bonus for extra Y! and no joker things

This has the consequence that often it's better to score zero in Yahtzees and put the score somewhere else, giving more tactical depth. Like, score a Yahtzee of 5s in the 5 tris, to get the bonus instead of in the yathzee box.

What is the highest score you have ever personally seen? At http://www.freethedice.com they have had over 2,000,000 games and the highest individual round was only 847, and that was four years ago!

The highest score I've seen was on one of those handheld Yahtzee computer games, and was 485 if I remember correctly.

1 year ago scored 527

I just scored 634 on my last yahtzee game

Today I got 1,029.

I scored 1476 today

So what happens if you throw 20 yathzee's in a row right from the start…..does this not mean 1950 leaving the rest of the boxes unchecked?

@Bob: Good question.

When you get your first Yahtzee, you score it in the Yahtzee box.

Or maybe you got (6 6 6 6 6), and you decide to score it in SIXES instead. Fine. So when you get your second Yahtzee, you score it in the Yahtzee box.

Or maybe you score that in FIVES… well, anyway, eventually you score *something* in the Yahtzee box. Great.

And then you get another Yahtzee.

Awesome. You put another tick next to the Yahtzee box, indicating that got another Yahtzee.

But you're not done… you still need to score it somewhere. That is, you need to put it into a box.

And that means you can't get 20 Yahtzees in a row. You can only get 13. After your 13th Yahtzee, all your boxes are full, and you're done.

The highest score I ever got in Yahtzee is 582 (4 Yahtzees).

When i played in http://www.freethedice.com, my highest score was 527… looking forward to score higher than that

OK, So the bonus "35" Score of the upper section comes from the possibility of getting a bonus "YAHTZEE" of all numbers due to a pattern of 5's (5, 10, 15, 20 etc.) Just to get that out of the way.

So assuming you get a YAHTZEE in all numbers for the top section it would total out to 105 plus the 35 bonus to make it a total possible score of 140 for the upper section.

Now the lower section, (This applies both the House and Joker rules)

so assuming all YAHTZEE's are of 6's the following would be scored 30: 3 of a kind, 4 of a kind, and Chance. And since they are all YAHTZEE's it adds a score of 1200 for all 12 bonus YAHTZEE's (at 100 Each) plus the Full-House and straights are at face value so adding it all up 30+30+25+30+40+50+30+1200=1435 and the upper section, which was 5+10+15+20+25+30+35=140 and finally, 1435+140=1575. Which is a perfect score possible in YAHTZEE!

I just scored 2649583973937483739749474074947487403027395828401719480559584984948405837395740374936484948384584857495848748569838485969686969069273514273638506040494736485725184950604737496073627355681619602660375938503958383850849883747475625285628473846383683634765198104900012375747392756618429493938595029585058594849484754494749374885993758 on my last Yahtzee game

I just scored 1 point more!

Now 2 points more! Unbelievable! Fantastic!!

needing a full house as the last category, I rolled 5 sixes – I would contend that I had the trio of sixes to go with a pair of sixes and thus a full house – the Yahtzee category was already filled. This was on an internet game and they would not let me count it as a full house. Can I challenge the ruling with any evidence or rulings – anyone know?

@Kirk: you should have been able to score it in 25 points under the Joker rule, since YAHTZEE and SIXES were both checked.

> I had the trio of sixes to go with a pair of sixes and thus a full house

The official rules require that a full house consist of two *different* numbers.

If you get a Yahtzee for every category, you'd get 1300 points for the Yahtzee Bonus. Perfect score is 375, plus the 1300 is 1675.

No you don’t get the 100 point bonus on your first yahtzee…thus the maximum possible yahtzee bonus is 1,200

No help biggest sore is 1673

396

The highest score I ever got in Yahtzee multiplayer online is 404 .

I just looked at the official Hasbro rules & there is no mention of a 100 point bonus on any subsequent Yahtzees, only 50. Where did your version come from? My calculation comes up to 1035 assuming 5 of a kind will score on a full house. But it will not score on the straights so if they are already filled in that would change the score. So there is no true “highest score”

In http://www.hasbro.com/common/instruct/Yahtzee.pdf see the “YAHTZEE BONUS” section.

Today I scored 5.

PS: I am a grandmaster in this game, I can always defeat you all in Triple Yaytzee.

Lol

I got 318 today! I know that sucks

I did not get my 25 rolls or dice for installing Starz

If you play the online app called “New Yatzhee” they have certain rules:

Additional Yahtzee is 50 bonus points

They do not allow 5 of kind for Full house

The highest score for this app is 880.
