Yahtzee Rules
=============

* Each round consists of up to three rolls of five dices.  After the first
  roll, you have the option of keeping any number of dice. The set of dice
  you have left after the last throw is the set you will be scoring with.

* Turns are reiterated until all score boxes are filled. Each score box can
  only be filled once.   If the hand shown does  not match the score method 
  you chose, you will get a score of zero for that box.


o Ones, Twos, Threes, Fours, Fives and Sixes :
  - Score: Sum of all dices  with the  named value.  If sum of Ones through
    Sixes is greater than 63 then the bonus of 35 points is awarded.

o 3 Of A Kind
  - Score: Sum of all dice if 3 dice with the same value are in the hand.

o 4 Of A Kind
  - Score: Sum of all dice if 4 dice with the same value are in the hand.

o Full House
  - Score: 25 points if  the hand  contains two of  one value  and three of 
    another.

o Small Straight
  - Score: 30 points if a sequence of 4 is in the hand.

o Large Straight
  - Score: 40 points if a sequence of 5 is in the hand.

o Yahtzee
  - Score: 50 points for first  5  of a kind.  After that when you  score a
    Yahtzee, you  can  place it  anywhere you want,  you'll get the  normal
    points for the  certain box  and a bonus  of 50 points is added to your
    total score.

o Chance
  - Score: Sum of all dice in  hand.  This is used when you have a bad hand 
    that can't be placed anywhere sensibly.

* There is no multiplay support  so you can't  play with  your friends  and
  compare your scores etc. But  naturally boundless  number of  players can
  play this at the same  time trying  to make a  good score to the  hall of
  fame.
