Rules and
Scoring
The aim of the game is
to score as many points as possible over 13 rounds.
Each round, the dice
are rolled and then scored in one of the 13 categories. Including
the initial roll, some or all of the dice can be rerolled up to
three times, after which it must be scored in one of the categories.
A category can only be
used once and the score cannot be changed once it's been used. The
game ends when all the 13 categories have been scored.
The categories and
points available for each are as follows:
Upper

Only
faces with a value of 1 are counted. 
Twos

also been filled, these additional Yahtzee rolls can be used as
'Jokers' to fill a Lower Score and receive the maximum points
available for that category.

game, 35 bonus
points are available at the end of the game if the total of the
Upper Scores totals 63 points or more.
