To play Yahtzee, you will need five dice, a scorepad, and a pencil. The players take turns rolling the dice and filling in the appropriate spot on their scorepad.
The objective of Yahtzee is to score the most points by filling in the different categories on the scorepad. Points are earned by rolling certain combinations of numbers on the dice, such as a full house, straight, or five of a kind. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.
Each turn, a player rolls all five dice, and can choose to re-roll any or all of the dice up to two times. After the final roll, the player fills in a spot on their scorepad corresponding to the combination of numbers rolled. Each spot on the scorepad can only be filled in once.
The game continues until all spots on the scorepad have been filled in. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Yahtzee can be played with many variations, such as playing with different numbers of players, adding more complex rules, or playing with different sized groups. Alternatively, you can play with different scoring method, like the first player to reach a certain number of points wins.
