For high-rolling, high-stakes fun, you can't beat the winning combination of Yahtzee and Texas Hold'Em poker! The trick is to make the best 5-dice "hand" from your two personal pocket dice and 5 up-for-grabs dice. Each roll could shift your strategy: will two pair become three of a kind or a full house? Will you go for broke with an all-in-bet?
At showdown time, the player with the best poker hand wins the chips. The ultimate hand is a Yahtzee flush: 5-of-a-kind in the same color "suit"!
Each player blind draws two dice from the bag and places them in his cup and shakes (his secret "pocket" dice), and they ante and bet based on their pocket dice. Then three more "community" dice are drawn and rolled (the "flop"), then a fourth (the "turn"), and a fifth (the "river"), with two betting rounds (of check, bet, call, call & raise, fold, and all-in options) in between each draw. Dice combinations are similar to their poker counterparts and can give players; two pair, three of a kind, full house, straight, four of a kind, flush, Yahtzee (five dice of the same number in different suits), straight flush, and the "Yahtzee Flush" - five dice of the same number and suit (color), that automatically wins a player the game.
