Hi mathgogocart,

Haven't played that game for years! Played it quite a bit back then, though, but I think it was called YahtC (same game, I think).

Anyway, I got 318.

Hi mathgogocart,

I didn't know it was possible to get a score that low!

No disrespect, but are you sure you're playing it correctly? The rules are on the opening page.

Are you using all 3 rolls of the dice? Could be that you're making some wrong choices, too.

Xlnt!

You'll be past 300 before you know it!!

Btw, the highest score you can get is 375...for which you'd need the following:
1 Yacht of ones;
1 Yacht of twos;
1 Yacht of threes;
1 Yacht of fours;
1 Yacht of fives;
4 Yachts of sixes;
1 Yacht of any one denomination;
1 Full House;
1 Small Straight;
1 Big Straight.

That might take us a while to get!!
