B .. YAHTZEE, YAHTZEE BONUS, JOKER & Plain 5-of-a-Kind

   A YAHTZEE is, of course, a 5-of-a-kind that is specificly recorded in
   the YAHTZEE columns. (column order does not matter). A YAHTZEE having
   five 1's, 2's or 3's will be worth 50 / 100 / 150 points; five 4's or
   5's make it worth 60 / 120 / 180 points; five 6's make it worth 75
   150 / 225 points.

   A YAHTZEE BONUS can be scored in the appropriately marked columns any
   time after the three YAHTZEE columns are all filled. The first YAHTZEE
   BONUS must go into the 1x column, the next into the 2x column, and the
   last into the 3x column.

   A YAHTZEE BONUS having five 1's, 2's or 3's will be worth 100 / 200 /
   300 points; five 4's or 5's make it worth 120 / 240 /360 points; five
   6's make it worth 150 / 300 / 450 points.

   A JOKER is a 5-of-a-kind score that can be recorded in either the
   Small Straight or Large Straight columns.  Point values for such
   scores are shown on the YAHTZEE Score Key diagram (see above).

   NOTE -- JOKERS will not count as either a YAHTZEE or a YAHTZEE BONUS.

   A Plain 5-of-a-Kind is a score that can be recorded in any row of any
   column other than YAHTZEE, YAHTZEE BONUS, Small Straight or Large
   Straight. It will not count as either a YAHTZEE or a YAHTZEE BONUS.


C .. 1st CHANCE and 2nd CHANCE

   1st CHANCE and 2nd CHANCE are merely an enhancement on the traditional
   YAHTZEE CHANCE option. Both allow a player to do the same thing that
   the traditional CHANCE option allows -- to record a dice sum score
   that for whatever reason could not otherwise be recorded in any of the
   other columns. Scores may be recorded in either the 1st CHANCE or 2nd
   CHANCE columns at any point in the game, and in whatever order that
   a player so desires.


D .. WASTE-A-TURN

   WASTE-A-TURN allows a player to do just what the term says.
   On those occasions in the game when a player feels that no
   score can be recorded in any regular column, they can simply
   mark an "X" in a WASTE-A-TURN column.

   WASTE-A-TURN can be used to avoid putting a "0" (zero) in any column
   when no acceptable score can be otherwise recorded. As a result, the
   player will have a few extra chances to record proper scores on
   future turns during any given game.

   WASTE-A-TURN has no bearing what-so-ever on game scoring,
   and can be used at any point in the game.
