Assign specific areas on the scorecard for each category (e.g., three of a kind, four of a kind, full house, etc.).
Rolling the Dice:
- Each player takes turns rolling the six lawn dice.
- After the first roll, the player can choose which dice to set aside and which to re-roll.
- After the second roll, the player can again select dice to keep and re-roll the rest.
- Once the player decides to score or cannot make a valid move, they choose a category on the scorecard to record their points.
- Categories include Ones, Twos, Threes, Fours, Fives, Sixes, Three of a Kind, Four of a Kind, Full House, Small Straight, Large Straight, Yahtzee, and Chance.
