Yahtzee Party is a synchronized multiplayer game where players have up to 6 minutes to complete 13 rounds of Yahtzee. The goal is to score as many points as possible using the classic Yahtzee rules. Scoring in the top 3 will result in a substantial token bonus. In addition to being competitive, the game is also cooperative as players build a room bonus meter through each Yahtzee rolled, culminating in a room-based bonus game where everyone wins! Further, the 1st place player is able to gift tokens to a random player in the room. It’s not just competition, it’s a party!

Yahtzee Party Tips & Hints
Rank progress in Yahtzee! Party is gained through receiving Jackpot Spins. You earn a Jackpot Spin by scoring 225 in Classic Mode or 250 in Wild Mode.
Generally, most people prefer to play in Classic Mode because the wild dice do not come around often enough to compensate for the extra 25 points you need to get a spin.
Scoring 225 in Classic Mode is difficult enough, and you will need some luck. Sure, you will have games where you roll a bunch of Yahtzees and are given straights, 4-of-a-kinds, full houses on the first rolls. You’ll also have games where you cannot roll a 3-of-a-kind to save your life. The key to ranking is to be able to score 225+ when you aren’t getting lucky rolls.
Your main focus should be to get the “Upper Score Card Bonus” and the “Large Straight”. You will need Yahtzees to get a spin if you do not have both of those.
The minimum required for the “Upper Score Card Bonus” is getting three-of-a-kind on each number. If you can put a four-of-a-kind on the upper score-card instead of the four-of-a-kind box, do it! That will give you one free spot to dump an unlucky roll later. For example, if you have four 4’s for 16, later, you can put a zero in the 1’s box and still be in line for your bonus.
If you roll five dice and are 1-away from the large straight, go for it until you get it. If you don’t, your dump boxes are:
Chance (Dump here if you are 20+)
4-of-a-kind (Not worth the points, plus you need to put 4-of-a-kind’s in the upper section.)
1’s and 2’s (if you have a higher 4-of-a-kind to compensate)
Yahtzee – (Last resort for dumping.)
As for the Full House, you will probably roll one during your game when you weren’t trying to. It is best to immediately take the 25 points for the Full House the first time it happens, (unless you REALLY need the points for the three-of-a-kind that you have). It is very difficult to roll a Full House later in the game when you really need one.
If you keep using these strategies and do not count on rolling Yahtzee’s, you should be getting a spin at least half of the time.
