Five Die Console Yahtzee

The Five Die Console Yahtzee game was created to demonstrate a possible use for a C++ die manager class I wrote. This example uses five dice to play Yahtzee, which is a familiar game to many people. Thus, it only made sense to use something familiar to demonstrate the capability of the C++ classes to the instructor at the University.

About Yahtzee
Yahtzee is the trademarked name of a popular dice game made by Milton Bradley, which is now owned by Hasbro.

Number of players
There can be any number of players. However, I have only tested it up to twenty (20) players in a game.

Object of Five Die Console Yahtzee
The object of the game is to score the most points possible by rolling five dice. The dice can be rolled up to three times in a turn. There are thirteen possible scoring combinations. A complete game consists of thirteen rounds. During each round the player decides which scoring combination is best suited for that round. Once a player uses a scoring combination during a game it cannot be used again by that player.

The Rules
The rules, scoring combinations, and how to play instructions are all included in the download file as a PDF. They can also be found here: Five_Die_Console_Yahtzee.pdf
