Very nice, I used to play with my parents and we used to just make our own score sheets on a tablet.

This is pretty cool but if you have access to a computer why not just make it easier on yourself and just carry around the dice. If you go to you can enter your scores online for free and it'll add all the totals for you right there on the screen. It's free and VERY cool.

Just wanted to thank you for having done this. We had everything we needed to play except the score sheets and I looked all over the internet trying to find a printable copy of the genuine thing. I couldn't find it anywhere else and finally I stumbled upon this site and your do-it-yourself game. I copied the picture..enlarged it just a bit since my hubby and I don't have the vision we used to, and now we're back to playing regularly. Thanks a bunch!!!

You are welcome

wow nice idea

I liked your idea so much, I made an "environmantally friendly" version by only printing 1 score card and laminating it. I keep score on it with a whiteboard dry-marker and just re-use the card forever.

probably verry for spending 10-20 dollars on it

i wonder how pissed the 1st guy to open up a yatzee box was... "wtf, its just some dice and cups and paper!"

The Muffin Man (author)2006-09-24

Wow thanks guys i never thought it would be that cool! Well enjoy and if you need any more score sheets or anything just tell me so i can upload some

i love yahtze! but man this is pure genius and i think he meant this as a "build a yatzee game from scrach" kind of thing because note that he told us to go out and buy some dice and stuff and how he supplied the manual and the score sheets

Simple, yet funny. I never thought of saving my yahtzee gear this way. I also like that you added a sheet and a ruleset to play with.

Although this is more-than-obvious, I think I might actually throw away my yahtzee box for this alternative. I like how the container doubles as a shaker :-)
