DELUXE YAHT is a very attractive computerized version of the famous     
Yathzee dice game.  In it, you throw five dice and try to match certain 
combinations (all sixes, full house, straights, etc).  You get a        
different amount of points for different combinations, and the player   
with the most points after the last throw wins!  The computer rolls the 
dice and you choose the combinations.  Old Yathzee players will like    
this version because the program tracks the scores on-screen with a     
score sheet that looks like the original paper version.  Deluxe Yaht is 
easy to use, and great fun for adults and children.
