A recent variant, ''Power Yahtzee'', includes a red Power Die, which can double or triple a player's score. ''Yahtzee'' was also the basis for a short-lived syndicated GameShow with [[TheHollywoodSquares Peter Marshall]] in the late-1980s.

''Yahtzee'' is an adaptation of a traditional English dice game (Yacht), altered slightly and given a pseudo-Oriental makeover by Milton Bradley. Players roll five dice, trying to get as many matching numbers as possible. If a player succeeds in getting all five dice to match, he gets a "Yahtzee" (called a "Yacht" in the traditional version) and a 50-point bonus. Bonuses are also awarded for poker hand-esque combinations, such as a pair of twos and three threes, making a full house.
