Description: Yahtzee has long been considered unsolvable by the mathematical world. It possesses so many permutations that even the most powerful mainframes can't crunch them all. However, in 1999, astrophysicist Dr. Olaf Vancura employed a unique series of mathematical "shortcuts" to obtain the exact solution to the game. The following discoveries were made possible by Dr. Vancura's solution:
-- A pinpoint determination of Yahtzee's expected value with perfect play. In other words, Dr. Vancura identified the highest average score possible. It is theoretically impossible to play in a manner that will improve on this average score.
-- A method for ascertaining the expected value for any strategy employed in Yahtzee.
-- The optimal strategy for playing Yahtzee.
-- Several abbreviated versions of optimal play, i.e., easy-to-implement strategies that will improve scores.

The score-enhancing strategies represent the book's premier attraction for millions of Yahtzee players worldwide. Advantage Yahtzee is a book that will show them how to win!
