Abstract [en]

The main purpose of this project is to create an algorithm that optimizes and plays

Yahtzee with a high average score. The algorithm uses probability theories and

rule based heuristics to achieve this. The Yahtzee game has been analysed from a

probability point of view, the goal is to optimise every turn. The algorithm and

how it has been used is presented in the paper as well with the results and the

differences with other strategies. The result in this project was very successful

with an average score of 211,04 on 100000 runs.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med detta projekt är att skapa en algoritm som optimerar och spelar

Yahtzee med ett så högt medelvärde som möjligt. Algoritmen baseras på

sannolikhet och regel-heuristik. Algoritmen som har använts, och resultat av

denna implementering, presenteras i denna kandidatuppsats tillsammans med

jämförelser med andra kända sätt att optimera Yahtzee. Resultatet av

implementationen gav ett medelvärde på 211,04 poäng över 100000 körningar.
