Yahtzee scorecards are one the few required pieces of equipment needed to enjoy a game of Yahtzee. A pack of scorecards, the Yahtzee scorepad, has naturally been included in all Yahtzee sets since the first production model was rolled out in 1956. The scorepad may seem endless when you first open your Yahtzee set but eventually you will come to the realization that only a few precious scorecards are left. When this panic sets in, try to remain calm as there are a plethora of options available to keep your dice rolling.
Get Yahtzee Scorecards
The simplest way to obtain more Yahtzee scorecards, also referred to as Yahtzee scoresheets, is to purchase a new scorepad from the manufacturer. Many Yahtzee players prefer to use the official scorecard as it exudes an air of dignity. In fact, most sanctioned Yahtzee tournaments require the use of official scorecards so it is always nice to have a stack at the ready. Then again, there is nothing in the rules that says you have to use a factory-made scoresheet. For the penny-pinching Yahtzeeist looking to save some dough or the radical dice roller who rejects the exploitative capitalist system entirely, you can select one of the templates below to print free Yahtzee scorecards online.

Standard Yahtzee Notation Scorecard
Standard Yahtzee Notation (SYN) is an alternative method of scoring a Yahtzee game that uses a custom scorecard to allow the player to record the sequence of their turns. The benefit of including this additional datapoint is balanced by a slight increase in the time it takes to mark one’s score. The SYN scorecard must be marked twice for each turn – once in the traditional way by scoring category which eases the total score calculation at the end of the game, and again to mark the sequence of the turn. It provides extra insight into a player’s strategy and, as its name suggests, is the standard way to record a Yahtzee game in competitive leagues across the world.
Note in the completed SYN scorecard below that the first two rows are used to record scores by scoring category as on a traditional scorecard. The third row uses Standard Yahtzee Notation to record the sequence of turns, (1) through (13). The bottom row captures the Upper (UST) and Lower Section Totals (LST) and the Grand Total (GT) of the game.
