Yahtzee is a video game version of the popular strategy dice game of the same name, created by Milton Bradley for the TI-99/4 and TI-99/4A home computer systems. It was part of Milton Bradley's Gamevision series that was scheduled to release at the same time Texas Instruments released the TI-99/4. The Gamevision version of the game was released during the 3rd quarter of 1979 under part number MB 4967 and retailing for $24.95 (USD). Texas Instruments later re-released Yahtzee on its own during the 2nd quarter of 1980 with the part number PHM 3039, retailing at $29.95 (USD). Yahtzee was programmed by Elaine Henshon, and was released on Solid State SoftwareTM Command Module cartridge.


Yahtzee for the TI-99 home computer system shares similarities with the regular dice-based game of Yahtzee with some unique differences. When the game begins, the option is presented to play either a one or two-player game. In one-player mode, the player plays against the computer. Two-player mode allows for two people to play against each other.
