1. ## VBA TextBoxes Yahtzee

Hi All

Ive posted a question of how to sum scores in an old Yahtzee i made sometime ago over at MrExcel: http://www.mrexcel.com/board2/viewto...=462469#462469

The code i work with for now:

```Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim DiceVals As String, Die1 As Integer, Die2 As Integer, Die3 As Integer, Die4 As Integer
Dim Die5 As Integer, Die6 As Integer
'Roll ye olde dice
Call DiceRoll
'Create an array (of sorts) holding the dice values
DiceVals = "{" & txtDice1 & "," & txtDice2 & "," & txtDice3 & "," & txtDice4 & "," & txtDice5 & txtDice6 & "}"
'Determine total of each die
Die1 = Evaluate("SUM(IF(" & DiceVals & "=1,1,0))")
Die2 = Evaluate("SUM(IF(" & DiceVals & "=2,1,0))")
Die3 = Evaluate("SUM(IF(" & DiceVals & "=3,1,0))")
Die4 = Evaluate("SUM(IF(" & DiceVals & "=4,1,0))")
Die5 = Evaluate("SUM(IF(" & DiceVals & "=5,1,0))")
Die6 = Evaluate("SUM(IF(" & DiceVals & "=6,1,0))")
'Total of single values 1 to 6 multiplied by its die number
txtOne = Die1
txtTwo = Die2 * 2
txtThree = Die3 * 3
txtFour = Die4 * 4
txtFive = Die5 * 5
txtSix = Die6 * 6
'Total for 3 of a Kind. If 3 or more dice are the same then total all 5 dice
If Evaluate("MAX(FREQUENCY(" & DiceVals & ",{1,2,3,4,5,6}))") >= 3 Then
txt3ofakind = Evaluate("Sum(" & DiceVals & ")")
Else
txt3ofakind = 0
End If
'Total for 4 of a Kind. If 4 or more dice are the same then total all 5 dice
If Evaluate("MAX(FREQUENCY(" & DiceVals & ",{1,2,3,4,5,6}))") >= 4 Then
txt4ofakind = Evaluate("Sum(" & DiceVals & ")")
Else
txt4ofakind = 0
End If
'Total for a Full House
If Evaluate("MAX(FREQUENCY(" & DiceVals & ",{1,2,3,4,5,6}))") = 3 Then
If Die1 = 2 Or Die2 = 2 Or Die3 = 2 Or Die4 = 2 Or Die5 = 2 Or Die6 = 2 Then
txtFullHouse = 25
Else
txtFullHouse = 0
End If
Else
txtFullHouse = 0
End If
'Total of Small Straight. Any 4 dice in sequence. eg 1,2,3,4 or 3,4,5,6 etc
If Die1 > 0 And Die2 > 0 And Die3 > 0 And Die4 > 0 Or _
Die2 > 0 And Die3 > 0 And Die4 > 0 And Die5 > 0 Or _
Die3 > 0 And Die4 > 0 And Die5 > 0 And Die6 > 0 Then
txtSmallStraight = 30
Else
txtSmallStraight = 0
End If
'Total of Large Straight. Any 5 dice in sequence. eg 1,2,3,4,5 or 2,3,4,5,6
If Die1 > 0 And Die2 > 0 And Die3 > 0 And Die4 > 0 And Die5 > 0 Or _
Die2 > 0 And Die3 > 0 And Die4 > 0 And Die5 > 0 And Die6 > 0 Then
txtLargeStraight = 40
Else
txtLargeStraight = 0
End If
'Total for Chance
txtChance = Evaluate("Sum(" & DiceVals & ")")
'Total for Yahtzee
If Evaluate("MAX(FREQUENCY(" & DiceVals & ",{1,2,3,4,5,6}))") = 5 Then
txtYahtzee = 50
Else
txtYahtzee = 0
End If
End Sub

Sub DiceRoll()
'You would need to change this to account for holding dice
txtDice1 = Int(6 * Rnd + 1)
txtDice2 = Int(6 * Rnd + 1)
txtDice3 = Int(6 * Rnd + 1)
txtDice4 = Int(6 * Rnd + 1)
txtDice5 = Int(6 * Rnd + 1)
End Sub```
Full credit for the code above goes to Parry!

What i'm trying to achieve is:

Sum txtDice 1 to 6 for Pairs, 3-4-5-of a Kind, Small Straight, Large Straight, Full Straight, House, Full House & Tower.

These are the Rules and Points
Points given are always the sum of the dice that counts as a match. This works fine for One, Two, Three etc.

One pair: 2 equals. Points: Sum of your pair. With 6 dice's it could of course be 3 pairs and therefor the highest pair are the one to sum.
Ex: One pair could be 1+1 = 2, 2+2 = 4. This could set you up with: 1+1+2+2+5+5 (3pairs) where 5+5=10 is the pair to sum (highest pair).

Two pairs: 2 + 2 equals. Points: Sum of the 2 pairs. With 6 dice's it could of course be 3 pairs and therefor the highest 2 are the pairs to sum.
Ex: Two pairs could be 1+1+2+2 =6 . This could set you up with: 1+1+2+2+5+5 (3pairs) where 5+5 & 2+2 = 14 are the pair to sum (highest pairs).

Three pairs: 2 + 2 + 2 equals. Points: Sum of all 3 pairs = sum all dice's.
Ex: 1+1+3+3+6+6=20

Three Of A kind: 3 equals. Points: Sum of your 3 equals. With 6 dice's it could of course be 2 sets of 3 equals and the sum of the 3 dice's in the highest set = Sum.
Ex: 1+1+1+2+3+4=3 1+1+1+4+4+4=12 (highest set of 3 of a kind)
Works except for summing the points and chosing the highest set of 3

Four Of A kind: 4 equals. Points: Sum of your 4 equals.
Ex: 2+2+2+2+1+5=8
Works except for summing the points

Five Of A kind: 5 equals. Points: Sum of your 5 equals.
Ex: 2+2+2+2+2+5=10
Works except for summing the points

Small Straight: 1-2-3-4-5. Points: Sum of 1-2-3-4-5 = 15
Since this always sums up = 15 there's no need to calculate the sum.

Large Straight: 2-3-4-5-6. Points: Sum of 2-3-4-5-6 = 20
Since this always sums up = 20 there's no need to calculate the sum.

Full Straight: 1-2-3-4-5-6. Points: Sum of 1-2-3-4-5-6 = 21
Since this always sums up = 21 there's no need to calculate the sum.
Works

House: 3 equals + 2 equals. Points: Sum of the 3 + 2 equals.
Ex: 1+1+1+2+2+4=7 Could be 1+1+1+2+2+2= 8 (3*2 highest 3 & 2*1)

Full House: 3 equals + 3 equals. Points: Sum of the 3 + 3 equals = demands that all dice's match = sum all dice's. Must be to different set fo equals with different value's.
Ex: 1+1+1+2+2+2=9 allowed 1+1+1+1+1+1 = Not allowed

Tower: 4 equals + 2 equals. Points: Sum of the 4 + 2 equals = demands that all dice's match = sum all dice's.
Ex:1+1+1+1+2+2=8 Works

Chance: Points: Sum all dice's. Works

Yatzy: Points: 100. Works

All suggestions are more than welcome!
