I was very happy to see a Yahtzee game for Kindle. I have always enjoyed playing it. The game controls are easy to learn. I like the fact that there are different modes you can play. There is the "classic" game that everyone is familiar with. There is "quick play" which you play by yourself - great to see how high a score you can achieve. There is "duplicate" mode where both you and the kindle player use the same dice. You go first, take your turn, take your score. When kindle plays you'll see that kindle's rolls are the same as yours - but will kindle decide to score the same way as you or not?? There is also a "Battle" mode. In that game, each player starts out with 100 points. The object is to take away your opponent's points before yours are taken away. When you roll the dice and take your score, if you score in the "lower" section ( large straight, small straight, full house etc.) the amount of points is taken away from your opponent. If you score in the "upper" section ( 1's, 4's, 6's, etc.) you gain points. By pressing the "S" key you can see the scoresheet. I have played all of the modes and like them all. I think Electronic Arts did a fine job with the game.
