I gave this a chance, but really couldn't get into playing with 6 dice. With 5 dice, you can fill in your long straight in one of two ways: 1-2-3-4-5 or 2-3-4-5-6. So if you start with 2-3-4-5, you have a one in three chance of rolling a 1 or 6. But in this version, it takes all 6 dice. So, even if you start with 2-3-4-5-6, you are left with a one in six chance of rolling the 1. Difficult and frustrating. Similar with the full house. If you start off by rolling two pairs, you have improved chances of rolling one or the other with your 5th die. But this version requires you to have three of each. So, let's say you start out with two pairs. You have improved chances of completing one 3 of a kind, but then you still have to complete the other with no increased odds.
Successfully filling in many of the boxes requires the same level of difficulty as filling in a 5-dice Yahtzee. I was often left with a bunch of zeros. No fun.
I found the game at times tedious, but often infuriating. I guess you can't always improve on a classic. I gave it 2 stars because the game seems to be error free. Other than that, this is a "don't buy" recommendation.
Fond memories or my grandmother come to mind when I hear the word 'Yahtzee'. I will forever love this game. But why jump on the bandwagon with all other developers? It seems as if the adage "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" has (yet again) been tossed to the wayside. Five-dice Yahtzee wasn't begging to be 'improved'. It is one of many classics, along with Monopoly and Checkers. Bigger is not necessarily better, and neither is more. The developers did a fine job with this game otherwise, keeping it simple with design and colors. Too many games remind me of a kaleidoscope, with endless movement and spinning of colors. This is hands down a five-star app, but with the introduction of a sixth die, one star must be subtracted.
Okay, so it's Yahtzee with six dice. That's pretty straightforward. Much like normal Yahtzee, you have a card that you feel out with your rolls and try to get the highest score that you can. There are three different gamemodes, depending on what additional rules you want to play by. Ex. have 10 bonus rolls throughout the game to use wherever you will, or play doubles where you have to fill out each category twice.
If you like Yahtzee, then there's not much to say about this game, HOWEVER there's no multiplayer of any sort. Ok if there's no online multiplayer, but I can't even pass the tablet to a friend and see how he rolls. I used to love Yahtzee as a kid, but I never once played it all by myself because that was just boring and pointless. The enjoyment of Yahtzee was playing with friends and family. Without that option, it's pointless. Four stars for a decent game, five if they ever added multiplayer (preferrably offline multiplayer).
Got this free app of the day.I had a hand held Yahtzee game years ago(5 dice).This 6 dice version give alot more scoring combo's & you get 4 rolls insted of 3 with the regular game.If you like Yahtzee there is no reason you won't like this app!!You can play this for years & not get sick of it.You can't ever really master something that depends on the luck of a dice roll.Very happy with this app!!
This is a decent implementation of the Yahtzee game, with an added twist of a sixth die thrown in. This changes the game quite a bit. It makes it easier to score a straight and it makes it possible to get a six of a kind.
Yahtzee is a great game of chance and strategy. Playing it on the Kindle Fire is fun and convenient. This game lends itself well to playing alone or passing the device back and forth to play with a friend.
The graphics and controls for this game are pretty basic with no frills whatsoever, but the game functions well and is fun to play.
Yahtzee is one of my favorite games of all time. This one is an interesting take on traditional Yahtzee with the addition of a sixth dice - a concept I was resistant to as I'm a creature of habit and I love traditional Yahtzee. Then I started playing and much to my surprise found this one to be a lot of fun. It takes a bit to get used to the new scoring system (ie: a "full house" is 4x2 instead of the traditional 3x2) but once you've got the scoring figured out it's not bad. I like how each number on the dice has its own unique color so they're easy to spot on smaller screens. The interface is not overly cluttered and game play is easy. I've gotten quite a bit of play out of this one. Great game.
