Yahtzee gives you that classic casino feel, prevalent to board games that run more on luck than skill. Roll your dice and make the best combinations out of 5 dice with three rolls each, and experience that poker sensation reminiscent of a past age with this leading app.
Old Time Classic
The design is simple yet maintains that classic feel in an age of powerful CGI and NVidia graphics. Your display consists of the regular Yahtzee leaderboard, with your combinations scores and the Roll tab. It also has the home button and a sound button.
The ultimate aim of the game is to get a ‘Yahtzee’ which is a combination of 5 similar dice. The game takes 13 turns with each turn consisting of up to 3 rolls of dice. On the first roll, you are free to roll all five dice. After the second roll, you can hold any subset of the five dice you want while rolling the rest aiming for a great combination. Once a player has chosen a combination to be used in a particular round and entered on the leaderboard, it cannot be used again. The general rule is once you get the first Yahtzee, you are awarded a 50-point bonus. If you get another Yahtzee assuming you didn’t take a zero, you are awarded a 100-point bonus.
The leaderboard consists of 13 scoring boxes divided into the upper and lower sections. If you have a score of 63 or higher in the upper section, you get a bonus of 35 points at the end of the game. I marked the graphics of the game as 8/10.
The Ultimate Convenience
The simple Tap mechanism is quite convenient for this Android app. It ensures you can fully enjoy the gaming experience without any clutter on your screen and also makes the entire playing process really simple.
Yahtzee for your Google Android is free to get. There are no in-app purchases which makes the game even more enjoyable and retains the original gameplay. The gameplay’s score is 9/10.
