I enjoy this game. The regular games are fun and so are the interesting twists they put into the tournaments. Other reviewers have said that they find it hard to collect the dice you need for extra rolls or extra tournament entries but I haven’t found that to be the case. If you’re smart with the ones you have and use them strategically it’s easy to build up your extra dice. There are two problems with this game for me. First, there are far too many ads and it can really get frustrating and ruin the fun of the game. I actually play enough that I paid to get rid of the ads so it’s not a problem for me anymore, but at one point I almost quit playing because of it. My huge problem with this game is that it has extremely excessive animations that slow the game down and, it more importantly, drain your battery very fast. I have a newer phone and no battery problems with any other games or apps. I can play Pokémon Go for hours (and that requires gps) without a problem. Twenty minutes or so on this game and my battery will be almost drained. I have health problems and like to play games on my endless waits in doctor’s offices and when I’m in the hospital but I can’t play this one because of the battery issues. The game would be FAR more enjoyable if they would rein in those animations.
This is a very fun game, if you love playing Yatzy as a kid then you’ll love it now. The only problem that I have with this game is the dice are needed to play some of the tournaments or challenges are they hard to get and you have buy them, it’s an out rages price that you have to pay for just a few dice. For as much as it cost to play each round, the dice doesn’t last long long and I could never pay that amount of money for just a few dice and a few games. Even though the game is so fun to play I could never pay that amount of money. I stop playing for a while and I just came back last week and they actually change the game for the better because I like the new version that’s out now except for the money it cost for the dice. Also it’s a challenge but you get new dice that are purchased with tokens but you have to get the tokens and the problem that I have with that is as hard as it is to get those tokens and you need three to boot, when you finally get ready go see your new dice and you get one that you already have, that makes me very mad. They should have something In place like trading with other people to get different days they don’t have because I’ve got the same kind of dice twice and was very mad because it took so long to get the tokens, but overall it’s a very fun game.
With this app, you have two options for gameplay. You can play one turn at a time with strangers, which can be a very time-consuming endeavor. If you want to play a game by yourself (against the computer) you have the second option of engaging in the adventure modes. This is the typical profitable app model that uses timer countdown limits (e.g. once you play one game, you must wait three hours until you can play again) that encourage the user to utilize in-app purchases to buy local currencies. While I’m not the biggest fan of this model, I understand that it’s very prevalent and I’ve become accustomed to being patient and looking forward to it. What is the biggest disappointment is that many of the games are clearly fixed (in order to gain any significant advantage you would likely need to utilize further in-app purchases). I am obtaining my master’s degree in statistics and the probability of some of these outcomes happening repeatedly and as constantly as they do is so remote that it has just become so discouraging. If you’re looking to play Yahtzee, don’t get this app. The design is nice and the gameplay is superb, but unless you’re looking for an app that you mindlessly check on every few hours or if you don’t mind spending your actual money on this game, then go ahead and try it. I had been really underwhelmed with the game that I had deleted it. After having recently re-downloaded it, I will soon be deleting it again.
I like the new version overall. Scorecards all on one screen, more new dice and frames and events and it seems fun!...Until you realize that they’ve screwed you once again. Been playing for years now and I will not spend money for extra rolls, and if you don’t, they make it more difficult to beat each stage in the showdown. They always have, so I’m used to that. Sometimes it would take me a little longer to beat the whole thing and sometimes I’d get close but couldn’t beat it before the event was over. Fine. Well now, if you don’t get extra rolls, you might as well forget it. I play frequently and have yet to make to beat one showdown. Honestly, they’ve made it nearly impossible. Now, I do have to say that they have made it easier to win extra rolls on the scratchers. I’d never won more than 3 before (again...been playing for years) and in the new version I’ve already won 5 extra and 15 extra. But I guess because that improved, they had to do something to make other parts more difficult to entice you to buy more rolls. Needless to say, I was pretty excited at first but after a few weeks I’ve become even more annoyed with it than I ever had been before. It’s a bit ridiculous. There are other minor things that would make it a little better, visually and whatnot, but I don’t even care because I don’t see myself playing as much anymore anyway. Quite disappointed.
I love this game but they have gone from buying dice that you roll with some of the bonus dice packs. Where you paid and got what you paid for. Although rather expensive it was much better than this stupid claw machine where there is no choice or exchange the doubles you get aren’t even for the super dice and frankly shouldn’t even be there if you already have them. They keep track of what you have their computers know. Also they lie bonus rolls are not everywhere and every time they update they are harder and harder to get. Don’t let the black mega scratchers fool you, you mostly get experience points almost never dice and frankly with the word mega in the name there should be at least 5 dice on every single one of those cards and 3 on the red ones. OMG they act like these dice are made literally out of gold. It use to be so easy to get new dice to roll and bonus rolls they’ve made it so much harder that I sometimes hate this game. It’s even harder to roll what you need now. Random I don’t really believe it. Cheating is more like it or bonus rolls wouldn’t be needed so often. In the actual game with actual dice no one needs or gets bonus rolls and people manage to play and win the game and get the rolls they need. I have played this game more in real time than on any computer. Dice don’t roll like that. Also they steal the scratches half of the time when you win them.
