Lack of rewards 2/5
Love the new Yahtzee but yet you can’t earn bonus rolls from scratchers, I almost never get any. You can’t even collect the dice roll you want, I’d would be prefer to collect tokens to pay for a dice I want rather than playing with the useless claw for boring ugly dives that we have already.
Nothing random about it 2/5
Fun game, but don’t think you’ll ever beat a dice master on the last roll. For example, if you need two(2) fives to hit bonus on your last roll, expect to only roll one or zero fives. Every. Single. Time.
The graphics and overall gaming is good.
The cheating during the tournaments is completely out of hand and pathetic. No matter what, the computer rolls at least one yatzee during EVERY game. As soon as you take the lead, the game stops rolling 3 or more of the same dice. It has taken the fun out of the games, and is no longer an app i want to play.
What happened?!? 5/5
I love this game but for the past few days my games aren’t showing.
Love Ruzzle... i don't get anything done... obsessed..!!
The odds of winning are one on ten. You score a Yahtzee. They score two.
If I could give it 0 stars, I would. I miss the old Yahtzee where I could just play unlimited against a computer. Now it’s practically impossible to win and so frustrating. In order to win, you basically need to spend lots of money on dice. The reason it’s impossible is because it’s not a realistic game. When playing the computer will miraculously get Yahtzee every turn, sometimes twice. You will not be so lucky though. If you don’t win, you have to pay more to play again. I want to play something realistic and not purposely favoring the computer just to get cash. If you want to save some time, money, and frustration, don’t download this game.
Totally not screen reader accessible 1/5
I am blind. I use to be able to play this game by using the iPhone’s built in screen reader. This game has become less accessible with each update. Sadly I can no longer play because the game is now totally not accessible. I have been a long time player. I even bought this app to be free of adds. I will gladly continue to play if the accessibility issues are fixed.
Slow and freezes 2/5
This app is so slow and it freezes. Plus when you go to take your turn the opponents dice cover the ones and three of a kind and it stays there for way too long.
Pay for extra rolls. Cluttered interface. 1/5
By Twirling fern
Pay for extra rolls are you joking?
Extremely cluttered and hard to navigate.
Game wants you to spend lots of money like a cash grabbing app.
Stay away from this garbage.
I am not happy I was on level 7and now it got me like I on level one basically starting all over and it won’t let me use my custom dice.
Bring the old version back 1/5
I don’t like the new game...not even a little bit
Can’t find game 3/5
By Laughing nigh
Just want to play the normal Yahtzee and all these other things keep popping up. Can’t even find the game.
More convoluted than the previous version 1/5
The layout is cluttered and awful. Excessive graphics block and slow down game play—super annoying! The update has also made it harder to earn dice and decorative dice. But if you’re there to simply play Yahtzee (and have the patience to fight with the slowed down cluttered design) then this is the game for you.
Way too many ads!!! 2/5
Cmon people!!!! This is loaded with so many ads that it is almost not enjoyable! I get that you’re trying to make money but this is ridiculous! Every two roles, I have a 15-30 second commercial to wait through! News flash!!! I don’t watch the ads, I put the phone down for 15-30 and contemplate not playing this again!
This App Cheats 1/5
I have been playing the tournaments against the football teams in the game and I have screenshots where they scored way less than I did during the whole game yet they come out ahead with more points than I did. Seems like they are using common core math or something to pull numbers out of thin air. I want my rewards that I rightfully should have won. Either the developers need to right this situation or they will see me spend NO money on bonus rolls.
Something could improve 4/5
Overall I love the game but the showdowns are so infuriating! They’re almost impossible to beat and the Christmas ones the snowflake guy got atleast 3 Yahtzee’s each time I tried to beat him when in reality that doesn’t freaking happen.. yea a person may get that lucky here and there but not every freaking time it’s so frustrating to keep kinda close then that happens y’all should really improve those.. not saying to make it super easy but atleast make it achievable to beat them in maybe 1-2 tries it will definitely get and keep more people interested longer!
What a mess! 1/5
Not a fan of this new version. The only good thing is the score card being on one page. If find the new layout confusing and a mess. I will probably be deleting this app that I have enjoyed for years!
Very fun but needs an update. 4/5
If you like playing, and have multiple matches with other players, the app lists the matches from newest to oldest. This requires players to go back to their home screen to play the oldest matches. Also, when a player agrees to a rematch the other player can also rematch creating two new separate games. Just trying to keep up with my matches, I’ve spent nearly 30-45 minutes daily just playing Yahtzee. Also, with the new dice claw feature, players should not be awarded with dice they already own. I’ve been playing this game for over two years now and I would like to keep playing. If these changes can’t be made I may quit playing Yahtzee. 😕
ZERO STARS 1/5
Everything about this app is all wrong!!!! Start over I’m finishing games and deleting!!!! I’ve read all the reviews & no need to repeat what everyone else has already said and I agree with all the zero, 1 star people!!!! Not worth playing anymore took the fun away!!!!
Fun but rigged 3/5
I love Yahtzee but I'm convinced that if you don't pay for the extra prize dice that you'll never win a game or win extra rolls on the scratchers. So if you're not going to pay and you're ok with never being the winner, than this is the game for you.
Pop-up AIDS and RNG. 1/5
By Family jewels nuggooottree
Equally bad. Get screwed over from “randomized” dice. I love Yahtzee. I hate this ad app.
Miss a lot from the old one . also why aren’t the Vikings in the NFL dice...
Feeling meh. Can we have a happy medium please? 3/5
I want to start by saying that even if some of the changes were a bit unnecessary and a little juvenile, I don’t mind the new Yahtzee and still enjoy it. I really like being able to see the full board on the screen and the scratchers are great. However, I think the way the games are organized is really irritating. I have to keep backing out after each turn to play the games that have been waiting the longest and the requested games and high roller challenges aren’t in order with the rest. It is difficult to keep up and it feels more time consuming to play now. It doesn’t make sense why they are organized this way. It is probably my biggest complaint. I do like all the challenges but don’t understand why they are so difficult to beat. I will keep playing. There is a lot of good, but I feel frustrated and keep hoping each update has changes that bring back some of the old game. There was a simplicity to the older game that I miss
You can’t finish a game, because it has so many pop ups. It is very annoying. I have tried to uninstall, and reinstall the game several times, I still get the same result.
By Bunky girl
Such an amazing game can not put it down lol still need to learn the game forgot a lot from many many years ago but still fun anyways
Fix your game 1/5
I can’t tell you how many times I get an “error can’t submit your score and the game is ruined until I forfeit”. Pathetic in this day and age.
Barely stand a chance with the showdowns without extra rolls. Don’t get enough dice for what money you want to shell out. I’m lucky to win 3 dice with 20 scratchers. Ridiculous.
Cool but so fixed 1/5
It’s impossible to win any of the towers against the computer so I dint advise trying. Even if you make a decent score the computer will get Yahtzee twice. It’s sad and frustrating that it is an unfair game. I understand wanting a challenge but this is impossible even with dice purchased! Waste of time and effort! I wish I had read reviews sooner! The format is great and this could be a fantastic game but I doubt the developers are gonna really care to listen.
No matter how good you are at Yahtzee, ultimately, it’s a game of chance. So how fair or realistic is it to have these showdowns and characters get 3-4 Yahtzees in one game? It’s so hard to beat any of these characters that it’s just not even that fun. You just can’t win without a bunch of extra rolls, and that’s not fair and also at that point it’s not even really Yahtzee anymore. I just play with my husband and we have fun, but it would be nice if the game was more realistic and you didn’t have to jump through so many hoops to try and beat just a few characters. When I can score in the 300’s regularly and still not win, it’s pretty crappy.
By Go UVa
So many ads and different things to buy. Why can’t they just make the game?
Also - some ads can’t be skipped and some buggy ads require an app kill/restart.
New badges are ugly 4/5
Really don’t like the new rivalry badges. They look silly and cartoonish compared to the previous ones.
Don’t wast your time 1/5
1. To hard to win challenges
2. There are way to many adds and they want you to purchase more to be able to compete in the challenges
3. Adds adds and more adds. Have to watch at lest four or more adds per game.
I got this app thought I would love to play it but it was a wast of time watching adds and I just finished deleting app. Don’t make the same mistake I did in downloading this app!!!!!
Rip off 1/5
By JESUS Freak4ever
They should have try to improve the old version before releasing this new version. Still so many bugs in the app. With the animations it slows the game down so much. When I get the weekly prize boxes and it says I got a dice masters scratch card, the cards does not show up in my scratch card area, same with the classics scratch cards.
Update: dice master scratch still not working, it says that I got a dice master scratch but then doesn't show up. Also where are the diamonds that was earned? Do not see it anywhere in the App or use for it.
Update 1-13-2018: I bought 3 master dice scratcher for 100 rolls and did not receive the scratchers... what a rip off
Why is it taking the extra dice I earn? 3/5
The game says you need 3 dice to continue twice I earn more than 3 dice and it takes all for instance I earned 6 and it said I needed 3 to do the challenge it took all 6 not 3 and then I earned 8 it took all 8 and not the 3 it was supposed to this game is ripping me off
Weekly Challenges 2/5
By [Eurodance Lover]
With this new updated version, you can’t even finish the weekly challenge unless you play almost 24/7. Ever since I upgraded, I have yet to finish the weekly challenge
Look, I think it's great that the lead developer let their 12-year-old learn how to program by creating this game...because there is no way an adult would think this is good. Graphics on top of graphics on top of flashy splashes - it's so freakin obnoxious. Oh, and it crashes constantly. Don't bother. Fun game, but not in this company's hands.
Use to work 1/5
I use to love the app but now, none of my dice show up ever. I pay money for them and can’t even see them. Exactly why, I don’t purchase anything on the app anymore.
Too hard 3/5
I like the new format....but way too hard to win new dice. And when you finally do, it’s most likely one you already have. Not very helpful in making me want to continue playing. Just saying.....
Great game, a few tweaks would make it better. 4/5
Overall it is great, user interface is updated from last version and works great, all dice shown on one screen is also a plus. Suggest speeding up transition from one game to another to help get through all games quickly. Also suggest clearing opponents roll from top of the screen faster so you can see all your open rolls right away.
I enjoy playing the game with real people, but it’s nearly impossible to beat the animated characters in the “towers” after the first 3 or 4 levels. It’s ridiculous how many Yahtzees they always end up getting every single time. It’s not even enjoyable playing them when it feels like all they do is roll high numbers every time. It’s not even realistic.
Good graphics but bad game 1/5
I was hoping to play Yahtzee but the game played for you. It vibrates the suggested dice to keep just because there are more than one of that kind or because it's almost a straight or full house. However, it doesn't take into consideration whether or not you already have it. In the end, it forces you to keep 3 fives, for instance, even if the only category you have left are sixes. Terrible programming! Let the player play his own game. 😠
Fake players 2/5
First I want to say at least the game is quicker now except when the opponent’s dice hide the top of the board. My main 2 gripes... Please move the “restart turn” button somewhere else!!! 😡 Many wasted bonus rolls because the bottom is too close to the roll button!!! Also sick of the same player names that are adjective + animal + 4 numbers like happyspider3961 or cuterabbit2125. Are these even real players??? Miss the old version. It was simpler without the silly kid graphics.
Shell of what it once was 1/5
Get used to impossible to beat Dice Masters that play with loaded dice. The computer player has far better odds against you. Only way to compete is to use an extra roll every turn, which is NOT Yahtzee. This ability for the app to tip the odds in the software’s favor makes it hard to trust that the people that challenge you aren’t playing with the same luck. The simple friend v friend gameplay is an afterthought. You can no longer review past games so if you lose on an opponent’s last turn, you can’t see how they were able to win. The rewards (scratchers) aren’t rewarding whatsoever. The more you play, the less you win, meanwhile you have watched so many of their ads. (Also, read these poor reviews and then explain to me how this game has a 4.4 review on the App Store)
The original Yahtzee is so much better 2/5
By Arnold Diaz
Go get the board game out of the closet! You'll remember how much fun Yahtzee is when you start playing this version.
However, within a few hours of gameplay, you'll be annoyed by the delays, the complexity of choosing games and tournaments and such.
Then, finally, you'll recognize that the gameplay algorithm for random dice rolls is seriously flawed, which will ultimately get you to play less and less.
The last flaw is the most unforgivable, because you'll realize that playing a more challenging opponent doesn’t mean that opponent makes better statistical choices. No, it means you'll inexplicably be given worse rolls of the dice.
Yahtzee depends, like so many games of chance, on, well... chance. The makers don’t want to rely on that, however, so you get nothing of the real sense of dice. No, you won’t have a 1/6 chance of rolling a 4 when you need it. The game decides that, if you're playing s better opponent you suddenly won’t be able to roll that 4.
As I said, get the board game out of the closet and play that way. It's a much better experience.
way too much animation 2/5
I spend most of my time in the app waiting for animation to finish so I can playing my next turn.
If I were to be honest this game seems rigged. The levels are very hard to beat and to get anywhere you have to spend money. Within half an hour of the game I was already annoyed and tired of it. Not a recommendation for anybody looking to get anywhere in Yahtzee
Impossible to win 2/5
When playing the tournaments, it purposely screws you over unless you have above a certain score. In the last two games I've played, I had 312 points while my game sponsored tower opponent had 238. The only number it hadn't completed was in the lower section. Even with the additional 35 points (which was a long shot) I still would've won. But it doesn't show you the last roll and next thing I know it tells me I lose. The game suddenly had 355. But yet when I play real opponents (for little to no prize) it's suddenly easy to get exactly what I need. It's not fun when the algorithm purposely shuts you out unless you score in the range it thinks you should to move up the tower.
