Not Good. 2/5
I wasn't on the old version so I'm not comparing it to anything. Aside from some of the typical ridiculous AI geared towards making you spend money, my biggest complaint is how much the app crashes. It's not occasionally. It's not often or even frequently. It's ALL THE <€*¥ TIME. Deleting and looking elsewhere.
Older Version Was Better 2/5
There is far too much going on in this app. Older version was much easier to navigate.
Penguin Dice 5/5
UPDATE: 2-24-18. All of a sudden game quit working. I have been waiting for people I gave games going with to play for 3 Days now. Nothing happening. What’s going on. Please fix it. I miss playing
All I ever wanted in the old version was the penguin dice. In the new version I don’t see them. Makes me sad I can’t get them now. I saved all my diamonds. And for what. I do love the game. I have over 4160 diamonds. 🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧 Thanks
Will use my dice I collected where it says "restart turn" and then they will disappear and not let me restart my turn. Same thing with coins. They will glitch and disappear even though they weren't even used.
C ya! 2/5
Downloaded. . . . . Deleted. Too bad you just can’t enjoy a simple game without all the compromised, opportunist, and manipulative falderal.
Too much going on 1/5
The game is overly complicated. There’s too much going on. There are so many different prizes, payment options, things you are trying to earn, “boards” to play, that it’s confusing. Am I playing for trophies, coins style 1, coin style 2, coins style 3, xp points, dice, adventure stuff...what?! And the games say “go”, but don’t tell you a price. So you click the go to play and it spends your hard to get dice, without warning! And when you play, what option are you playing? Is it a dice character, a real player, a buddy, or one it keeps picking for me that I can’t get rid of from my screen? It’s very hard to progress to any prizes, though I’m still not sure what prizes I’m trying to win, what I’m playing for in the first place, or what I can even do with those prizes. Just way too many options and it’s way to complicated.
Ads Galore 1/5
The latest ads do not give you a choice to skip them, forcing you to force close the app. Good job, guys.
I had three games going because between rolls, I was waiting over 30 minutes for opponents and it would just sit there. Every single game I played, the same thing.
Don’t waste your time! DELETED!
The other app was better 2/5
This app is so much worse than the other one. Hate it.
Fun for Only a short time 2/5
The graphics on this app are extremely well done. The developers even add ?fun? Challenges I. The game where you play against dice masters to win tokens and such (back to this in a just a bit). Over all this game is fun for a short while, and it is fun to play against friends. Now back to the challenges. The Dice Masters are set up where they are almost impossible to beat!! This makes the game extremely frustrating and the the reason I am removing it from my device. You can keep challenging them by buying coins (with in app purchases of course). But even using coins, the Dice masters always seem to just win by getting 2 or 3 Yahtzee's in their last few rolls. My guess is the dice masters as you (advance in the ladders) get 5,6,7,8 rolls to try to get what they need. Frankly this adds a level of frustration to the game that is simply not worth it.
Not fun 1/5
**Update- although they have improved on being able to obtain the weekly goal- can you guys not make it so obvious the games against DM are fixed? Frustratinggggg!
Bottom line- if you don’t spend money you cannot win showdowns. Maybe I’d be more inclined to purchase if it was at least fun. Once you get to a certain level, it is impossible to get a Yahtzee to beat any of the higher levels. Played all the time but going to delete bc it’s not even fun anymore.
Not random dice 2/5
When you play the computer for prizes the game is rigged towards the house. I have lost way to many times to the computer on the final roll. Also you can’t get what you need in the end to win.
Really fun game but it crashes non stop. Extremely annoying. The other game I have from this maker does the same thing. Constant crashes. And tons of ads!
Don’t like the new format 3/5
Liked scramble with friends way better new screen is slower and harder to go fast
Grandpa’s Yahtzee 1/5
By Ding Ding La La
I just wanted to play CLASSIC Yahtzee. Roll the dice and write down the amount. No gaining, buying or winning anything else. I wanted to play the game I played with my Grandpa. I would have paid for the pleasure. When the “update” box kept showing up I read the reviews of the new version. I kept telling it “maybe later.” Now my games are frozen. I’m done. I’m sad that Milton Bradley let their CLASSIC game be ruined. Why can’t there be more than one app. One for the people who enjoy all the bells and whistles and one for the purists.
Scoring idea 4/5
How about double points for getting a full house, small/large straight or Yahtzee on the first roll?
Problems.. and more problems.. 2/5
Ugh.. not sure how or why with every update more features don’t work.. I thought maybe it would happen once or twice but it has happened about 8 times in a row where when you receive a black scratcher it is there to collect but it doesn’t collect in the upper bar where it shows all the number of scratchers you collected.. so you do not receive what you earned..
When you win one of the guys in the free tournaments and it says here’s a free dice roll, that doesn’t work either..
Several times I have won bigger things that are harder to earn in this game such as 15 bonus rolls or certain dice tokens etc.. it says you won.. when you go to collect, nothing.. and when I have contacted you guys just to give you a heads up to try to fix it I was asked if I took a screenshot lol.. so.. hmmmm.. not sure how I was supposed to know that the game wasn’t going to work properly..? Not only is that the most ridiculous response ever, you never compensate what was lost.. like it’s real money..
I would stop worrying about if people know about the extra dice rolls every 24 hours and start actually fixing the things that make this game horribly annoying and frustrating to play..
Childish interface, removed useful features 1/5
2/23/18 Update: I have 2 or 3 dozen matches going at any given time. Lately, if my opponents roll at all, the my roll once a day, all at the same time: 11:30 pm. Literally. My games only update once a day and all at the same time. The odds that all 30 players make their play once a day at precisely the same moment are insanely low. This has to be a glitch. Please look into it.
I love Yahtzee and I’ve been playing the old version for a while. I was pretty excited to give this new version a try. Some features are more functional than the old version, e.g. the submit button doesn’t obscure other scores boxes on the board.
But there are a lot of features I don’t like:
1.) The biggest frustration is how unrealistically high the weekly goal is. It’s literally twice what it was in the old version. I used to reach the goal and receive new dice in the old version nearly every week, using quite a bit of time to do so. To reach 32,000 points every week in the new version, you’d have to play nonstop all week, ignoring work, school, or any other meaningful responsibility. And there aren’t as many ways to keep playing while you wait for your opponents to roll. The waits to compete with dice masters has doubled and you only get one shot at it, rather than three, before you have to wait for another turn or pay with dice to play right away. It’s not fun to try to reach unattainable goals.
2.) The animations are incredibly juvenile and waste a lot of time. We don’t need a puppy wagging his tail every time we get a Yahtzee or ‘WOW’ and ‘AMAZING’ flashing across the screen after every roll. A fast game is more fun than one filled with childish animations and characters. The overall color scheme is very bright, almost in your face. This isn’t an instructional reading app for toddlers. A clean design with a blend of neutral and bold colors would be more universally appealing.
3.) We have to tap on the screen to collect our winnings after we are shown what we have won. Of course we will accept them; they should deposit automatically. And the darkening screen prior to receiving our winnings and the slow fade up take up unnecessary time.
4.) The scratch cards used to award free bonus rolls but now they almost exclusively award experience points. We already earn points by playing the game. It has become far more difficult to earn bonus rolls. Pushing the store on us?
5.) The diamonds have been removed with no way to convert or redeem them. Many players accumulated thousands of diamonds in the old version and now cannot use them. There is no way to use them in the old version because no new dice have been added to it in months.
6.) The claw game that replaces the diamond system is not effective at all. Once you manage to earn a handful of coins, the claw game repeatedly awards dice you already own and awards the same sets of dice over and over. And it has become incredibly difficult to defeat dice masters in Showdown towers, making it very difficult to earn coins to even try for a new set of dice. I don’t know if anyone else is experiencing this, but I used to play through a tower, with plenty of effort required to do so, a few times before it would expire. Now I rarely make it through once, and that means I don’t earn the free dice set or the dice master scratch card, or the coins which would allow me to try to get new dice. It’s a complete waste of time and effort. Having a system where you can earn currency and then select dice you like (and obviously don’t already own) is far preferable to the joke that is the current system.
7.) Opponents rolls cover the top two boxes in the scoring card making it difficult to plan our own moves as we take our turn. And in the Showdowns against different dice masters, it no longer shows the average score of your opponent. That was helpful in determining strategy and a score to shoot for.
I appreciate the effort that went into a new version, but a lot of it was completely unnecessary for enjoyable gameplay.
Disappointed 😕 3/5
I love this game, it’s practically the only one I play. But on several occasions when I finally win a new frame or a new dice its one I already have. All that work for nothing. Just frustrating
Lag is horrendous 3/5
I love this game so it pains me to do this. But lately, the lag time has been awful between when you hit a button and when it is registered that you did so. There are way too many commercials now too. That might be part of the problem. There is also a ton of hoops to jump through if you want to earn new dice which is annoying. Some minor improvements and this will be a top game again.
I like it but it EATS battery life! 2/5
Really fun, I loved playing Yahtzee when I was younger and still do. But this game chews through your battery like no other! I play other games with more graphics (ab2, pvz) and this one will go through a fully charged battery within an hour total playing time. Can you make an update that takes less battery please?
Just tried the app for the first time. Cluttered, disorganized. Tower opponents are impossible to beat. Sounds like the older versions of this game were better. I’ve had enough, just not a good game. Uninstalling.
I’ve been playing your app for months now. A couple days ago you put in a daily tournament with buddies. One you don’t let us pick OUR buddies.
And when you bet a dice master..... I don’t get it in my awards. And it won’t let me win cause it doesn’t show up.
Change it back. Or get a better programmer.
Lost interest 1/5
The new version of this game has completely killed my desire to play. I find not user friendly at all. To much crap going on. The way you earn rewards is bogus, can’t use it for anything. With the previous version, I played daily.
Too much going on on home screen 3/5
By M from AZ
I have used the old Yahtzee app for several years and it kept prompting me to update to this newer version. I have enjoyed it so far, but in my opinion there is too much going on, too many icons to accidentally tap, too many sparkles. It took me awhile to see where to continue my current games. Now I can’t figure out how to do the showdown challenges. Nor can I do the scratchers! It’s frustrating. If was just a little more simplified that would be nice.
Don’t waste money 1/5
I have played this for a couple of months now and have come to the conclusion that it is very rigged. I get that they need to make money but the tournaments and showdowns are too hard to win. If they were easier more people would play. All I’m usually playing for is dice masters and coins to buy dice so making the game easier to win won’t kill them but would make it more fun. I’m deleting this game!
Love this game But 4/5
Love this game especially when I can get free bonus rolls But I am Beginning to Hate the Edward Jones ads. They have a learn more button and in the upper left hand corner an X to cancel. Unfortunately that’s also where the time display is and it makes it impossible to get out of the ad. Major Bummer. It’s the complete reason that I didn’t rate this ap 5 stars.
Game freeze constantly.
Not as much fun 3/5
The old version was much better. This one freezes up a lot, I uninstalled it and am trying to reinstall it and now that is stuck. What is wrong with this game? It will not upload, thought I would try Dice with buddies, it will not upload either. Please fix it!
Fix game 2/5
Please fix this game. I would take my turn then I wouldn’t hear from the other player for over a week. After that time I get a message that I forfeited even though I took my turn. This game is really messed up.
It’s ridiculous that you have to play the same Dice Masters 50 times to try to beat a showdown tier. I never had this problem on the old app. This is garbage!!!
Not real. 1/5
It is not like playing really artsy at all. If you wait too many advantages. You get the rolls you want almost all the time. You get Yatzy every game you play. We all know that’s not like really artsy. And often times It doesn’t add your score up correctly.
Not like is use to be 2/5
You use to be able to win once and a while against the dice character challenges, I bet I’ve won 1 out of 15! Games are not fun, IMO, if you’re always losing.
I love it. I really enjoying with this game . Chat with friends ! 🍺
Love and hate relationship with game 3/5
Love this game but idk what’s going on with it tonite it keeps closing out and lagging really making me 😡 because it’s the only game I have on my phone. Pls fix issues.
Good but... 2/5
Fun game to play but they base the game on rewards via scratch off tickets. These cards state that you can win up to hundreds of dice. Dice are used as extra rolls and money to wager on games. The problem is they don’t give you dice. I have been playing this for at least 6 months and the most dice I have received on a scratcher that promises hundreds is 3 at one time. And I would guess that 99% of the time you get none.
Not from the reviews I’m reading! 2/5
They claim 4.5 out of 5.0 stars, but that seems as rigged as the dice masters. Most of the reviews I’ve read were 2 or below. Amazing how many fake bots are in the top of the leader boards. Profile numbers don’t come close to adding up. Mega Scratcher is more like Mega JOKE. Spend all week beating four bosses and you too can win 1 bonus roll and 10 XP points. Could have been a fun and exciting game, but someone forgot the golden rule that it’s easier to sell to some who is already a customer than find a new one. Reviews show that long time customers are getting fed up and leaving this version behind.
I feel the single showdowns are rigged. The opposite player always gets 3 yahztees and out of 20 games I have played I never got one. Yet I can play other opponents or showdowns and get them right away. I think it is to force the person to purchase more dice. The developer should fix this.
DO NOT ASK FOR HELP! THEY DON’T RESPOND! 1/5
By Meli Miss Haiti
For THREE DAYS I have been reaching out for support via the app AND the App Store to NO AVAIL which is horrible customer service considering I SPENT MY HARD EARNED MONEY for a game that I’be only has for a total of FIVE DAYS! I was on level 13 and all of a sudden I am now back to LEVEL 1! I’m just going to delete the game and request a refund from Apple because apparently the app developers just don’t seem to care. It constantly says my game won’t load, I can’t login, etc and NO OTHER OPTIONS TO PLAY THIS! I can’t play against someone I don’t know, someone from Facebook, NOTHING. I would give this NEGATIVE 5 stars if I could!
I’m sorry I left you😭 5/5
I feel like I owe you an apology. See a few months ago you up and changed. No warning no anything. You didn’t consider my feelings at all! You took a solid foundation and flipped my entire world upside down. So I did what I had to. I left. I ignored you and played other games. Some that you had even shown me when we were going strong. I spent A LOT of time with Homescapes but lately it just doesn’t feel the same. I believe that in any normal relationship there will be changes and therefore I am coming back to you with arms (hands) wide open knowing we can take whatever the world “rolls” 🎲 our way. I love you forever. Next time let’s just talk it out k?☺️
The game is fun but you can’t win the challenges 3/5
Why can you not win the challenges, what is the infernal point of losing to the game all the time? It does not make people want to come back to your challenges if the game always wins no matter how close the score is. The last roll I’m in the lead and bam the game wins, not to mention at least one Yahtzee every game.
I’m just going to stick with the other players.
Very fun but too many ads 4/5
By Kingdom fun
I love Playing this game. However after about five minutes the pop up ads start and and they never stop. Sometimes they pop up in the middle of your turn which is very annoying because you don’t even see what the result of your latest roll of the dice is. They put a lot of fun aspects Into the game but the number of ads gets very annoying and sometimes makes me stop playing.
Old vs New 1/5
The old version was much better. You got a scratcher after every tournament and dice were the rewards. The rolling of the dice was a lot sharper. The new Yahtzee ....well I attempted to play it and tried my best to “get used” to the changes but after 2 separate installations I finally gave it up on level 73. Really disappointed in the overall functionality of the dice, no scratchers after playing tournaments and if you even win anything off of them, it’s mostly just XP. Lame and slow.
Fun! And challenging! 5/5
By Something Fishy!
Join this game!
This new version is horrible! 1/5
One it eats up your battery because of the graphics, scratchers are worthless, a regular one or the mega ones you get maybe 1 bonus roll, most of the time is Exp, which is useless too, Dice Masters cheat like never before, I rolled 3 Yahtzees in a round and still lost, it’s just not fun, I’ve played the old version and at least was able to complete the tower after a few days, now you can’t get past the first couple of challenges before you just play to lose. The game is simply unfair, and not fun anymore.
This Game Cheats! 2/5
I love this game, but I cannot tell you how many times it has taken my dice. I win dice, purchase them, and earn them by watching ads. When I try to use them, it deducts them without letting me Errol. I will not spend another dime purchasing dice, for you to just cheat me. Fix the game please.
Feeling cheated 3/5
I love this game! Always enjoy playing but lately (last month or two) I have scratchers for Dice claw......each time (at least 3 or more), i have ‘received’ 2 but my account does not add them, my number remains at 2 which as you know, is not enough to get new dice....waiting to get new dice and this is very frustrating!!
I hope this problem can be fixed soon!
Horrible version 1/5
What are you thinking??? I agree with others, it looks like a children’s cartoon version now. What is the purpose of that ridiculous dog?? The screens are too cluttered for sure...i spend way too much time trying to figure out where things are and then more waiting to be able to see my board to play because you put the opponents roll at the top which blocks the top of my board. It’s aggravating to play at all!!! Why would you think people would like the craziness of this version? There are many more games out there I’d rather play...it’s too bad, I used to think it was great!!
Ads are ANNOYING!! 3/5
Love Yahtzee but the pop in ads are so incredibly annoying. I’d pay for the AP not to have the ads!!
No Facebook 1/5
You have to have a Facebook account to sign in. Dumb
