Don’t need all the hoopla 1/5
It’s simple game and it should have stayed that way. I’m seriously investigating how to get back to the earlier versions.
A couple of pet peeves with this and the previous “update”.
The column showing the opponents choices from previous rounds is a waste of space. And on a couple of occasions has caused me to save the wrong dice.
Why are the “Tips” in a foreign language?
Upgrades should be improvements not just add gingerbread!
STOP CLOSING DOWN THE APP 1/5
I've been playing this a lot for the last couple of weeks and I love the game, but the constant glitch to the home screen pisses me off. Definitely plan to try the original version and see if it's any better.
Please listen to reviews! 1/5
Everyone is feeling the same way. This upgrade is disappointing. What is the album for anyway?? And the WOWS & AWESOME plays... 🙄
Give me back the score I need to beat dice masters.
I used to spend money but not any more.
Will delete (at least my husband will be happy with this upgrade)
I DO NOT like the new version of the game. So many glitches, too hard to meet challenges, and not as user friendly as the old version. The latest glitch has you rolling once, then kicking you out of the game before you can make a play to start another game.
Don’t waste your time 1/5
To many rolls are repeated. Very unrealistic game play. Built to try and get you to use bonus spins. Most importantly it drains your battery faster than any game I have ever played.
Entertaining but aggravating 3/5
Pretty well put together game. Gameplay is intuitive & works with relatively few glitches. I’m left feeling that the dice randomization is anything but random, however. Filled every slot but 4 of a Kind? You can bet you’ll roll straight after straight. Fill up Full House in your first round? You’re going to be overwhelmed with pairs ever after. Only need two 6’s to make your bonus score and beat your opponent? Good luck getting even one, even with bonus rolls & restarting your turn. It’s consistently predictable, not just confirmation bias here; it’s statistically improbable that it is happening randomly. I can only assume rolls are weighted to keep players paying for the bonus rolls & retries.
My main gripe is with the battery drain. Keep your charger handy.
Great game get rid of the ads 4/5
It gets old to be forced to make a purchase to get rid of the ads
Good app 3/5
1. Do not combine suggested games with ongoing games on the home screen. Its annoying.
2. Streamline the UI, theres too much going on.
3. Allow players to assign rolls the old way. The addition of the 'PLAY' button in the bottom right corner of the game screen is a (minor) inconvenience.
4. The prize claw is an awesome feature.
5. Thanks for the hard work, it really is a great app.
6. The dice master showdowns are now rigged harder than they used to be. Pointless to play them anymore. Too many alternatives out there, you guys really need to let the vs. AI be fun again and stop trying way too hard to force in app purchases.
Design flaw 3/5
You need to move, Start a new game, to an out of the way place. It’s aggravating when you accidentally tap it and then you can’t forfeit until moves have been made.
New Yahtzee 5/5
I love the new Yahtzee. I’ve it enjoyed it a lot.
Not as fun as the old version 1/5
I am not liking the new version. You have to wait almost 3 hours after playing the showdown to play again and u only get to go once for free. Why not a couple of chances before having to wait or use dice to play like in the old version? I played the old version all the time and am very unhappy with the new one. Needs more free plays on showdown and more options to win dice. Will possibly remove game all together if not better in next release. How sad!
Yuck with a capital Y!! 1/5
I’d give it zero stars if I could. It’s like a plastic surgery that’s gone horribly wrong! I loved the old version! I even spent quite a bit of cash at times to buy bonus rolls to play tournaments. It was a lot of fun. The new version is HORRIBLE!! First, there is WAY too much going on on the screen and it’s all geared towards 5 year olds. Second, you don’t/can’t win bonus rolls anymore- just minute amounts of XP. That means I can’t play tournaments unless I spend LOTS OF MONEY- which I’m sure is their goal anyway. Lastly, there is no use for the huge amount of diamonds I amassed in the old game. It’s really sad, as an adult this is one of the few games I really loved to play. I’ve even met some very nice people with whom I’ve had some lovely conversations with. I went back to playing the old version and will stay on that one as long as it’s around even though my diamonds are now useless and they don’t offer all the dicemaster tournaments. At least it’s not an assault on all your senses, geared towards a 5 year old, and in general a horrible sad ripoff! Bad decision game designers😡☹️👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
Download it 5/5
Good game to play while traveling and sitting in the airport.
Of course. Another game that cheats encourage you to buy ridiculously priced in-app purchases. Next.
Bring back the old 1/5
By Lene cuisine
Is it just me or the weekly goal seems like it takes longer to reach?! And the dice masters are even harder, almost impossible to beat. I hate that I can’t use my diamonds to buy dice. What was the point of doing away with the diamonds! I liked the old version better . All the extra graphics seems very unnecessary and child like. I think I will take the advice of a previous review and use the older version until I’m forced out.
Less action 2/5
I’ll start on a positive note. Seeing the whole board is great. Now for some issues. It is very tedious to have “view” games default on the home page. I’m there to play, not see who hasn’t taken their turn yet. Start on “play” then allow me to navigate to se the status of other games. When in challenge mode, the announcement banner at the top reminding me that I have 48 hours with the clock counting down is annoying and takes up to 5 seconds to disappear. I know there’s a timer, I chose to play a challenge. You can play through that but can’t see the 1’s or 3-of-a-kind during that time. They delay in showing the other person’s turn is another unnecessary delay. Show their dice and keep the green dot to indicate where they scored. I don’t need to sit and watch the dice float across the board. They also temporarily obscure the top slots. Also, the positive reinforcement of “wow” and other such phrases on anything less than a Yahtzee is another waste of time. This has become a game for kids and not serious Yahtzee players who want to get in, take their turns, and move on. I still play my old version about 1/2 the time.
Rip off 1/5
199 scratch offs and won only 37 bonus rolls, what kind of deal is that?
New Yahtze 5/5
By Diamond jewel!
My most favorite game ever! I play it all the time now I found it in my App Store. So many ways you get to play. Scratch off, Tournament, my friends on Facebook, I can have them pick me new person to play. Awesome game! Love it! Thanks!
very slow 2/5
i want to enjoy this game and i do for the most part except it runs EXTREMELY slow and makes it difficult to play.
I like the new version, but not the ads. When the ads come up after each game, the x that usually appears on the top right hand corner is never there. No way to get out of the ad except for backing out of game all together and waiting for the ad to time out to be able to go back in and play more. Very frustrating I just want to play the game
Weekly Bonus 3/5
I love Yahtzee. I was perfectly happy with the old version. I don’t mind the hyped up colors or the “Amazing” after I play my points in this updated version. But what does bother me quite a bit is the weekly bonus. I have 20 different games going trying to bust my butt to get my weekly bonus and I barely get halfway there by week’s end. This is extremely irritating! I wish I had not deleted the old version.
No effort to keep rolls random... 1/5
I have many complaints about this app. I can't figure out a way to just play without waiting for someone online. I just like rolling and playing. I don't care about competing with other people. The only way I've figured out how to do this is pass and play but I have to play as 2 people. Also, the rolls repeat themselves during pass and play! I literally will get the same rolls for myself and "player 2". Animations are whatever but I hate having to wait to make a turn just so it can say "Amazing!" When I get a x4 roll or something. It's the same even time and annoying. The app works; so if you want it, download it. It's just not as good as it could be. and I don't care for any of its special features or tournaments or prizes or whatever.
I REMOVED A STAR FROM MY RATING BECAUSE NOW I CAN'T DO PASS AND PLAY. TERRIBLE APP. ANNOYING, ROLLS ARE NOT RANDOM, AND I CAN'T ACCESS PASS AND PLAY FOR OVER 2 DAYS NOW.
Rip off 1/5
Never got free dice for surveys or Hulu subscription. Too hard to get dice to even play. Shouldn’t have to buy anything with real money. Basically impossible to play unless you spend real money. Disappointing.
The opportunity to earn prizes, etc is enhanced. However, the tower competitions are much harder & the weekly challenge is close to impossible. Very discouraging to play a game for fun & relaxation & find it has been changed in such a negative way. There are some positives & negatives to this new Yahtzee.
Entirely to much going on! 2/5
I consider myself an intelligent person, but with all the razzle dazzle going on how can anyone figure this out! Plus side, I like the way the dice rolls.. down side how do I buy more dice and how do I know I can and where are all my stars I worked so hard for from the other game where you gave me no new choices for new dice?? Less is More!
0 Odds 2/5
This game is highly slanted in favor of the developer.
Be prepared to invest money for purchasing rolls in order to compete with the house!
Simple game play but it becomes very frustrating watching six rolls pass multiple times without seeing the numbers you need come up, while the house rolls multiple Yahtzee’s.
Replay factor is very low due to unrealistic odds in favor of the developer!
Ads ruined it 1/5
not such a “fast-play” tournament when ads began popping up mid turn. load of garbage
By Bree Nicolle
Why not just update the graphics on the original Yahtzee, why a whole new app? The animation is a bit much, it seems to take forever to watch and taking time from playing. The layout is a bit confusing but I suppose I’ll get used to it.
I know you have to have ads to support your app, but they pop up in the middle of games and turns almost too frequently. The Final Fantasy app advertisements won’t even let me exit out of the ad anymore unless I play the mini game! I don’t want to play a mini game, I want to play Yahtzee!!! I have to exit out of the app completely to escape that advertisement now because it won’t even give me an option to exit out of the stupid advertisement. Please fix!!!!!!!
Not a grand upgrade 1/5
They removed the ability to purchase dice of your choice. This version is a big battery killer - nonsense animations. The old Yahtzee was much better...and they’ve made it so you cannot collect diamonds in the old version. I’m now keeping a watch on other Yahtzee developers...
Too much 1/5
This app is awful. Simply put: it’s just too much. Too many animations, too much clutter, too many reward options/possibilities, the list goes on. Had the app for about an hour before deleting and going back to the old version. I’m sure at some point they’ll disable the old app but I’ll go without Yahtzee before using this new cluster of an app
How do I remove this mess from my phone, it looks like it was designed by and for 2 year olds
Longer play 3/5
I like this version because there is no limit on how many games you start allowing me to play longer.
The ads have started and I have found no way to upgrade to remove ads. Help!
Please allow a bonus Yahtzee to receive 25 as a full House.
I don’t like how your opponents roll covers up the top of your score sheet. You have to wait until they score and clear the screen. Can you move this so it doesn’t block the Ones and 3X scores on the score sheet?
Last 3 updates exactly the same 1/5
The last 3 updates (5 days ago, 2 weeks ago and 4 weeks ago) are all the exact same description. It seems like all they did was make it more cluttered and added ads.
I agree that everything is way too cluttered and too many different screens to open and close again.
It’s much slower than the original and there are ads every other turn making it so annoying that I believe it was done on purpose so people will spend $4.99 to get 16 rolls ($.31 each) and get rid of said ads.
I don’t mind supporting a free game but when it feels like they make the ads super annoying on purpose I won’t bother with the game anymore.
Bottom Line: not worth your time unless you like waiting on animations, seeing ads every other turn and having to close multiple windows that are unnecessary.
Too slow 2/5
The game is too slow to load graphics. I used to love the game but I don’t have as much patience for this new version.
Hate the new version 1/5
By Stacy Sans
Used to love the game & played multiple times during the day. All the things that made it fun are now gone. What they left is so difficult unless you have 40 hours to play a day & absolutely nothing else to do. Bye Yahtzee!
Ads pop up in the middle of a turn 3/5
I really like this game. It’s a lot of fun and a good time waster. However I have a couple of issues.
1). Ads popping up in the middle of a turn. It didn’t do this when I first started playing the game. It’s really annoying.
2). I’ve challenged players to a game and here it is five days later and I’m still sitting on waiting and there’s no way to forfeit unless they take their turn. I don’t want to forfeit and have that on my game record but I also don’t want 5 or 6 unanswered challenges sitting in my queue.
I wanted to give this game 5 stars but with those 2 pretty big issues I just can’t. Also there’s gotta be an easier faster way to get bonus rolls. Instead of a scratcher at the end of every game why not award bonus rolls.
Will not fix games with bugs 1/5
About 1 week into playing this new version, the purple, blue and black scratchers that I do win will not show up in my inventory. The purple ones are important because you collect dice masters to get coins and new dice in the dice claw. I can no longer collect these because after contacting them many times they accuse me of using all the scratchers and refuse to fix my game. The dice claw also gives out dice you already have, it's a joke. They don't care about longtime players and refuse to listen to complaints. Heard back again from customer service with the same response that my game was fixed in the last update, I tell them it wasn't and they don't want to hear it. Do not download this game. Find another one and not by Scopely.
IT started a game with someone then said *I’d* forfeit 1/5
But I never asked to or started playing someone. I had played this once against an automatic player and wasn’t sure I was going to keep playing. So then when I just went in to the app to see what was going on, it popped up a box and told me someone had JUST challenged me and when I declined it made me cancel the game separately like I was a quitter. I never got a notice someone wanted to play until it threatened I was about to forfeit. I feel like this was just a trick to get me back into the game, threatening to call me a “quitter” against another player if I didn’t. Unacceptable.
Don’t care for it. 1/5
Why do game makers have to always screw up a good thing.You can’t bring much over to the “new game” I had close to 1000 scratchers saved up. I don’t see them in the new game. I also don’t like how the new game is more cluttered. It seems there’s too much going on. Keep it simple people.
Adds are ridiculous 1/5
The game itself is fun but the final fantasy add takes over the game and doesn’t let you go back to the game at all.
Really?! In the middle of my roll?! 1/5
I don’t mind watching ads every once and a while, but right in the middle of my game and roll. How about in between games instead?
Upgrades are awful 1/5
Can’t beat dice masters without using several bonus rolls. Scratchers are worse than ever about winning bonus rolls. And they have made it impossible to get your weekly dice unless you play the game nonstop. Horrible horrible update.
Still so buggy 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.
New Yahtzee with Buddies 5/5
I like the new game! It takes awhile to get use to because there's SOOOO much going on!! You have to figure out what everything is doing and how you do it but it has directions there!! One thing I wasn't very happy with and that's the HELP! It seems to even be taking longer to get an answer to your questions, EXCEPT today! There was a major bug in the game & I told them about it, it was with the scoring which is a MAJOR
Problem, so I felt like they should have gotten back to me SOONER than 2 & 1/2 days!! BUT then I asked something about it, & they do have a REALLY NICE & QUICK support girl named Kai!! She's GREAT!! I like the games, it's fun what they have come up with, I just wish the help was faster to answer!! Thanks!! OHHHHH I DO NEED TO SAY 1 thing I'm NOT happy with and that's the CLAW!! You have to get 3 coins in order to use it, to get new dice!! THE CLAW PICKS OUT YOUR DICE!! I DON'T LIKE THAT AT ALL!!! I HAVE GOTTEN NOTHING BUT CRAPY DICE FROM THERE!!!! Dice that were at the old place you could buy with diamonds!!! If I didn't buy them with diamonds there WHY would I want them now??? It would be SOOOOO much better if we could pick our own dice set! You have to work HARD to get the coins so you should be rewarded with a dice set you LIKE!! OHHH DANG , 1 MORE
thing, the weekly challenge has gone up TOOO high but they give you prizes on the way to get your points, you have to get 32,000, you get 7 prizes from 1-18,000, BUT FROM 18,000-32,000 YOU DO NOT GET ANYTHING AT ALL!!! It's harder to get more points past 18,000 so why wouldn't you get prizes after 18,000?? That makes no sense to me!!! WOW I NEED TO CHANGE THE STARS TO 3 stars!! I had for gotten about all those things!!! It's fun to
Play they just need to change s few things!!! When they get new stuff in I wish there was some place they would put the complete directions so people believe they know what they are doing!!
Changes Not So Welcome 2/5
All these new changes when the older version was working fine!
Jumping “dice dogs” I got a Yahtzee!!!! It was geared to a more mature crowd, now you have graphics and pop ups that slow the game play down. No longer is there a simple format to see your games; scrolling page after page to find what used to be simply listed between a short amount of options.
You now no longer play for “diamonds” that you could purchase desired dice with, we XP (experience points) that boost your level (my thousand of diamonds are now gone). . .I really don’t want to play a claw game to get random dice!!!
And why make it so hard to find finished games and games requested? I’m playing tons of games because you can’t easily find a list of finished games and who has currently requested you to a “challenge”, it’s all mixed up in games currently being played!!!
Playing and winning on the “Events” is nearly impossible, nothing is random anymore, seems like it’s based on purchases of rolls!!!!
I really used to enjoy the previous version, until the developers and owners decide to simplify and break it down a bit, my review score can’t be changed.
New Yahtzee 4/5
I love the improvements! The game works great on my iPhone...
It's great, but... 3/5
The new setup has me baffled a little bit. I like how I can earn more exp and new dice sets, but the way they set up their home menu has me confused. They list the games that have already ended first, then you have to swipe left to view all the games that are going on. It makes no sense! Someone please fix this.
Crashing constantly 1/5
After playing the game for 1 day, it had chosen to crash every time I roll the dice.
Was great before ads took over 2/5
All of a sudden in the middle of rolls apps will pop up and not let you out of them until you click and go to ap store. Really frustrating. Was so cool before this.
