Yatzy is a popular dice game and while it’s most popular in the Scandinavian countries, the variants of the game are popular in various regions of the world.
Yatzy for Windows Phone is a fun and addictive game, and judging from the reviews on the Windows Phone Store, it’s obvious that the game is quite popular as well. Partnering with the awesome folks at myAppFree, the developer has made Yatzy free till tomorrow.
The game is pretty accommodating even if you don’t know much about the classic game. You start the journey as a Newbie, and advance to higher levels with little luck while using your skills. You can select from your favorite game configuration - Yatzy (Scandinavian - 5 dice), Maxi Yatzy (6 dice), and American Yatzy (5 dice).
The game allows you to play online against the best opponents from around the world and your buddies or in a bet mode taking risks to win more. It also supports multi-tabling for up to four games at any given time. The game maintains a history of all past games and statistics and allows you to share your results on your social networks.
The online mode is quite engaging and you can search for your friends who are already playing Yatzy Ultimate and send them buddy requests. When you fire up the game, see who’s online from your buddy list and invite them to play with you.
Since the game otherwise goes for $0.99, it’s ad-free, however, you can grab it for free till tomorrow – that’s 12:00 noon on May 1 (UTC+1 London time). Download Yatzy for Windows Phone 7.x and Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store.
Whether you're playing alone, with friends on the same device taking turns, or taking on opponents online, Yatzy is an addictive game and with interesting graphics and sound effects, it’s a game I would recommend even if you were paying for it.
