Cool. Just in time for me to go sit at a car dealer service department for a couple of hours.
Too bad I dont know how to play it,looked like a nice game though. :( wish they also made more xbl games free. :(
Me too, I even tried the instructions, I'm still lost. Btw, say hi to Frank Lampard for me ;)
XBL games cost a fortune to develop
For the life of me, I will never understand this game! No, no...don't explain it to me, I don't want to know.
That's a nice game, but I wish there was a way to prevent encountering AI players online. If I'm playing online, it's because I want to play with humain players, not with this ridiculously easy to beat AI.
I declare yahtzee!
Download now, learn how to play later.
Interesting that it has different versions of yahtzee. I haven't played this often, but a nice game to have and play online with random people.
