EA Mobile sent out a press release letting people know that a version of YAHTZEE is now available for the iPad. In addition to the standard game of chance and compromise, there are additional gameplay styles to choose from. There’s one called “Duplicate” and another called “Rainbow.” And then there’s the one called “Duplicate Rainbow” which I am totally freaking out about. How is that even possible?!
Laugh, if you must, but I really like YAHTZEE. When I was a kid, we had a travel set that we’d take on vacations and that was pretty much what we did. Even the eventual acquisition of a Gameboy was never much of a distraction from the dice game. I think I’ve always liked figuring probability. I’d probably pick it up at $5, which I could do today if I felt so inclined (and had an iPad).
