|About the game|
|SuperYatzy is a dice game like such games as Yacht, Yot, Generala, Cheerio, Yatzy, and Yahtzee (Yahtzee trademarked by Hasbro).|
You roll the dice to get different combinations in order to score as many points as possible. The dice can be rolled up to three times each turn (or four, depending upon which version of the game you're most familiar with) to try to make one of the 18 possible scoring combinations. There are 18 rounds in a game, during which the player chooses which scoring combination is to be used in that round. Once a combination has been used in the game, it cannot be used again.
Because there are tons of different rule variations, there is an option to choose the version that your family played when you were growing up. Select your game type from "Normal" (three rolls), "Easy" (four rolls), "TopDown" (you get four rolls, but you have to score everything from the top of the score sheet from ones down to Yatzy in sequence), "BonusScore" (in which scores in the lower section made in one roll receive double points), "RollSaver" (unused rolls are passed to the next round), "5-dice Classic", "NordicClassic" games or an easy variation of BonusScore and RollSaver games with 4 rolls.
SuperYatzy will suggest which dice to hold and which score to score. This is great for kids. Of course the player can always select something else. The game provides a lot of different game styles, and is a fun way to pass the time.
Each rule variation has a set of achievements and you can collect a trophy for each achievement you complete.
Be the first to break a 1000 points in a Bonus&Saver game or make it through a TopDown game without zeroing out a score.
|Press the roll button to roll the dice. Move dice you want to keep to the hold area. You can click or slide them between the hold and roll area. The computer will suggest a score that matches the dice you have. If you want a different score, you can select it by tapping in the scoresheet. When you get the dice for the score or run out of rolls, you score by clicking on the score button . If you do not have the dice for the selected score, you will get zero points in it. If you select a wrong score by accident, you can use the undo button to undo and select a different score. You can not undo the last roll in the game!|
