Once or twice a session, it refuses to score a roll correctly, making the game aggravating and frustrating. Recently, it refused to score an all-3 Jahtzee. A bug report to the developer resulted in the following response: "...indeed this is a bug. Somewhere around OSX 10.4, the Quicktime playback (each die is a little movie) got flaky and so one of those dice is not actually a three internal to the program, but the movie stuck. You can actually see [which die is wrong] because the top and right faces look different than the other 4 dice."

Nice, but why would I play this game on my computer if it is not possible to play versus computer players?

Yeah, and it would be great if Jahtzee could be expanded to include both Tripple Yahtzee & Maxi Yahtzee.

Good game! Would love to see a version of Triple Yahtzee by same developer! I used to have a great version on System 9. Can you do it?!!?!

I've thought about doing this. Perhaps version 2 when I get around to it. I'm looking at adding network support for peer to peer games. I'll probably do that first.

Just a note - 2 pairs is not a standard Yahtzee score. It must be a "house rules" type of thing.

Where in the game can you score two pairs? If you can then It's a bug & I'll fix it.

Thanks.

I wish the "locks" on the dice were to the side instead of on top of the dice, or less intrusive. But more importantly, I just scored for a straight of 2-3-4-5-5…
Also, and this may be a local thing, I'm used to having "two pairs" in the list - and it was in another Jahtzee game I tested. But it's absent here.
On the plus side, I like that the sides of the dice have slightly different colours.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but shouldn't you be reviewing the coding of the game & how it's fun or not, instead of reviewing the dices?
