ZenDice


Zendice 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 of 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.

ZenDice supports up to four players at a time, computer or human. To select an automated opponent, check the box next to a player name twice until you see the avatar of a green space invader. To change player name, simply click on the name you want to change. The game keeps a list of most used names.

ZenDice 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. This suggest system can be turned off in the settings. 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 trough a TopDown game without zeroing out a score.

Zen Dice Great game! I play it all the time. The company was very quick to respond to my question on how to access the game's menu on my new Galaxy Note 4.

Lowering rating for new issues Just wish I would have known the free version was going away. A little notice would have been nice. But a really good game with lots of options. Recent issues: animated hand no longer displays on rolls. Have disabled and re-enabled. Nothing. More importantly, a lot of wasted space and everything crammed into smaller area. Atrix2.

Good game but Way computer biased, the last round i played, the computer finished with minus bonus from 1-6 i checked myself, and he still got 90 bonus! I got the same, from forgoing my yachtzee to get a total of +18 in the bonus and he got the same from not hitting even 0! How fair is that! And another round they hit yachtzee first roll! And it got to 274 by the time it finished, which is impossible, as yachtzee maxes at 100 (with 6 ones)
