Yatzy Ultimate Free is one of the best Windows 8, Windows 10 Yahtzee apps you will find at this very moment in the Windows Store. As the developers himself says: “this game is easy to learn but is difficult to become a master“, which sums up the whole point in Yahtzee. There are two modes: Yatzy and Maxy Yatzy. The graphics are pleasant to the eye and the sound doesn’t bother your game. There are also statistics and instructions available as special features.

The latest version got support in Microsoft Store, also Gameplay optimization and bug fix.

As you understood from the title, this app isn’t a Windows 8, Windows 10 Yahtzee app per se, but rather a “companion” Yahtzee app, if I can say so. If you have a Windows 8, Windows 10 tablet nearby, you can use this app to keep the score while you play Yahtzee with your friends. Quite clever and pretty basic and simple to use.

[UPDATE] This game has no longer received support in Microsoft Store.

Magical Yatzy [Free]

Your goal is to get as many points as possible by collecting different poker hands of five dices. Possibility to use “magical artifacts” to improve your score makes this game more fun. Magical Yatzy – this is a great opportunity to test your luck and have fun.

This version of the game was developed with a physics engine so the dice roll out of a cup and bounce on the table with realistic forces of nature.  The object of Yatzy is to score the most points by rolling five dice to compile various required dice combinations. Your score is easily recorded by clicking on the appropriate cell on the scorecard corresponding to the selected dice combination.
