Yahtzee Comes to iPod

Hasbro's classic dice game Yahtzee is now available for third-generation iPod nanos, iPod classics and fifth-generation iPods.

The new game can be purchased from the iTunes Store for US$4.99.

Yahtzee is a Poker-themed game in which you have to score the most points by rolling five dice to make combinations in thirteen rounds. It's been a popular family game since it was first introduced in the mid-1950s.

The iPod version, developed by Electronic Arts and licensed from Hasbro, includes multiple game modes and rule sets, help menus and hints, the ability to play against a friend or against a computer component with multiple skill levels, automatic score keeping, an auto-save function and custom sound effects and music.
