App description: BB Yatzy - a fun game of dice for the whole family

1-4 players local on device or on multiple devices within the same wi-fi network.

The game has two main game types:

* Yatzy - 15 different scoring combinations, 5 dice, 3 rolls each turn.

* MaxiYatzy - 20 different scoring combinations, 6 dice, 3 rolls each turn and lets you save up unused rolls

These are then divided into two modes again:

* Free mode: lets you decide where to best put your points which gives it a strategic element as well.

* Forced mode: you have to go from top to bottom, except if you get the Yatzy/MaxiYatzy combination.

You also get to choose from 3 different looks for the playarea and the game will remember this as your favourite.

There is also the option to turn on or off bonus for throwing multiple yatzys. This means that if you have scored one yatzy already and roll a new one and put it in a category you would normally get points for you get an additional bonus to the yatzy post.

It has Open Feint and Game Center leaderboards so you can compete against your friends for highest score and a local highscore table for offline use.

The game has a clean, simple and easy to use interface wich remembers your past settings so you can quickly set up a new game.

BB Yatzy runs on ipad, iphone and ipod touch units and has support for retina display

I did make a youtube clip from v1.1 that shows it some. But it seems it cuts out some frames or something of animation, probably something with the conversion to youtube. I am new at video capture and such but looking into it so I can make a better one The dice rolling is a basic blurred animation, quick and simple.

anyway, the clip if you want to take a look:
