Introducing iYacht with Shake & Roll Detection!
How can iYacht make an already great classic dice game even more fun?
By allowing players to Shake & "Throw" their iPhone to shake and roll the dice!
QUICK GAME PLAY – No scrolling necessary, you can always see your entire score sheet. No waiting on the dice, you control how long they shake. Bonus Tracking, frees you from having to do the math. If you have a couple minutes to kill, you have time for a quick game of iYacht!
BONUS TRACKING – Bonus tracking keeps you informed of what affect your scoring selections have towards earning the 35 point bonus associated with the Aces through Sixes scoring categories!
AUTO-SORT GAME DICE OPTION – Game Dice are automatically sorted, making them easier to quickly evaluate!
LAYOUT OPTION – Do you prefer the Shake & Roll Die at the bottom or the top, for easier one-handed play? It’s your choice!
THEME OPTION - Choose the color theme you like!
SMART SCORESHEET – The Smart Scoresheet constantly updates each of the scoring categories with the points that can be earned for the current dice, allowing you to quickly evaluate your scoring options.

So, what is Shake & Roll Detection?
Shake & Roll Detection makes iYacht different from other dice games. When you play with real dice, you shake them and then you roll them. When you play iYacht, you do the same.
To “shake” the dice, just shake your iPhone. Shake it left and right, up and down, back and forth, all around – just shake it! And, just like with real dice, shaking is optional.
To “roll” the dice, just turn your iPhone to landscape orientation, watch the dice slide off the screen and then make a motion similar to throwing dice at a craps table, snapping your iPhone back to portrait orientation and “throwing” the dice back onto the screen. It's a lot of fun!
What are the benefits of distinguishing between shaking and rolling? First, it provides more opportunity to undo your selections. You can stop shaking the dice, restore them to what they were when you started shaking them and then you can either change which dice you are holding or which scoring category you just selected. Second, it allows the players to influence the randomness of the dice. Some people might shake the dice a lot, some might shake them a little and some might not shake them at all. This constantly alters the output of the random number generator! If you don’t feel like shaking and “throwing” your iPhone, you can always use the Shake & Roll Die that’s located on the bottom corner of the screen instead.… Expand
