  1. Even more so than the other Hasbro Family Game Night titles, this is really for fans, and should please anyone who considers Yahtzee to be fun.

    A sharp iteration of an old favourite; Yahtzee is a videogame adaptation of the utmost fidelity and benefits from the indelible charisma of Mr Potato Head.

    If you’ve played the real thing, you’ve all but played Hasbro Family Game Night’s version. Aside from a few differing modes and an online portion it is an extremely authentic replication of the game many of us have played at some point in our lives.

    Opinions of value aside, online play is presently broken. It is difficult if not impossible to play Scrabble to Yahtzee to completion before Opinions of value aside, online play is presently broken. It is difficult if not impossible to play Scrabble to Yahtzee to completion before a mysterious EA-based server error brings the fun to an abrupt end, Unless you have seen a news story saying this has been fixed, I implore you to wait to purchase this game to avoid potential loss of points and/or sanity. It's a pity such great games were hindered by an unfortunate networking problem. Full Review »

    I cannot recommend anything with the name Hasbro. I will never buy anything Hasbro and very weary about buying anything EA. EA canceled theI cannot recommend anything with the name Hasbro. I will never buy anything Hasbro and very weary about buying anything EA. EA canceled the online support for this game which is the only reason I bought it. So I have many of these hasbro games, battleship, yahtzee and others that cost me 800 points and are now utterly worthless, Id give this - rating if I could. DO NOT BUY! Full Review »

This is best d/l'ed by people w/ friends on live, or someone who wants something to play for 20 minutes without worrying about checkpoints. Please ignore idiots like the guy above me droning on about "real friends" and dignity. He lost that when he wrote that post. He fails to consider that many of us have "real" friends that live out of state, and there's not too many "n" work spewing 12 year olds playing scrabble and yahtzee out there. Well worth the price if you enjoy simple time-waster games like solitare and minesweeper. Not for those you want a full gaming experience. Full Review »
