Cards again for everybody! Thumbs Up! Killer Dice blessed as one of ChezMark's MacPicks! From ChezMark: "Here are some of the best or most interesting additions to the InfoMac Shareware Archives for the week of October 19-25, 1998, and given an honorable mention again for the week of April 17-23, 2000.
Killer Dice... It's not just 'Yahtzee' -- it's Yahtzee with inspirational messages! Roll, pick, and score your dice combinations to beat your competitors. Includes automated rolling of the die and addition. Inexplicably gives you positive meditations at the end of the game."
5k Poker Dice is now available for Mac PPC, OSX and has just been brought to the Windows world. 5k Poker Dice is a rewrite of Killer Dice, which was chosen as a ChezMark Mac Pick twice. 5K Poker Dice received a 4 cow rating from Tucows, and a five star rating from Paul's Picks.
For those who love Yahtzee, 5K Poker Dice is a cross between poker and the traditional 5-dice games, with several variations. Traditional, Down the Line, Wild Cards, Roll for Par, Early Bird, Face Off, Acey Deucey, Hearts, and Lots of Zingers.
Down the Line is a tough nut to crack, as you must score each category in order, Aces, then Twos, then Threes, right down the line. Wild Cards includes wild cards if you are lucky enough to get one (or more); you set the number and suit. Each roll offers new chances at more wild cards. Lots of Zingers allows you to score Zingers over and over again in the same game, each additional Zinger giving you a free extra turn, even in multiplayer games.
Roll for Par offers a golf lover's twist on the game... the person with the LOWEST score wins. Scoring in Roll for Par is the number of rolls it takes to fulfill all the categories. Acey Deucey offers a special bonus for any roll that includes a one and two. And the other variations offer their own unique spins to the game.
High scores bring out Madame Murghi the fortune teller to tell your fortune. Over 1000 fortunes are stuffed into the game: happy fortunes, sour-pussed fortunes, and prophetic fortunes from the Madame's crystal ball. For those of you who loved Killer Dice, this is the logical sequel, with several variations and added categories to score in, and the introduction of Madame Murghi the fortune teller in all her wicked glory.
And to bid you farewell, the game offers happy tidings as you leave. The farewell tidings are fully editable. You can delete, edit, and add to them for your own pleasures.
