How ‘bout a running average?
I agree that this game is true Yahtzee (without all the silly gimmicks in similar App Store offerings.) But a running average would make more sense than the “highest score” BS. Since this game is most often played solitaire, I think a Player’s Average score should be offered. Simply the total of scores over a given (or selected) number of games divided by the number of games played. If I knew my average score at the end of, say 100 games played, The game could talky a record of that avg score, and I could try to beat it over the next 100 games played. A running all-time average would be a nice “easter egg.” It might be nice for users with devices upon which multiple family members play to have players identify themselves with a sign in, so separate running averages could be kept for each user. —bb
I feel like Boy Howdy are the good guys/gals of mobile. The ads are minimal, which is great. I like to play while listening to podcasts. Other games have ads that pause my audio, which means I constantly have to switch apps to unpause. All Boy Howdy games I’ve played do a good job of getting out of your way, and I appreciate that. Plus they make good games!
Agree with Gojia Guy
The random generator, as previous reviewer G.G. pointed out, has a problem. The un-held dice on a third throw will turn up the same way too often. I hope the makers can solve this as Boy Howdy is the simplest Yahtzee/Yatzy to use - without all those annoying alternative games and gimmicks. AND a second complaint here: how hard could it be to incorporate individual stats that cover the long haul? Comparing one’s single highest score today or this week or ever is pretty meaningless, since everyone knows that scores above 400 are a function of pure luck (multiple Yahtzees), and that those who hold the very highest scores probably have little other life! So ... keep my individual stats, so that I can challenge myself to beat MY highest score or improve on my AVERAGE SCORE over time.
