Poker Dice

If you love Yahtzee, Poker Dice is a cross between the traditional 5-dice games and poker. The dice not only have numbers, they have suits and like a poker game, Poker Dice gives points for two pairs and various types of flushes. Where a real casino poker game would be dipping its fingers into your poker pot, Poker Dice just brings you dice-rolling fun.

Poker Dice game gets a Thumbs Up! Killer Dice, the precursor to Poker Dice, was 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.”

Several game variations have been added to Poker Dice since the ChezMark review and Madame Murghi the Fortune Teller offers double the fortunes. Poker Dice received a 4 cow rating from Tucows, and a five star rating from Paul’s Picks.

Poker Dice game variations include:

  • Traditional
  • Down the Line
  • Acey Deucey
  • Roll for Par
  • Early Bird
  • Face Off
  • Hearts
  • Lots of Zingers
  • Wild Cards

With Down the Line you must score each category in order, Aces, then Twos, then Threes, right down the line. Acey Deucey scores a special bonus for any roll that includes a one and two. Roll for Par puts a golf lover’s twist on the dice game… the person with the LOWEST score wins. Wild Cards lets you set the number and suit for each Wild Card dice. Lots of Zingers allows you to score Zingers over and over again with each additional Zinger giving you a free extra turn. The other variations offer their own unique spins to the Poker Dice game.

Madame Murghi the fortune teller appears in all her wicked glory if you get a high score with over 1000 fortunes in the game: hippie fortunes, sour-pussed fortunes, happy fortunes, and prophetic fortunes from the Madame’s crystal ball.

To bid you farewell, the game offers happy tidings as you leave. The happy thoughts are fully editable. You can add, edit, and delete them to suit your pleasures.
