Game help & information
On the internet, people may not be who they appear to be.

When the game has been loaded you are taken to lobby where you see other players on the left and on-going game sessions on the right. Use the big window in the middle to chat with other people in the lobby if you wish.
At top is the challenging area required to start a game. Adjust the game settings how you wish, pick opponent from the list on the left and click on "Challenge player" button. Game starts once the opponent has accepted your challenge. Respectively other players may challenge you and when one do so, it is displayed above the chat window where you can accept or ignore it.
You cay also observe other players' games by picking one from the game list and then clicking on "Watch game" button at the bottom.
Yatzy can be played with coin bets. With this method both players place a bet and the winner collects the whole pot.
When you wish to start a betting game, tick the "Play for coins" box at the top, which will enable a new control where you can enter the bet to place. Betting game players are marked with a coin symbol in the player listing.
Betting game players cannot challenge normal game players.
Dices and score card are displayed upon game start. Score card shows both your scores (on the left) as your opponent's (on the right). Chat window is placed at the bottom and it may be used to communicate between players.
On each turn, player first rolls all five dices and then optionally up to two more times those one wants.
Once you have reached the combination you are happy with, you can try placing it by clicking to a matching row in the score card. Each row can be filled only once - one score sum cannot be placed on the same row more than once. For example, if you get dice faces to show up 4-1-2-2-4, the best scoring is reached by placing it at the row "Two pairs" that gives you 12 points - the total sum of dice faces. If you place it to a row that does not match the combination you rolled, that results as row sum being 0 - for example placing combination of 4-1-2-2-4 at row "Three of a kind" gives you no points at all from that row as they do not match.
Game ends once both players have placed a score on every row. The winner is the one who scores more points.
Please pay attention to the fact that player has predetermined time to spend on each turn - if that runs out, a row gets selected and score set for it automatically and the turn passed on to the opponent.
