Welcome to Open Yahtzee
Open Yahtzee is an open-source (free) version of the classic dice game Yahtzee. Open Yahtzee is built to be OS portable, that means you can run it on many kinds of different operating systems and platforms. The portability is mainly achieved via wxWidgets which also gives Open Yahtzee a native look on each platform. Open Yahtzee is being developed by Guy Rutenberg.
You can download Open Yahtzee for Windows, Linux and the source code in the Download page. There is also a portable version available which doesn't require installation.
Screenshots of Open Yahtzee (on Windows and Linux) can be found in the Screenshots page.
