Come On... Just One More '6'!
Based upon the pre-cursor to Yahtzee (trademark Hasbro), our version turns this slow solitaire game into a fast, multi-player competition.
The five dice are rolled and each player gets a copy in his or her play area. You select dice to hold and when everybody is ready, all five dice are rolled again. Instead of getting a copy of every die into your play area, you only get a copy of the dice you didn't hold. After 2 retries, score your dice on your score pad!

Installation and Setup
If you received the installer, simply run it and follow the on-screen prompts.
If you received a ZIP file, you can extract it anywhere. If you create a shortcut (for example, to your desktop), right-click on the shortcut, select "Properties", and set the "Start in:" field to the game's directory (which can be copied from the "Target:" field).
Each human player can be touching their score pads simultaneously. By taking turns, you only need 1 touch point. Ideally your setup should detect as many touch points as there are players. In the worst case, a player could touch all 5 dice simultaneously. The most we've seen in practice is 3 simultaneous touches per player.
The application attempts to receive TUIO and Windows HID events. The service that sends touch events first to the application will be used to control the game.
