Blue Orange Games and HagerApps Bring Yamslam, a Dice Game, to iOS 5

  (December 16, 2011)

Beaverton, Oregon (PRWEB) December 16, 2011

Blue Orange Games and HagerApps are pleased to introduce Yamslam 1.0 for iOS 5, their new version of the popular board game played with five dice and 28 chips. The goal of the game is to throw a high scoring combination and claim a corresponding scoring chip. Players get three successive rolls of the dice, and may keep good numbers and roll the remaining dice on their following turns. Both luck and planning are required to win, as there are only four of each of the seven types of scoring chips. Rolling a high-scoring combination helps to win only if a matching chip remains for the player to collect. The game ends when the last chip is won or discarded.

Feature Highlights:

  • Fast, fun game for 1 to 4 players, ages 8 and older
  • Win chips for creating winning combinations with 5 dice
  • Try it by playing with friends using Apple's Game Center
  • Bonus Points at the end of the game for special chip combinations
  • An international favorite finally comes to iOS mobile devices

Players must employ risk taking and strategy to win Yamslam. The game is the flagship title in the Tin Game series, and it can be played in less than 20 minutes when playing face-to-face. Hager Apps has taken care to maintain the high quality and exquisite design for which Blue Orange Games, the creators of Yamslam, is known, when porting Yamslam to the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad platforms. The iOS version of the game can be found in the U.S. and Canadian App Stores. It can be downloaded and tried free using Game Center's new turn-by-turn feature available only in iOS 5.

Yamslam Combinations:

  • 2 Pairs / 5 point chip - two pairs of dice showing the same face
  • 3-of-a-Kind / 10 point chip - three dice showing the same face
  • Small Straight / 20 point chip - four dice following each other in numerical succession (e.g., 2,3,4,5)
  • Flush / 25 point chip - all the dice have the same color
  • Full House / 30 point chip - three-of-a-kind and a pair
  • 4-of-a-Kind / 40 point chip - four dice showing the same face
  • Large Straight / 50 point chip - five dice following each other (e.g., 1,2,3,4,5)
  • Yamslam / all five dice showing the same face - choose the chip you want and play again
