Scopely Shakes Things Up with Special Edition Birthday Dice
LOS ANGELES – Scopely, the leading touchscreen entertainment network, and global company Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), are celebrating the one-year anniversary of the hit mobile game, YAHTZEE With Buddies. To celebrate one year of shaking, scoring and shouting, Scopely is releasing special content for YAHTZEE’s dedicated community. All players who complete a YAHTZEE Buddy Match will get a slice of cake in the form of special edition Birthday Cake Custom Dice.
Scopely has also created a YAHTZEE With Buddies infographic highlighting the vast number of rolls, high scores, and games played in the year since the game rolled on to the Apple App Store in April 2015. Across the iOS and Android apps, players have enjoyed more than:
1.2 billion games
50 billion total rolls
581 million YAHTZEEs rolled
The highest possible score of 880 (a perfect game) still proves elusive for most, but has been achieved by 108 highly skilled players

We’ve been blown away by the number of fans who love the game and play it all day long,” said Tim O’Brien, Chief Revenue Officer of Scopely.
YAHTZEE With Buddies, the officially-licensed mobile game, takes the unpredictable, addictive play of the beloved YAHTZEE game and makes it mobile. With its beautiful and clean new look and captivating graphics, the fully optimized mobile experience stays true to the original feel of the YAHTZEE game with easy-to-learn, intuitive gameplay.
