    Default 5Dice Scoring Problems
    First off, I want to say to the person that made the 5Dice App....GREAT JOB! I had forgotten how much fun yahtzee was to kill time and probably hadn't played it in 10 years.

    In playing it, I found 2 scoring issues:
    * I scored a yahtzee in Roll 2. It was my 1st yahtzee of the game and it scored appropriately. I saved each die and then hit roll again, on the 3rd roll it gave me a yahtzee credit.
    * I had a large straight filled in and on a subsequent roll, I got another large straight. I hit small straight and it accepted it.

    Believe me I'm not complaining but thought I would le you know.

    Thanks for your work.

    1) Yeah, its been getting better. On the first version you could save the starting die, when they were all on 1's and "roll" with them saved the WHOLE game...and get yahtzee like 30 times. lol...

    2) I am pretty sure this is right...You do have a small straight, so therefore you can click the small straight. Just because the other number make it a large straight too, doesn't mean you still dont have a small straight. But I haven't played true yahtzee for years, so maybe I am wrong.

    1. hahaha i should have tried that....

    2. yea, if i had 1 2 3 4 5, that counts as either a large straight or a small straight (2 3 4 5), but i cant remember if you total all the dice or just the ones involved in your straight

    yeah, the straights are calculated correctly.

    i think the point values are flat numbers though
