Yacht (also known as Yahtzee

Azabat Games In the game of Yacht (Yahtzee) you have five dice and a score card. There are 13 categories on the score card and in each round you can throw the dice up to 3 times. At the end of each round you have to choose which category you want to score your points against. You can choose any available category but once you've used a category you cannot use it again or change your mind. Thus, there are 13 rounds and the overall aim is to score the highest number of points.

Blackjack Pro

Azabat Games Completely re-written in 2011
This new version of Blackjack allows multiple players/hands, supports Insurance (as well as hit, stand, double, split and surrender), gives hints for each situation, uses multiple decks of cards (for card counting - and includes Hi-Lo counter) and plays both the European and American versions (in European casinos the dealer receives only one card, dealt face up, while in American Casinos the dealer receives two cards initially, one face down.

The aim is to score as close to 21 without going over. You play against the dealer and bet an amount of chips for each hand. If you go over 21 you automatically lose but if you score more than the dealer you win.

Klondike (Solitaire)

Azabat Games Klondike is the most popular version of Solitaire, and is played with a standard pack of 52 cards. At the start of the game, 28 cards are dealt incrementally into 7 columns. Column 1 contains one card, column 2 has two cards, column 3 has 3 cards and so on. The cards are all face down, except the top card in each column is turned face upward.

The remaining 24 cards are kept, face down, in a pile called the stock, and the top card is turned over.

There are four foundation piles, one for each suit, and the aim of the game is to build the foundations up from ace through to king until all the foundation piles are complete. You can only move the top card from each column, or the top card from the stock, on to the foundation piles, and provided, of course, that the move is legal.

Connect 4

Azabat Games Connect 4 uses a board with 7 columns and 6 rows. Each player starts with 21 counters of their own colour and they take turns to place a counter in one of the 7 columns. The board is vertical so the counters build from the bottom upwards. The aim of the game is to get a line of 4 counters the same colour in any direction, vertically, horizontally or diagonally.

In this version, you play against the computer. Your counters are red and the computer plays blue and you always get the first move.
