Update 5/31: Yahtzee Wild! is now available to all players.
Yahtzee Wild has been made available to 20% of Pogo users today. If you were selected, the link below will allow you to play the game:
Note, if you get the “Page Not Found” page instead of Yahtzee Wild’s game page, it means you were not part of the early access this round. Keep checking back as Pogo will add more users to the game as they work through the bugs that come up.
According to a message sent by Pogo_Sconnie:
As a reminder, Early Access games are a sneak preview of what’s to come and not a full representation of a final game. There will be some temporary sounds and images in place during this time period, and some features will not be fully accessible. We’ll communicate when these features will be updated. We’d love to get your feedback on Yahtzee! Wild’s Early Access.
If you were selected, you will have access to the game. If you were not selected, you will see “page not available.”
Got the email about the game, but was not selected for Early Access.
Well doesn’t that beat all – I did not get selected, but my other account, the one that is really bad at gin, got it. Sheesh. I played a game, and I am not impressed.
Thanks Pogo for not selecting me.
Good luck everyone.
I did not get not available but I did not get the game either.
The game isn’t counting rank progress for me. I should easily be rank 1 by now but the rank points just aren’t being added.
Wow, that’s strange. I’ve played 8 games and I’m at rank 6. I’ve played all three levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced) against the bots. So far, I’ve only played one opponent. You earn money by playing and there is a daily gift that’s awarded. You can use the money to buy wild dice which I’ve only tried once. Don’t know if you can use the wild dice against real players??? Hope your ranking gets squared away soon, Lura.
This is probably going to be one of those games that you push into the corner and let it collect dust :). I didn’t get the game.
Ranks are working for me i made rank 3 in 4-5 games.
As for gameplay its not terrible but not really great either…as far as I can tell when in multiplayer you buy wilds for 1,000 coins each (these coins r for sale) so if you were to play in a room full of people then the ones with large pocketbooks stand a much higher chance of winning the game as they can buy up to 13 wilds and replace one dice of their choice with a wild whereas you just play what’s rolled.
You can earn coins but again that depends on where you place the higher you place the more coins you will win. I played 4-5 single player games on easy n won about 500 coins…since 1 wild is 1,000 coins it would take me 10 or so games to be able to use 1 free wild.
At first I thought the scoring blocks under the bot’s icon were his instead of both columns being mine and I had no place for some scores. Another woeful lack of instructions! What are the chevrons you win for? What does it take to get the daily award? What is the multi-color dice you get for rank progress?
The chevrons are your rank points.
Diane Gray says
Is this similar to Yahtzee Party?
They should bring back Monopoly The World Edition
I got it, but don’t really know what to think of it yet.
Lura – I have Rank 1 showing under my picture and it said 51 rank points to the next rank so I played and got 40 rank points and the circle around my name filled in green (like a meter) to show it.
My green meter filled as the chevrons were displayed but then it just emptied. 🙁
I still don’t have access to Garden Blast and that’s been out for 7 months now. I hope I get to play this before Christmas! I love Yahtzee.
Yeah I still don’t have access to Garden Blast either. And didn’t get picked for this one either. Bummer!
I’ve had garden blast since it first came out. Don’t worry, you’re not missing anything 🙂 I only played one game, just didn’t float my boat. Also if my addled brain serves me, I thought at the time the game became more difficult as you played? Someone with that played more than one game could better answer that. I thought I’d leave it until challenges came out, and then of course they never did. So I left it.

Hey Creamtrout I am with you I do not have access to Garden Blast or Yahtzee Wild wished I was one of the lucky ones to have gotten chosen also.
There are a couple more games still maybe we will get lucky and get chosen for one of those.
Got the rank 10 badge, so that’s cool 😃
Thanks, did you get back into your accounts? 🤞
No, they are still working on it 🙂
And again my main account has been passed over. Still don’t have access to Garden Blast. 2 of my other accounts, which I only use to multi-browse, have access to them both.
Those of you that get to play Yahtzee Wild, did you also get Garden Blast?
Just wondering if the same members get to preview all the new games.
No, they are different. I’ve gotten access to just one on the initial soft release, Trivial Pursuit.
Thanks for the reply!
I wish they had granted all of us access to Garden Blast before
they bring out yet another soft release.
I do not have access to pogo mail Sconnie.
Same here on access. My account and hubby’s both have garden blast, which neither of us play. We both like yahtzee, so of course only my account got it. I don’t play pogo much any more, so told him he could play on my account. I’m still waiting for Boggle Bash, which I’ll play challenge or no…just hoping the new version will be great.
I don’t know how or why but I’ve gotten early access on this game, garden blast, trivial pursuit and others.
I was a huge fan of Yahtzee party played it daily with a group of the same people each morning.
This so far is ehh I m not loving it or liking it yet maybe in time.
I’ve gotten none of the previews but my husband’s account got Garden Blast. I tried it there and didn’t like it much. I still don’t have it on my account and I’d actually forgotten all about it, lol.. I finally did get Trivial Pursuit and Lumeno, neither of which I care for so there’s that. I am looking forward to Lottso as I liked it a lot in the past.
Can’t speak for everyone but I have got early access to every one so far.
calli ott says
I got early access to all three.
I got it…tried it…still trying to get a “feel” for the new game and remembering how to play(LOL).
I got access. It’s not bad at all. One of my favorite and the best of the recent new releases. Will be better with more players in multiplayer.
Hit rank 1 right away too. They nailed this one in my opinion!
When I play In multiplayer mode, most of the slots are filled in with bots. My main complaint, is that when I finish my game way ahead of time, and if there is a human just sitting there not playing, the game makes you wait for a full 5 minutes to complete the game. What a waste of time. I think that when the room is populated by bots, the game senses that you completed it, and ends the round ahead of time. That’s only happened once though. Every other time, I have to wait ages for the game to end and get my credits.
Not really sure what you need to do to get the daily reward. I’m not really happy with the design. Nothing is really explained that well.
I like Yahtzee. Played 37 games and at Rank 26. Did have 8 starred dice but they disappeared and now have none. Haven’t used any of them. Although it does keep showing that I’m earning them. Got the daily once. I do have 10729 of coin.
Wild dice? Where are they? Where do I buy them? Why does it look like I’m earning them (red/white/blue dice), but it always says 0 (zero)?
Any information about wild dice is appreciated. Thanks 🙂
The wild dice can be purchased with Z coins. The wild dice icon is near the bottom left of the big “dice shaker cup”. When you click on the + sign on that icon, a menu will open up where you can choose how many wild dice to buy and it will display the cost in Z coins.
Not sure why but the ones that collect disappear soon as you check the themes.
As for buying you can buy them once you make a roll, they will be open to purchase (with in game currency) after there’s some dice on the board. Once you buy one you select a die on the board of your choice and replace it with a wild.
Thanks, Rose and Jeff.
The little plus sign by the wild die was greyed out for me even though I had well over 1,000 coins. However, today finally it shows as a small red plus and allows me to go to buy.
I am enjoying this, just started it on my alt as i didnt get access on my main. After an hour or so i am up to rank 20. The ranks are going pretty quick! A quick little tip- if you play in single player-solo mode you can rank up fast. I roll the dice like i am playing for real 4 or 5 times to get some points, and then on my next rolls on the first one i just start marking zeros. Game finishes in about 1 minute or so and you still get 40 rank points per game!
Also, i am playing on my iPad and i was not gaining rank progress on Safari. I switched to Edge and have had no issues.
Good luck everyone!!
I got yahtzee wild and been added my club pogo screen i hope others got too yea
I played a few games and I like it . i got rank 2 easily…. i also played the single player and see if get a better score and i have not played with others yet…
Does anyone know about how long it takes them to put the games out for all?
Never mind I found it! I guess I didn’t see when Pogo said it was available or they have not promoted it yet? Well I fixin to give it a try. Hagd and gl on your games!
Hi. My mom hit rank 70 in Yahtzee Wild. She said that some players have a “70” in the upper left corner of their photos, and I can’t figure out how to get hers there. She wants to wear that badge with pride. Anyone know how to get it on there? I found the Favorite badge, but I can’t add it to her picture.
Does any one know what the die with the red paint and paintbrush is for on Pogo’s Yatzee Wild? I tried pogo’s forums, clicked the die, and nothing.
i think that’s just for your new nameplates/wedges/pies
They are for “cosmetics” according to the how to play section. For me (I’m in the 40s in rank) it has meant unlocking different backgrounds for the game. I’ve unlocked them all and don’t seem to be getting any more of those red paint dice. I also tried one of the unlocked backgrounds and it was much harder for me to see the dice when playing. So I switched it back to the default.
