I just acquired a Yahtzee cart (without manual), and was looking at the instructions in the game/playing through- it'd been a LONG time since I played it!   My dad had a copy on disk that I suspect was acquired from less than conventional means ;)

 

Anyhoo, playing through this and using the keyboard I was thinking that this game would've been cool if they allowed for use of a joystick for rolling the dice, moving down the scorecard, and confirming input. 

 

You would still use the number keys to select the dice, but i think joystick would make the input a little more user-friendly.

ok, i hear that! :)  i do find it weird that in Parsec using the keyboard you can't move upwards and fire at the same time- at least i couldn't.

Use period to fire, you should then be able to move at the same time :)
