Dice World! - 3 Turn based dice games! - FREE

We are proud to announce the release of Dice World! Three highly addictive dice games, built on a turn based framework that outshines all others.

Three games to choose from:
- Farkle – An addictive fast paced game of risk taking.
- Yatzy - The classic strategic dice game everyone loves.
- Balut! – A true test of your skills. A very addictive and strategic game.

You can play Dice World with anyone, anytime, anywhere around the world!

Play against:
- Friends
- Contacts
- Facebook friends
- Twitter followers
- Random opponents
- the possibilities are endless!

Key Features:
•Play multiple games against different opponents at the same time.

•Turn based game play. There is no need for both players to be online at the same time.

•Track which countries around the world your opponents are playing from!

•Superior stats - Wins, Losses, Ties, High Scores… it’s all recorded!

•Versus stats – We even track your stats against every player you oppose, for the ultimate in bragging rights!

•Leaderboard – Are you good enough to make it onto the worldwide leader board? Represent your country!

•Chat with your friends during game play - multiple lingual support for chat text (even user names support all languages)!

•Player ranking - work your way up from a starting level of DiceJoke to the surprise highest level! Be the first in your country to accomplish this feat!

•Offline? No problem - play some practice games to hone your skills!

•Seamless integration with Push Notifications for lightning fast game play.

•Detailed help for each game to help new players get up to speed.

•No Cheating allowed! We don't allow bonus rolls or life lines, etc. We are strongly against this concept and you will never see it on Dice World!


Our goal is simply to provide the best dice gaming experience available. This is version 1.0, with many improvements to come in the near future….

We look forward to you joining us here in Dice World!

Hi there,

No Angle. There are some ads in the game, but not intrusive at all. You can get rid of the ads for 1.99.. but there is really no need.

Our goal is to provide the best multiplayer dice game available, and to get as many people around the world playing as possible. So far our users love it. Give it a shot! You'll get hooked!

And yes... lots of good stats

Any plans on going universal?

Yes. That's a big priority. We are currently working on that, as well as localization for different regions.

I didn't realise those were actual names of dice games....

And it was particularly interesting that Balut was named after a delicacy made from the fetal duck egg available in some Southeast Asian countries. If you believe wikipedia of course.

Err, maybe it's because in Balut all of your scored rolls are like fetal bits that must be carefully developed before they'll even count?
