Description

A dice game of skill, and a little luck, that is played in the bars of the Far East. It's named after a delicacy - fertilized duck eggs - that is often consumed while drinking in said establishments.

The goal of the game is to optimally fill out a score pad with certain dice combinations in order to gain the highest score.

Balut is now OpenFeint enabled.

What's New

Version 4.0

Seems like we lost Agon. Crying shame.

Balut is now OpenFeint enabled.

This is a quick attempt at getting the leader boards up and running again.

First of, what are hopefully, many changes - the API is sprawling, and it's been a bit of a struggle getting a handle on it all.

Ratings and Reviews

Boy, there are a lot of full screen ads!

I just noticed that the app is getting inundated with full screen ads. I've informed my ad provider about my concerns. They said they were aware of the situation.

In the meantime, I've doubled the time between ads. Let's see if that lessens the annoyance factor a bit.

Pardon me a moment, while I shed a tear or two for all that lost revenue. Darn shame. It felt good to get some acknowledgement for all the work :)

Ideally, I really wish I could set it up so that it displays a single ad for an entire game. But that doesn't seem realistic - virtually no one clicks on any of the ads. How does everyone feel about making the app paid only? Philosphically, I'm opposed - but I'm running into a 'Tyranny of the Commons' type of situation here.

Five stars from me

I gave this game five stars, because it seemed silly not too.

(But really I'm writing this review in response to what 491X2 said.)

For being an excellent, and portable, representation of the balut dice game, this game deserves to be played. I've been having lots of fun with the game, and would recommend it to others. I'll click on an ad now and again, just because it seems like the right thing to do.

This game is not Yahtzee(tm), nor is it meant to be a clone.

Strange how some of the better ad supported free games, like this one, are ones that I'd be willing to pay for. While some of the not so good, (read as: crappy,) $0.99 cent games, I wouldn't bother playing even if they were free.

It's ok

The game rules don't tell you what each combination is, specifically a balut. It's an ok game to pass the time, not amazing. Worth the price of 'free'.

**After some research I found out that a balut is a flush or a hand of all the same numbers. Please, make a scoring rules page so other people don't have to search around the net to figure out how it's played. I mean, you are getting paid through ads.
