Michigan Liar's Dice

By The University of Michigan

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Liar's dice is an easy-to-learn game requiring the ability to deceive and detect an opponent's deception. Michigan Liar's Dice provides you the chance to play this fun and challenging (and free) game of Liars Dice against a top artificial intelligence (AI) opponent.

Designed for both casual and serious players, Michigan Liar's Dice can be played against one to three opponents, and provides a simple interface that helps you make your best bid. The game has the complete set of bids including pushing, exact (spot on), pass, and special rules when a player gets to one die.

This game was developed by the Soar research group at the University of Michigan, and uses Soar as the underlying engine for the game AI. Soar is a general cognitive architecture and has been used for developing a wide range of intelligent agents for training, computer games, and robotics.

The game AI uses probabilities, heuristics, and even a model of the opponent to determine its bids (but does not include any learning, yet!). Michigan Liars Dice is the first iPhone app powered by Soar. Learn more about Soar at

Customer Reviews

Game doesn't work for me, support doesn't work either

Played one game. It miscounted the number of dice on the table, whether there were wilds or not.

After the first full game, the AI would no longer play. Starting any game, after my opening move, the AI would do nothing, the wheel spinning indefinitely.

I turned on soar logging and tried to send the AI engine logs to the developer, but the email address bounced back as invalid.

Great ai for a great game

Very smooth gameplay, quick, intelligent ai - a challenge for all good perudo players!
