Unlike IFarcle and similar games, with dice world you are playing human opponents. Many folks on applevis play dice world so ask any question if you should have issues figuring out how to play.

One VoiceOver improvement I have found is that, in Balut, it reads out all five dice and tells you where in the score card you can go and how many points you'll get: I don't know whether this is also the case in Yahtzee, as I have not been in any Yahtzee games since this new update was released. Another general improvement in the DiceWorld app is that, when you go up a level, you get twice as much gold as the number of the level, so graduating to level 21 got me 42 gold, definitely a welcome surprise as it's rare that I had more than 5 gold at a time before.

Can anyone give some tips with ballot and voiceover? I read the help, and so think I know how to play the game?? But is there any better way to navigate it thanswiping, any tips? If it makes any difference in the interface, I am on an iPad mini, and they just updated this app to work with iPads.

Hello all,
I am a new dice world user. I have the game all set up to play, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to play the games. Are there any podcasts/demos on this app that I can listen too? Thank you for any help with this.

Submitted by sockhopsinger on Thursday, June 5, 2014

Lisa, you have two areas you can look at for help. Near the top of this page under the app information is a link to a podcast. Also, in the app itself, if you go into the help section and scroll through the different game options, you will see not only written instructions, but also Voiceover specific tutorials for each game except for Pig.

I dont' see any thign that needs to br fixed regarding voice over, but hey if they think so, I'll go with it. This game really rocks. If anyone wants to play me send me a mention to @marrie1 refering dice world or wait for me to tweet out every once in a blue moon. I don't do that often. Take care to all and love the game.

Hi, when I try to update divce World, it says new version is available. I click download, and it says run dice World, rather than update dice World. And everytime I enter the game I see that new version window. Help is aprisiated.

Hi, that is right. I had the same problem as well. So I head on to App Store and update from there.Honestly I didn't see any difference. I stil cannot post to facebook.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Friday, June 6, 2014

I don't have that problem yet either. I can post fine to fb and twitter. Can you try reconnecting your accounts? I can't help you with that, how ever it might help. If not I'd suggest emailing them.

take care.

Submitted by sockhopsinger on Friday, June 6, 2014

I got the update two days ago. I had no problem downloading it. Perhaps you might restart your phone and try again? Sorry if you've tried that, but I can't think of anything else to do. Either that or are you set up to auto-update? If so, it may have updated your phone already.

Submitted by burak on Saturday, June 7, 2014

Hi, the update to dice World has just arrived to the appstore yesterday. I think there is some latency when transfering updates from usa to other countries I guess.

Hello everyone,
I'm a new dice world player. As of right now I only play Farkle. If anyone would like to play me in a game of Farkle my user name is, Lisa621

As a keen DiceWorld player, I always update it when a new version comes out. However, I couldn't update to version 4.11 which was released today, according to what I read when I double-tapped Download in the alert within the app. DiceWorld didn't show up as an update when I went to Updates in the French App Store, so I tried to update from the DiceWorld app as I usually do: however, I ended up going round in circles, because there was an Open button on the DiceWorld page in the App Store, not an update button, and when I opened DiceWorld again I got the alert for the new version once more. I tried restarting my iPhone, as someone suggested in a previous post on this thread, but that hasn't made any difference, I'm still going round in circles. Does anyone have anyn suggestions as to what else I can do, other than deleting and reinstalling DiceWorld? By the way, I have automatic updates enable for apps, but DiceWorld is the one app I have that those automatic updates don't work for, I've always had to update from within the app, but this time it doesn't seem to want to work for me, not so far anyway.

As a follow-up to my previous post, yesterday afternoon I made the decision to completely reinstall DiceWorld to get version 4.11: this was due to the fact that this weekend has been pretty busy for me, so I decided I didn't want to waste too much time and energy going round and round in circles trying to update the app, as described in my previous post. Possible other solutions to my updating problem, to avoid going round in circles like I did yesterday morning, would still be welcome if anyone has them, just in case this problem occurs again, for me or for anyone else, with future DiceWorld updates.

You pay gold to play some of them, you try and beat the high score and that's about it. i've played free ones but they are very hard to win.

Hello everyone,
Sometimes Dice World is sluggish on my iPhone 5S. After I have roled my turn I double tap on the back button, and nothing happens. After a minute or so VO will then say next game button. Then I can activate the back button. This doesn't happen all of the time, but it does happen. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Tuesday, September 30, 2014

If you are under ios8 it was sluggish under the betas. Also i fyou play aivdeo it will be sluggish. the trick is to restart dice world under ios7 anyway, but report any issues to the team under ios8 as they are very much prevelent.

hi, I have the latest version of dice, and ios 8.1. how do I leave the ads for gold? there is only one button, but it plays the ad again, and again.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Thursday, October 23, 2014

Explore by touch and there will be a button at the bottom of the screen in the right hand corner. Click it.

Submitted by Michal Badin on Friday, October 24, 2014

sorry, no button. only install link, then nothing. only before some screenshots, and stuff. but no second button. only the one on the top.

Submitted by Toonhead on Friday, October 24, 2014

Hi. I had trouble with finding the button at first, but I promise you, it is quite definitely there. You really do have to explore by touch on this one. After the commercial plays, touch your iPhone's bottom right hand corner. If you hear something like, button, you've found it. Double tap it, and you've got your gold.

Submitted by Toonhead on Friday, October 24, 2014

It's funny because while the commercial is playing for the first few seconds, there's a little hint that is spoken and it says, the close button for this advertisement is located at the bottom right in portrait mode. It's entirely possible that you missed that, I know I did the first couple times, I was doing other things and not concentrating.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Friday, October 24, 2014

I actually had th tnot work today actually ther was no button to stop the add. I had to restart dice world.

Take care.

Submitted by Michal Badin on Saturday, October 25, 2014

what about the slugginess of it? I flick through numbers, and it stops speaking, then click several times, like it was catching up.

Submitted by Lisa on Sunday, October 26, 2014

Hello all,
I did write the developer of Dice World about it being a bit sluggish for me on my iPhone 5S. I got no response from the developer.

Submitted by sockhopsinger on Thursday, November 6, 2014

Of note, this app is now called Dice World: 6 Free Dice Games.

Exciting news. As has been stated on another thread, the app developers are to be applauded for keeping their app accessible.

I'll be streaming live demos of the game today at about 13:00 pst if anyone wants to listen I'm not giving the link here but follow me on twitter @marrie1 for the link to the stream. Also, the stream will be archived at my podcast page as well.

Take care.

Game isn't working for me anymore. I'm running ios 6.1.6 on an ipod 4th gen. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app twibe and it still won't open. Is this happening to anyone else? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The developer is aware of this issue. Something happened in the new release that broke the apps ability to work with IOS 6, but rest assured the problem is being worked on.

Submitted by Lisa on Saturday, November 8, 2014

Hello all,
Are there any demos of the new games? I would prefer mp3 files that I can download and play on my VR Stream, so I can play the demo and follow along on my iPhone. Thanks.

Submitted by Toonhead on Saturday, November 8, 2014

Hi. Until someone does game demos, you can play along with the tutorials available right within the game. To do this,double tap on create a game. and on the resulting screen right up at the top, you'll find a button that says tutorials, take a quick tutorial. Double-tapping on this allows you to choose a game to play. Once you choose the game, the tutorial actually talks you through the game. I.e. first, hit the next button to continue. Once you do that, it invites you to double-tap on the role button to get started. Then just follow the prompts and you can learn how to play. Wether you win is up to the dice. LOL!

Hello all,
Now on my iPhone 6 plus I can't post my game wins to Twitter. This worked fine for me on my 5S, but now on my 6 plus I can't post my wins from Dice World. Any thoughts on how I can get this to work again on my 6 plus would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Submitted by Toonhead on Saturday, November 8, 2014

Hi. Try the following...
1. In the iPhones settings, go to the twitter button and delete any accounts you have associated with it, and then re-create them.
2. Go into the account settings screens for dice world, and you should be able to find the section where it mentions twitter. if you have more than one account, it'll ask you to choose which one you want to use.
Hope that helps.

From the dice world twitter account, the free gold button works 100 percent of the time now, there are no restrictions as to how many videos you can watch to get free gold. This is cool.

If you use the free gold button approximately every 10 minutes or so, you will always get the jackpot for 10 gold. This way you don't have to listen to many infomercials for one gold at a time. Love it.
