Produced by Jay Kay Studio.

Written by Kenneth Liew.

When you go to pub/KTV to have a drinking session with a few friends, you will need this Drinking Dice. The Drinking Dice (酒吧骰子) is a drinking game. It has the following six faces:

- Drink 1 shot!

- Drink 2 shots!

- Person on your RIGHT drink!

- Person on your LEFT drink!

- Drink nothing!

- Drink as you wish!

The key idea is to take turns to roll the dice. And do as what you were told to do by the dice. It is fun, and it will make sure one of you or many will be drunk after the game. Remember, don't drink and drive!


酒吧骰子是一个很好玩的骰子游戏。您现在可以把 “酒吧骰子” 永远带在身上(iPhone)。 在酒吧或卡拉OK里,大家轮流丢骰子,然后就按着指示喝酒。直喝到其中一个朋友或大伙大醉为止。骰子上的指示有

- 饮一杯

- 右代饮

- 饮二杯

- 左代饮

- 随意饮

- 免饮

OK. Since Drinking Dice (酒吧骰子) is a wonderful game. Wouldn't it be nice if I can MANIPULATE the dice to what I wish it to be? And Yes, Drinking Dice come with a HIDDEN CHEAT mode where you can only learn it from this blog article.

To get "Drink nothing", simply tab 3 times the left-most dice in the history panel in portrait mode, or the most bottom dice in the history panel in landscape mode. After you done so, Shake the iPhone once and show the result.

To force a "Drink 2 shots", simply tab 3 times the fourth dice from the left in the history panel in portrait mode, or the fourth dice from the bottom in the history panel of the landscape mode. After you done so, PASS it to the person you want him/her to drink. And ask her to shake the iPhone.

Game Salad Creator failed to upload to Game Salad iPhone Viewer


For few days, I got stuck at the Game Salad iPhone Viewer. The symptoms is somehow, I cannot see the upload via WIFI icon beside the green play button.

I just upgraded to Game Salad 0.8.9, and I thought it was a bug that they will fix soon. Later when I really got time to sit down and dig some more, I found that it was a stupid error.

Somehow, Game Salad lost my userid and password, and therefore, it is not log on to the server. So, they cannot verify I am a member, therefore, the WIFI upload logo will never come out. Well, Game Salad should pop out a message saying, "are you log in?"

After I key in my userid and password, the WIFI upload logo appears again. ahhaha

eduDice for iPad / iPhone / iPod Touch

red-dice-icon iphone7272.png



The kids learned everything from school nowadays. However, not every thing they learned can fit into your kid's learning pace. For my case, my son has learn how to count at school, so, it is naturally for him to learn how to add. But if you ask him to count the fingers, he will get confuse, as he needs to manage the fingers and counting at the same time. That is why I created the eduDice for him to learn counting from the two dices.


The game comes with both Portrait mode & Landscape mode, simply to take advantage of the user friendly interface of the iPad device.

This is where the kid will learn how to count the dots on a dice. If the dice show "5", he will touch the dice 5 times. And the app will start counting together with the kid. 1-2-3-4-5. When the kid press the "speaker" icon, the App will speak out the number directly. All instructions are clickable.

Don't forget to click those cute octopus, sumo wrestler, and crab.

Now, when the kid is ready, he will learn how to add two dices together by counting all the dots he sees from the two dices. So, in this case, he will touch the first dice 3 times, and a green arrow will mark counting completion. As he press the second dice two times, the second dice will show a green arrow. This teaches the kid how to do proper counting dots. When he is ready to try new one, simply press the Next button below the dices to change the dice number.


When the kid is ready to take the quiz. This is where he will learn how to add both number by counting the dots. It is very important to keep encouraging the kid. So, when he answer wrongly, I simply put a X symbol and ask him to try to answer again. When he press the correct answer, the App will praise the kid "Excellent!", "Brilliant!", "Well Done!", etc... sort of encourage the kid.

It is a very simple technique. But you cannot bring the dice everywhere you go. So, if mom and dad carries an iPhone, this App will keep your kid busy, fun and yet educational.

Note 1: eduDice for iPhone will be coming soon.
Note 2: The game is FREE!


Well, the dice is a cube and has only 6 faces. So, your kid will start learning adding 1-6 addition. Instead of the 1-10. This App is suitable for kid that is 1.5 years old to 4 years old. I hope this app will bring both fun and knowledge to your kid. Have Fun!

It's a Bug!!!

OK... I think I can re-create the bug. What I did, is I accidentally drag the image file into the scene area. And it created an actor for me. And when I deleted it by pressing DEL key, nothing happens. And I use the "minus sign" to delete. And then, I click the "plus sign" in the image area to add an image, somehow, all my image cannot be displayed. And the proj file got corrupted again!

Hmmm... I believe I did the same mistake yesterday... later got time, I will verify. Luckily this time, I never press the SAVE button to save this corrupted file.

If you face with this, simply kill Game salad and restart again.
