Dice – An iPhone Application on holiday.
We had a delightful time at Rainbow Beach, these Easter holidays with 4 or 5 days away from home. Our children wished to play a game of Monopoly and as we layout the pieces, counted out the money, chose our charms we realised that we had left the dice behind. Oh dear, the shops were closed but all is not lost.
A quick visit to the Apple iTunes store and we came away with a set of lovely virtual dice.
I am inclined to think that virtual dice might even be better.
