Mountain View, Calif. – Social games
publisher Playdom announced on Wednesday that it has acquired Offbeat
Creations, a developer of games for Facebook.

Financial terms of the transaction
were not disclosed.

Offbeat Creations, whose titles include the dice game "Super
Farkle," said its gaming applications are attracting 1 million active
monthly users.

funding round last November, which the company said at the time would be used
in part for strategic acquisitions.

Offbeat’s development team will join
Playdom’s existing team in Seattle.
