Microsoft Research Launches Second Facebook Game

Doubloon Dash is the second Facebook game designed and developed by Microsoft Research. The aim of the project is  to study how people participate in all-pay auctions.

The first Facebook game by MSR called Project Waterloo is already available for public.
