GLEESON.US > DASHABOOJA
A brand new ancient game of chance
From out of the history and legend of ancient India comes Dashabooja, a spellbinding card game that combines the exciting action of poker with the lightning pace of a slot machine — and multiplies it all by ten.

Exotic yet simple
A ten-armed brass idol, the Dashabooja, is your dealer. Expertly dispensing all 52 cards in a standard deck at once, the hypnotically graceful statue deals ten hands of poker at a time, and rewards you according to the luck of the draw.
Even though Dashabooja bases your prize on poker hands, no knowledge of poker is needed to play the game. In fact, it might serve as a fun introduction to this pastime. Dashabooja is no more difficult to play than any slot machine.
You start with a score of 1000, and can potentially win millions. But if you should happen to lose everything, just click “Play Again,” and we will happily give you another thousand.
A feast for all the senses
As with other Gleeson.us games, Dashabooja has been made to the highest standards of game design. When you have a glut of choices of online games to play, we don’t think it’s wrong for you to insist on excellence. Intuitive controls. Shaded and textured graphics. Rich, natural animation and stereophonic sound. Orchestral music, by real musicians employing real musical instruments. Correctly spelled and punctuated text. Go ahead and insist on these things. We do.
A story stranger than fiction
As amazing as Dashabooja is today, imagine the wonder it must have inspired in 1851. The little-known tale of Dashabooja’s discovery, rise to fame, and fall from grace will intrigue and fascinate anyone with an interest in history, or just a taste for a good story. The Legend of Dashabooja is the most comprehensive collation ever assembled of surprising details and rare images — some never before published — from Dashabooja’s 100-year career.
