Playdom, which said it would use some of its recent $43 million funding round for acquisitions, is following through on that pledge. The social gaming company is buying up Offbeat Creations, the developer of several Facebook titles, including dice game Super Farkle, which has more than one million users. Super Farkle is by far Offbeat Creations’ most popular title; others include Be A Tycoon and Give A Heart.

This is Playdom’s third acquisition since its funding round; in November, it purchased another Facebook game developer, Green Patch, as well as iPhone game developer Trippert Labs.

Financial details of this deal were not released. Offbeat Creations’ three founders, as well as its 12 game designers, are joining Playdom’s Seattle studio.
