How to Play

The most basic rules of the game are well accepted and have been established since before the start of the marketing campaign, but there is a very large rage in how the game is both played and scored. Not everyone agrees on the best way, the original way, or the way that should be accepted as “the” way of playing Farkle.

The equipment that players need  include six dice, some sort of writing instrument like a pen or pencil, and something to write the scores on such as a piece of paper. The number of dice depends on the variation of the game that the players want to play and can range from a total of five to a total of six. To play the game, there has to be at least two players. Each of these players takes turn throwing the dice. After each dice throw the player is given a score. The game end of the game is reached when one of the players has a total score of ten thousand.

The step by step process on how to play is outlined as this. At the start of the player’s turn, the player puts all of the dice into a cup and throws them. Once the player has thrown the dice, one or more of the scoring dice has to be put to the side.

Scoring is as follows. Each dice that lands on one is worth one hundred points. Each dice that lands on five is worth fifty points. If the player gets three ones then they are awarded one thousand points. If the player gets three threes then they are awarded three hundred points. If the player gets three fours they are awarded for hundred points. If the player gets three fives they are awarded five hundred points. If the player gets three sixes they are awarded six hundred points. The scoring for mobile Farkle casino often lines up with these rules.

After the player has thrown, they can stop their turn and keep the score or keep throwing the dice that are left. If the player throws all sixes, they can throw the dice again and add that amount to the six hundred points they already gotten. If the player throws the dice and none score, it is a Farkle and they will score no points for that turn.
