Farkel (or "Farkle") is an exciting, high-scoring dice game for the whole family. It only takes minutes to learn, and luck, guts and strategy to win. Do you stop tossing the dice and be satisfied with your score or do you gamble that you can get more? Originally played on French sailing ships and listed as one of the best games in the world, Farkel is an exciting, on-the-edge-of-your-seat game that's enjoyed by everyone.
Players take turns rolling six dice, aiming to get certain scoring combinations (4 of a kind, a straight, etc.). You can roll as many times during your turn as you like, but if you roll and there are no scoring combinations, this is known as a farkel, and you will lose all points gained in that turn. The first person to score over 10,000 points wins. (see complete Farkle Rules)
