Dice Fan? Give Online Farkle a Go!
Who knew six dice could create so much suspense? That’s the simple concept of farkle: you play with six dice, and a single 1, a single 5 or any combo above a pair are worth a set number of points. After each throw, you can hold any winning combos and throw the remaining dice again, in the hopes of adding to the points you’re holding. But when you’re in a race to 10 000 points, and you throw three 2s, worth 200 points, do you bank them and pass the dice on, or throw the 2s along with the other dice again, in the hope of a higher-scoring combo? Or do you hold the 2s, and throw the other three dice to try score more points before you bank? Because if you farkle – that’s a throw with no winning dice in it – you lose all the points you haven’t banked yet, and have to pass the dice on anyway.
