Farkle


A push-your luck game of rolling dice for points. You roll 6 dice, remove only the dice you want to use for points, then re-roll the remaining dice. Points can be scored by specific numbers (e.g. 5 or 1) or sets of the same number. If you can use all six dice for points, pick them all up and keep going.

'Bank' your points and end your turn at any time but beware, some scoring dice must be removed after every roll - if no scoring dice at all are rolled your turn ends and score zero points.

The game ends when the winning player reaches a set total of points, usually 10,000.

This game is similar to Dice 10,000 and Ten Grand The Dice Game. It originated in the 1930s (Hugo Kastner: Die große Humboldt Enzyklopädie der Würfelspiele. Humboldt 2007, pp. 205-208).
