What do I need to play Farkle?

  • 6 dice
  • Something to keep score


Players take turns in a CLOCKWISE direction to roll the dice and score points to reach the winning total of 10000.

  • At the start of your turn, roll all the dice at one go
  • After each throw:
    • Set aside and score one or more dice
    • Decide if you wish to:
      • continue throwing remaining dice and scoring or
      • end your turn and bank your score
    • If you score all 6 dice, you may continue throwing all 6 dice and adding to the score you have already gained
    • If you are not able to score any dice on a throw, you ‘FARKLE‘, your turn ends and you lose all your points for that turn.
    • When you end your turn, you hand the dice to the next player

Once a player reaches the total winning points, each player has one last turn to try to score enough points to win.
