Farkle

18.2.5 Farkle

Farkle is a dice game played between two to four people. Players take turns going one at a time.
 
- At the beginning of each turn, the player throws all the dice at once from a cup. Certain dice combinations score points.
 
- After each throw, one or more scoring dice must be set aside.
 
- The player may then either end their turn and bank the score accumulated so far, or continue to throw the remaining dice.
 
- If the player has scored all six dice, they have 'hot dice' and may continue their turn with a new throw of all six dice, adding to the score they have already accumulated. There is no limit to the number of 'hot dice' a player may roll in one turn.
 
- If none of the dice score in any given throw, the player has 'farkled' and all points for that turn are lost.
 
- At the end of the player's turn, the dice are handed to the next player in succession, and they have their turn. The winner is crowned after 5 turns.
