A Basic Game

It’s a good way to pass time. I have played a similar version of this game with real dice for years but, I think if I hadn’t, I woud be very confused by the rules. Mayby they could be accessed without having to leave the game. I’d like to make some additional recommendations to make this game a 5 star. 1. Put your high score where it can be seen as an incentive to get a higher score. 2. Make a two player version. 3. The difference between the “bank” and the dollar sign amounts took a bit to understand can this be shown differently? 4. One should not have to go back to the main menu to play again. It’s annoying. Can’t a person just click somewhere on the game screen? 5. Put the dollar sign and the Farkle cup in opposite corners to lessen the chance of mistakenly hitting the wrong one.

Fun and simple, yet seems to not keep score properly

Maybe it's just for me, but this game does not seem to keep score as I believe it should. To verify, I even clicked the in-game hyperlink for the point values on dice rolls which were the same as I remember, but not as the game uses. For example, four of a kind would only double the normal value as opposed to making it an even 1000 points as the rules would suggest. By this logic, four 2's should be 1000 points but when I play it only values it at 400.

Still fun to play, and a nice quick way to pass time. I'd give the game a 5 stars if they would rectify this.

NO SUPPORT!!!

Both the offered support options do nothing but open advertising.

Glitch #whatever: Four three's and two four's rolled. I select all six dice, indicating that I want to split the three's and get 750 for three pair. The game takes away all six dice, but only gives me the 600 for four three's. Either don't take the four's or credit me with the three pair, and [I] should be able to decide whether to take the 600 or the 750 option!

Just reread the rules. Four of a kind with a pair kicker is supposed to count 3,000 points! And, four of a kind is supposed to count 1,000 points. At least the game is consistent.

Old five star review:

Basically a totally mindless waste of time—that is so addictive that I have been playing it for years. When you need to keep your forebrain busy so that your hindbrain can solve some problem, this is one of the perfect tools for that job!

Side note for the developer(s). You don't post contact information so: "die" is singular, "dice" is plural, "dices" is a verb, never a noun! As in, "He dices for a living." i.e., It's just not a good word.
