High Roller Farkle is a fun and exciting dice game for up to four players. Beautiful graphics and elegant game play make this a must have game for your iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad.
Using six dice, each player takes a turn rolling the dice and must set aside at least one scoring die (1's, 5's, triples, 3 pairs, or a run of 6.) The player's turn continues with the remaining dice, as long as there is a scoring number or combination.
The player's turn ends when they decide to stop and score their accumulated points or until they have a scoreless throw (they Farkle). When all six dice are scored in a turn, the player can roll them all again and continue to accumulate points. Scoring combinations (triples, 3 pairs, or a run of 6.) only count when made with a single throw of all six dice.
The first player to score a total of 10,000 or above wins the game! (As long as players with a turn left, don't exceed your score.)
If you like games like Yahtzee(tm) Craps, or any other dice game with a blend of skill and luck, then Ten Thousand (aka Dice, 5000, Farkle, Farkel, Deluxe Farkel, Zonk, Zilch, Wimp Out, Hot Dice, Buzzball, Oh Crap, Greed, Squelch) is the game for you!

What's New in Version 2.7

Two problems away from great
1) The AI only seems to have one strategy - as the aggression increases, the more likely the computer player is to roll again. But compared to other single-player implementations of Farkle, there is no subtlety or finesse. It's "grab all the ones and fives!"
2) I have been unable to find a single online opponent through game center :(
I'd be fine with (1) if (2) wasn't also a problem.
It's a shame, because this is the most configurable app I've seen in the app store. The UI - while unusual - gets out of your way really quickly. And I find myself playing it over other apps despite the AI issues.
There are some minor quibbles, such as tying the volume to the main iPhone volume instead of maintaining an in-game level, and the fact that turns end so quickly you can't tell what your last roll was (except that you know you Farkled).
But if you want a clean, easy to use single-player Farkle game with a lot of configurability, and you don't mind the fact you'll probably only play your friends online, with this app you'll get everything above, plus an incredibly fast resume, even from a cold start.
It can be better
One of the greatest things about this game are statistics.
However, it really needs a better/professional design with a better user interface. It's ugly.
I would buy additional dices but they are very simple, like those Windows 3.1 bitmaps.
And regarding online multiplayer please consider to add turn based mode because it's a lot easier to keep playing this game with friends when we don't have to start and finish a game in a single moment.
With a professional design and a turn based (online) feature this game would be 5/5 for sure.
Make a real iPad app
I guess in this latest upgrade it was too much of a bother to make it playable in landscape, which is how I use my iPad 97% of the time. Also, to play against the iPad, the only option is to select iPhone in the settings. I love the app, but go all the way and make a true app for iPad.
