Description of App

iFarkle Free is the ad-supported version of iFarkle.

iFarkle is an addictive and entertaining 1 or 2 player version of the dice game Farkle (or Farkel) for the iPhone and iPod touch. Play with a friend or against the computer to be the first to achieve more than 10,000 points by rolling the dice for an exciting number of different scoring combinations.

Two-player mode includes the option of automatically flipping the screen between turns for players sitting across from each other at a table, on the floor, in the car, or on a plane.

iFarkle is simple to learn, and fun to play.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE COMPUTER DOES NOT "CHEAT"

The dice rolling mechanism is the same for both human and computer players: It is completely random.

If you are finding that the computer is always beating the pants off of you then you may want to either reduce the Computer's Play Style aggressiveness to "Meek" or simply take some chances and play more aggressively yourself.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q : Why doesn't the Pass button seem to be working?
A : Each player must score at least 500 points during a single turn to get into the game. Once this has been achieved any points accumulated during subsequent turns are added to the player's total score.

Q : How do you play iFarkle?
A : The rules can be found by touching the "About" button on the bottom-right corner of the game screen.

I can't seem to roll or pass, ever. Those buttons always seem to be dimmed. Example. I start the app and select new, single-player game. App Layout: Player Computer 0 0 0 3 button 6 button 2 button 3 button 6 button 1 button Roll dimmed button pass dimmed button new game button stats button options button about button I will select the two 3's and two 6's, in hopes of getting three pairs. Those roll and pass buttons down there are still dimmed! I do have clasic scoring enabled, if that makes any difference... What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

Hi! In the example you just quoted, you don't have three pairs, you only have two pairs, so you can't score points with all six dice: in this particular case, you should select the 1 and roll again. You can only score pairs if there are three of them, or you can score points for three, four, five or six of a kind for any number except for ones and fives which can give you points even if they only appear once. I hope this helps!

I have enjoyed iFarkle free ever since I got my first iPod. I usually won a little over half the games, which I d not consider cheating. It seems that after the developers updated iFarkle free to fix iOS 7 bugs, it began to cheat. Out of eighty-five games, I have lost fifty, and I am susally beaten by at least one thousand points, sometimes more. I even adjusted the "Aggressive" settings to Meek, hoping to even my chances. I also noticed that I would usually get lower rolls, in the two to three hundred range, while the computer could easily roll a thousand or more, expecially if I was a little ahead. I love the game of Farkle, and hope this bug will be fixed before I decide to delete the app.
