The Many Flavors of Farkle


Farkle might be the most recognizable of the few games I’ve covered since it’s been around for a little over two decades per Wikipedia, yet I was entirely unaware of the existence of this dice game involving luck and risk until this year when I began researching and collecting board and card games.  Unlike a typical board game, there are many variations on the basic game of Farkle which can be stripped down to its basic no frills dice version or perhaps something like Spicy Farkel and Farkle Flip, the card game.  I’m going to cover the ones that I’ve played and highlight the various sets available so hopefully you can decide which version works best or if perhaps you’d like to add a bit of every flavor.
