James says:

I like how easy it is to show people how to play. There isn't a novel you have to read to them to teach them how to play. Farkle game rules and easy to learn and only take a minute to explain. Fun easy game.
Sarah says:

We love to take Farkle with us on camping trips. Easy to pack and game rules are easy to learn how to play. I like how there is no limit on how many can play although it can get lengthy waiting for everyone to take their turn (we have a fairly large family). Would recommend this simple dice game.
Joe says:

Fun game to play with the kids. If we don't have a lot of time we'll alter the winning score limit so it doesn't take so long to win. Multiple smaller games seem to work better than one larger game.
Hal says:

Very laid back easy game to play. Instead of trying to get a set number of combinations like Yahtzee, you just roll until you get the score you decided upon before playing. It's fun taking your chances sometimes and roll again.
Hellen says:

I love this game. It's a fun dice game but it throws an element of gambling into it. Should you throw again or take what you have? Scoring and learning how to play isn't hard compared to other rules that I have read.
