Do you Farkle?

farkleI think this is a legitimate question!!  Do you farkle?  Do you even know what farkling is?  I hadn’t heard of it until a couple of weeks ago, but even then it took me awhile to try it and “get into it”.  Now, I try to farkle daily but if I don’t get to farkle, it’s not like I’m going to die!

Ok, for those who don’t know, Farkle is a dice game on Facebook!  It’s not something dirty or x-rated or some bodily function!  (Even though some of you may have thought it!)  I tried it a couple of days ago and have to say, it’s kind of fun.  Something to pass the time if you’re bored.

At first, I had NO IDEA what I was doing.  Even after reading the instructions!  I sat there thinking, “Why am I playing this stupid game?  Why am I wasting my time?!”  You “roll” the dice and based on what you roll, you either gain points or farkle depending on your number combinations.  At least they have the number combos on the side so you don’t have to memorize them all!  Since it’s the computer rolling for you, it really is a crap shoot whether you have a good game or not.  I have farkled all my turns and I have scored points in all my turns, but at the end of the day it doesn’t matter.  Unless of course you’re super competitive and HAVE to win!  Give it a try and if you don’t have FB, I’m sure you could google Farkle and come up with it!  Happy Farkling!

    This is a very cute post Sue and YES, I do Farkle. Although I’m sure not as much as a lot of people I know. I find with games like this, they really bore me fast. I do like to play it as something totally mindless that I can just sit and do and not think. I find though the thing I don’t like the most is all the “clicking” of the mouse you have to do.

    I maybe play 10 games every few days. I don’t play everyday. What else I find about Farkle is he’s either really horrible to you or he’s really good. I’m in first place right now in my group and by the morning I’m sure I’ll be knocked out. I just don’t play a whole lot but I have been lucky this week and last week.

    I am going to go and play now and see if I can beat Joys score.HE HE HE!!! I doubt it,I have had no luck lately 🙂

    I have never farkled and had never heard of it. I will restrain myself and not look it up… I have tons of work that I need to be doing… and games often suck me in for way too long (I’m currently #1 among my friends in mahjong ..hopefully it’ll stay that way so that I dont have to waste time getting the #1 spot back again!)

    Yup I play.I was just on FB a minute ago and Ive disappeared!!Im not on the list and my face is even gone!!Dumb Farkle..anyhow.I played alot when i first started playing,it was a bit adictive.I get easily bored with it at times now.Sometimes I realize Im sitting there just clicking away and not even paying attention.
    Ok,I think Im rambling..tired..bed is calling me so Ill shut up now!

      I want to add that we play Farkle with real dice sometimes.It fun because your not playing alone.First person to 5000 wins.

    ROFLMAO!! I just posted my “photo of the day” and it has a little something to do with Farkle. LOL How funny!

    Anyway, Farkle is cool! I play it from time to time but my wife plays it almost daily. It’s a great way to pass the time and try to beat your friends’ scores! 😀

  6. Laura says:

    Yeah, I do it. It’s like most of the FB games, though… I’m into it for a little while, then I get bored (like Farm Town… I haven’t been to my farm in a good month, maybe more. I should just shut it down).

    And then I get all bent when I roll my first roll, and get that “waah, waah, waah FARKLE!!!” AAAAGHGHGHGHG!!! FIRST ROLL!!!

    But yeah, when I’m wanting to kill a few minutes, I’ll hit the Farkle button.

  7. mssc54 says:

    Okay Sue why are you picking on me today?! lol

    Yes, yes I do Farkle… admittedly (by some measure) probably too much.

    I also admit that I play for the BIG SCORE! I mean why should I continue to play on a game where the score is low and there are too many Farkles? Isn’t that why the designers of the game put that little “x” next to my profile pic? So if I don’t like my score I just close out and begin a new game.

    Also I never keep dueces unless they are the only points in that particular role. I always keep the highest (single) die that counts for points on each roll, that way I can keep as many dice in play for tripple scores or higher.

    And a big CONGRATULATIONS TO JOY FOR HOLDING THIS WEEKS HIGH SCORE! (so far) 🙂

    no frackles here….seems as if im the only one in this world without a facebook acct..

  9. nikki says:

    No I don’t but I hear all about the game on FB. I tried and my laptop wouldn’t down load the game. I’m SO okay with that actually. I play only 2 games on FB and they take up enough time. This Farkle does sound fun and a lot of people are playing it. Happy Farkling…….sorry that makes me laugh after JJ turned into something Xrated!!

    I admit it… I Farkle! It started out very innocent at first, I only Farkled once or twice a week. But now, sadly, I am a farkling Farkle addict. I Farkle daily and sometimes even more than once! Someone please farkling help me! 🙂

  11. Sue says:

    Sounds like we need to start an FA group!

  12. javajunkee says:

    did you see mabels picture of her – points and farkles ?? That was a riot!

  13. javajunkee says:

    I just like typing the word farkle..we have had more fun with that farkling word than I have playing the game!

    now get your farklin’ butts over there. I think Joy is in the lead???

  14. Tosha says:

    I still don’t know a thing about farkle.. but the word.. is funny..

  15. Jerry says:

    Did Karen Joy ever figure out how to get her pic back on Farkle? I had the hight score in my group and it just went private and I went away. That really stinks because I had the best score of all groups.

  16. Cindy says:

    I had a question. If I chat with someone while I am doing Farkle Pro, is that safe? I have been paranoid about hackers. Just wondering if anyone knew. Thanks!
