Great game

Just got this game and very happy with it. The scoring is the same as in a manual dice game. You can play with 1-3 other people or against device. Lovely music and nice design. Recommended!

    Meh

    Seems to me the computerized player always gets way better dice. Would be fun if it seemed a little more fair.

    Relaxing, can be played at any time

    I like this game on my Nook because I can play it in the car, outside or anywhere. Do not need a wi-fi hookup once the game is installed. Because it is much like the regular Farkle, it is fun to play.

    A oood distraction

    There is no place to show how many games I have won compared to the farkle partner I am playing. Games should always have a report of how you are progressing. It is fun for a change of pace. Not a game that you would repeat playing more that 2 or 3 times.

    The AI/glitches are a huge drawback

    Overall this game is fun and enjoyable. However, I have run into a problem where the engine for the game has glitches when it has two hot dice in a row. It will be 1-6 and then 3 pairs and it will call a farkle on the pairs. Also the AI are buggy. Some risk way too much when they shouldn't causing me to watch the opposing 3 bots to waste a grand al of 6,500 points altogether. They think 1 die is a good chance to risk 2000+ on. Duh no! Other than those complaints which have severely caused me stress the game is good.

    Bot scoring passes up points

    Generally a fun game, but biased towards human players because bot does not take all points available to it. I have seen cases where it leaves a 5 on the table when banking points, will score 3-of-a-kind when there is a 4th die with the same number still on the table, etc.

    Freezes Nook!

    I love this game, but it freezes my Nook quite often, so I have stopped playing. The bot does not take all the dice it can, and it takes more chances than it should when it is either winning or loosing by a lot. I guess that is why I win more. Does that make it more fair, I wonder, or does it give me the edge?
