If you want to try your hand at gambling, it’s possible to play the dice game of Farkle in every respectable tavern. The goal of this two-player game is to be the first to reach a certain number of points. Six dice are thrown and the players alternate turns. Points are gained for every one or five thrown, and for three or more of a kind of any other number. A full description of the scoring is included in the game’s help menu.

A player’s turn always begins by throwing all six dice. The player then selects and sets aside scoring dice (at least one dice must always be set aside). Then the player can throw the remaining dice again and the situation repeats. Scoring combinations are counted for present throw, not the entire turn.

The key element of the game is that if a throw does not produce a single scoring dice, then the player’s turn is over and all points gained up to that point during the turn are lost. It is then the opposing player’s turn to throw. Therefore, it is advisable to end your turn before there is a significant increase in the chance that not a single dice will score. It is also often worth not setting aside all scoring dice so that you will have a better chance of scoring higher on the next throw. And since each player throws his own dice, there is also an opportunity to cheat. But it is more difficult to find loaded dice.
