Farkle Scoring

Below are the scoring combinations allowed in Farkle. The point values given are typical, but can vary from venue-to-venue. On the settings page you can modify the point values for all of these scorings or disallow certain scorings altogether by setting their value to zero.

100 points for each rolled one. | |

50 points for each rolled five. | |

1000 points for three-ones. | |

200 points for three-twos. | |

300 points for three-threes. | |

400 points for three-fours. | |

500 points for three-fives. | |

600 points for three-sixes. | |

Each additional die in a set increases the value of the set by a like amount. So while three-threes are worth 300, four-threes are worth 600, five-threes are worth 900, and six-threes are worth 1200. | |

1500 points for a six die straight. | |

750 points for three pairs. (Note: some game variants don't allow 4-of-a-kind plus a pair to be counted as three-pair. Picky picky!) | |

Although two triplets can always be scored separately (for a total of 900 points in this case), some rules variants offer 2500 points for two triplets in a single throw. | |

This is a despised six-die farkle, but in some circles folks agree that farkling with six dice is just too horrible for a family game and instead award points for this. (Like 500 of them!) |
