App said “player eliminated” and ended the game when we weren’t even close to 10,000. Don’t waste your time. Update: it should say why when you’re eliminated: “Player eliminated: 3 Farkles” It was definitely not clear. I skimmed the rules and definitely missed that part. I’ve never heard of that rule in all the years I’ve been playing. That being said, the instruction page is not very pleasant to read. Not sure if it’s the colors or font, but I wanted to get off of that page as soon as I got on it. I definitely couldn’t care less about the loss lol it was that there was no explanation why other than “eliminated”. The watch app does seem to work well though, which is why I downloaded in the first place.

Thank you for your update and suggestions. I'll work on showing the reason for elimination when it occurs. It isn't well known what are the original game rules and there're multiple variants, thus this game might differ slightly from what you're familiar with, sorry about that. I'll also tweak the Instructions page a little so that it's easier on the eyes and more aesthetically pleasing to look at.
Good to know that you liked the watch app! :)

Hello, you must have overlooked the game rules: "If none of your dice rolled earn points, you Farkle. Three Farkles in a row and you are eliminated. Instantly. No questions asked."
Thus, it looks like you Farkled thrice, and you're kicked out of the game. I'm sorry for the loss, but this is intentional game design.
Hope this helps!
