iFarkle is an addictive and entertaining 1 or 2 player version of the dice game Farkle (or Farkel) for the iPhone and iPod touch. Play with a friend or against the computer to be the first to achieve more than 10,000 points by rolling the dice for an exciting number of different scoring combinations.
Two-player mode includes the option of automatically flipping the screen between turns for players sitting across from each other at a table, on the floor, in the car, or on a plane.
iFarkle is simple to learn, and fun to play.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE COMPUTER DOES NOT "CHEAT"
The dice rolling mechanism is the same for both human and computer players: It is completely random.
If you are finding that the computer is always beating the pants off of you then you may want to either reduce the Computer's Play Style aggressiveness to "Meek" or simply take some chances and play more aggressively yourself. :)

Ratings and Reviews
A beautiful version of the beloved classic game
I’ve played a lot of different game apps and this is hands-down THE best game you can get on the App Store. This game just doesn’t get old. It’s fun even after I play it over and over, the replay value is great. I don’t know what some of these reviewers are saying about the computer being unfair or cheating, because I’ve won more games than I’ve lost, by far. Quite simply, you can’t go wrong by getting this game.
This game is very simple but a lot of fun. I'm really competitive so this game keeps me entertained for a long time. I have had it on my phone for years now. It's always fun and quick to play.
iFarkle needs a random number generator
This app does not have fair dice rolls. Over time the computer gets more favorable outcomes. This occurs in the frequency of high scoring rolls and in the frequency of filling all six dice.
The result is higher scores and fewer Farkles for the computer. If you play the game often, you should expect to lose a lot.
The programming is not very sophisticated when the computer chooses which dice to keep. Often there are high scores rolled that are not recognized. Also when the computer has accumulated lots of points (3000) it will continue to roll and put those points at risk instead of cashing in and passing the dice.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
