It works with all recent versions of OSX including High Sierra!

Mountain Lion Instructions for starting the game

Farkle is a fun and easy to play dice game. But be careful, it is easy to get addicted to. It also goes by other names such as Ten Thousand and 6 Dice. It is a great game for the whole family to play. In this version, it is just you against the computer opponent. Once you learn to play, you can easily teach others to play.

5 new attractive board styles are now available. One of the new boards is the default board. You can still get the previous default board and the new ones at the other farkle boards site.

This version is a demo version for the mac. You will be able to finish a random half of the games. It is $20 for the password/activation code to be able to finish them all.


Farkle Rules and Scoring

You can now play the game just using your voice. Go to Preferences then select the Sound Tab then select Speech Recognition. Note: Speech Recognition does not work with Intel Macs yet.

The 3D2f.com Software Directory" says "Absolute Farkle is just an amazing embodiment of an amazing game."
