When playing the game, press B to reveal the score table.
When viewing the High Scores, press Up and Down simultaneously for 3 seconds to clear the scores.


Love the scrolling dice in the title it reminds me of the days I used to make Wii channel banners.

Now there’s a game I never thought I’d see on the arduboy. Very well done! Super polished!

I would love to take credit for these but its all @Vampirics work. He can polish the literal turd …

Lol… Not sure how to take that one :sweat_smile:

In that analogy my code is the turd. :thinking:

Hmm. Ok I won’t push that analogy too far :sweat_smile:.
I am glad it turned out great

well, you do use x in for loops :astonished:


Is it normal for me to laugh that much right now?

@filmote, I told you, people notice these things :P

Don’t you? You should give it a go … its liberating!

uiint8_t care_factor = 0;

for (uint8_t x = 255; x > care_factor; --x) {
  Serial.println("Not listening to you");

I have just posted a new version of the game … lets call it V1.1. It includes a little graphic that is shown when you score with all 6 dice.


uint8_t effort { 255 };
While(effort-- >0) serial.println("No one looks at the source");

Obviously some do!   

My primary program for the Arduboy is Toolbox for making sprites. After I reached the eight sprite limit for saving to the EEPROM, I wished I had Farkle with me on the rest of the bus ride. I flashed it to my Arduboy as soon as I got home.


Just was playing this on the FX and realized that the keypress (hold up/down) to clear scores conflicts with the keypress to return to bootloader. It looks like usually, Farkle does a clear just before the bootloader activates. I might submit a patch to change the keys for clear to left/right to not conflict.

Oh, that’s unfortunate … but I did predate the FX functionality!

Can you clear the scores on all screens or only on High Score screen? If its only the High Score screen then I wouldn’t bother changing them myself.

Also, glad people are still playing some of these older games!

Ah, it looks like it only affects the high score screen. In that case, it’s just a caveat to skip past that before resetting and not something that breaks storage. Cool!
