Dice, or Farkle, is a mini-game in Kingdom Come: Deliverance. It is played using six-sided dice (one dice is called a "die")
The first one to reach the specified amount of points wins. 2 players switch turns in this game. One’s turn is ended when he/she pass the turn submitting all points gained in that turn or by getting a bust forfeiting all points gained in that turn.As long as you get a 1 or a 5 dot die it’s not bust but if you have no 1 or 5 dot die then it’s bust unless there are at least three dice with the same number of dots.
- Note: The following information is from the in-game tutorial.
Six dice are thrown and the players alternate turns. Points are gained for every 1 or 5 thrown, and for three or more of a kind of any other number. Scoring is as follows:
- a single 1 is worth 100 points;
- a single 5 is worth 50 points;
- three of a kind is worth 100 points multiplied by the given number, e.g. three 4s are worth 400 points;
- three 1's are worth 1,000 points;
- four or more of a kind is worth double the points of three of a kind, so four 4s are worth 800 points, five 4s are worth 1,600 points etc.
A player's turn always begins by throwing all six dice. The player then uses 'E' to select and set aside scoring dice, and at least one die must always be set aside. Then the player can throw the remaining dice again using 'F' and the situation repeats. Scoring combinations are counted only for the current throw, not the entire turn.
The key element of the game is that if a throw does not produce a single scoring die, then the player's turn is over and all points scored up to that throw are forfeit. It is then the opposing player's turn to throw. For that reason, it's best to end your turn using 'Q' before the risk that not a single die will score gets too high. Sometimes it's better not to set aside all the scoring dice you you've thrown, so you stand a better chance of scoring higher on the next throw.
Since each player uses his own dice, there's also an opportunity to cheat. But finding loaded dice isn't so easy.
