At 2” high and available with more than 95 labels for states, hobbies and lifestyles, this game may be used to teach math and strategy skills. The aim is to score 10,000 points by rolling dice and collecting combinations. Risky players will keep rolling for more points, but there's always the danger they will earn no points, or Farkel.
— With scoring rules on the package, Pocket Farkel is self-contained. Even climbers have played the game at the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. Families laud the game as a perfect time filler for long trips or short breaks. One version of Pocket Farkel received an average of 5 out of 5 stars from 18 reviews on, as of Nov. 2009. Amy Barrett, owner of Lasso the Moon Wonderful Toys in Helena, Mont., told TDmonthly in fall 2009 that her store is “selling quite a bit” of Pocket Farkel since its low cost and small size make it easy to stock near registers as an impulse item. Of 39 retailers surveyed in March 2010, two said it's their top-selling travel game.
