Pocket Farkel is an exciting, fast-moving, on-the-edge-of-your-seat, high-score dice game for the whole family and is played with two or more players. It takes about two minutes to learn, and luck, guts and strategy to win. The game is packaged in a container just 2 high and can be taken everywhere.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 5 years of age.
We played this game with friends, and wanted the pocket version for travel, restaurant wait time, etc. It is a fun game that our whole family loves--ages 4-13 plus parents. I could only find the pocket version at Fat Brain, and drove 40 minutes just to get it before our trip. Wonderful to have it compact.
Pocket Farkel really is small enough to fit in a pocket, and maybe even get lost -- the game is so tiny. While the container's truly unique in its size (about the size of a 35mm film canister), as the dice are small, perhaps this is not the greatest idea for very young children. Otherwise, it's a fun, addictive game...!
We bought a Farkel Game in Texas years ago on a trip. Everyone in the family loved it and played it often, especially when traveling by air as it is so small, easy to take along and whip out while waiting in terminals. Our 2-year-old lost one of the dice recently (she loved rattling the container) and we decided to buy a back up. Great game for all ages.
We really like pocket farkel. We play the game frequently and it is nice and small to take with us to restaurants. My younger kids use it to play a version of math dice with it. My son is learning how to add and subtract his numbers and he's not in kindergarten yet all from using this game. They like the various colors, my daughter got a set in purple and my son has a set in yellow. This could be the reason they play with it more as they like it better than white dice. It is small enough to keep in the kitchen drawer without taking up too much room.
