Would it be possible to implement more scoring / play options? I have played this game with other variations that are represented here and it would be nice to be able to choose some other variations. For example:

1) Rolling 3 1's = 1000 points
2) If you already have banked the initial starting score (I usually use 1000), and during a turn you only have 1 die to roll, you can opt to pass it to you opponent to roll. If they roll a 1 or 5, they steal all of the points you've accumulated during that turn. If they roll a 2,3,4 or 6, you get to keep the points and roll all 6 dice and continue your turn.
3) If you roll 4 of a kind, it is equal to the score of a three-of-a-kind roll times 2. (ie. rolling four 2s = 400, four 3s = 600, etc.)

Does anyone else have any other suggestions?

Edit: I found a pretty good list of the official rules (as well as some variations) here: http://www.farklerules.com/the-rules-of-farkle/

1. Rolling 3 ones should be 1,000
2. Another fun variation is a 1,000 point penalty for rolling 2 farkles in a row.

I'd like to see a high score table based on the difference between the winning and losing score. e.g. the winner scores 10100 and the loser 9600 which gives a 500 point entry on the high score table which is fairly average. but occasionally you have a really good game, eg. 10500 to 4900 which would give a high score of 5600 which is well worth recording  :)
