A player choosing to sacrifice their turn (usually in a frivolous manner) instead of playing a valid and beneficial move is said to be farkling
. The derivation of the word is unknown.
In recent years, the term 'farkle' has come to mean a specialised kind of pass, where the player does not move, but performs a number of actions which affect the state of the game in a small (but sometimes significant) manner.
A farkle performed during a Parks and Greens Cascade is properly referred to as a parkle.
