In 1532, Francisco Pizarro and a small band of conquistadors captured Atahualpa, the last Inca emperor of Peru. Legend has it that Pizarro heard unusual sounds coming from Atahualpa's chamber--Shake, Shake, Shake... Slam--followed by rapid talking and peals of laughter. Intrigued, Pizarro visited Atahualpa, and from him learned the game of Perudo. Pizarro brought Perudo, along with untold amounts of gold, back with him to Spain. The gold has long since been spent, but people throughout Spain still play the game to this day.
Shake the dice cups and slam them down on the table. Then take turns guessing how many of any given number (for example, 5 sixes) are underneath all the cups until someone says, "Dudo" (I doubt). The player who is wrong loses a die, and play continues as the number of dice constantly decreases. The last player left with dice is the winner. Perudo is easy to learn and play, and unless you get caught, it pays to bluff--it's the perfect game for the creative, daring, and fun-loving.
