The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth... Unless you're playing Liar's Dice!
This classic parlor game of bluffing and bidding will test your mettle and your poker face! Roll the dice and bid on what you think your opponents are holding. don't slet that perspiration show, because if you lose a challenge then you lose a die. If you lose all your dice, then you're out of the game!
Honesty is not always the best policy. Play Liar's Dice, where bluffing your opponents is not only fun, it's strategy!
This is the most fantastic board game I have ever played. I could not find it in London and Istanbul 'cause they say the game is no longer available. I am looking forward to finding it!
In China and Hong Kong, you can see many people playing this game in pub. You can find it EVERYWHERE. Beer manufacturers even provide unlimited cups and dice as promotion items. The reason is because, according to local rule of game, loser has to drink (normally 1/4 to 1 bottle of beer). You can imagine, the more you drink, the more difficult you can think and focus. The more difficult you think, the easier you lose. Lot more bottles will then be consumed.
I recommend 'penalty' should be added as part of the rule. This can ensure that player will only lie in the right time. Otherwise, the players will not be serious.
Note: In China and Hong Kong, playing liar dice is even part of an interview test if you wanna be pub waiter/waitress.
This game has assumed many different names and variations Call My Bluff, Bluff, Perudo, Liars Dice and probably several other names I dont even know. I have even played Liars poker, which is the same concept only with cards. There is only one reason variations of this game are known worldwide and have withstood the test of time its a lot of fun! I just recently picked up a copy of Liars Dice and within 10 minutes of opening the box I had read the rules and we were playing. My only disappointment was that it only accommodated 4 players and there were 6 of us. This was easily fixed through, we rummaged through other games and quickly were able to come up with 10 more dice, then we just grabbed 2 cups out of the cupboard. Just treat the 1 on each die as a star and you are good to go. I read a Perudo review and the reviewer said that they have played with 20 or more players before! So as long as you can come up with enough dice, there is really no limit on how many people can play. If you dont have dice from other games just go to any game store and you can buy them for as cheap as a quarter each. And just because Im a bit anal with my games Im going to take a Sharpie and draw a little star over the 1 on the extra dice.
All in all, I highly recommend this game as a party game. I wouldnt recommend playing it with fewer than 3 people. As a general rule, the more players, the more fun the game is.
