What is Perudo / Liar’s Dice about?

As a casual gamer, I am constantly looking for fun and easy-to-learn board games to play with my friends.  Liar’s Dice, also known as Perudo. is a seemingly simple game which i have a love-hate relationship.

What is Liar’s Dice?

Liar’s Dice is a dice-based board game that requires players to bluff and outwit each other. It originated in South America and has gained popularity all over the world, thanks to its addictive gameplay.

How to Play Liar’s Dice?

The game can be played with 2 or more players, and each player begins with  a set of five dice. The game’s goal  is to be the last one standing by correctly guessing and outbidding your opponents.

The game begins with all players rolling their dice simultaneously, keeping them hidden from others. You then take turns bidding on the number of a specific die face that you think is present in the total among everyone’s dice, including your own.

For example, if a player rolls two 3s and bids “three 3s,” they believe that there are at least three dice with the number 3 among all players’ hidden dice. The next player can either bid a higher number or call out the previous player’s bluff. If the bidder is caught bluffing, they lose one of their dice. However, if the bidder is correct, the challenger loses one of their dice.

The game continues until there is only one player left with any dice remaining or until a player reaches the agreed-upon number of rounds.

Why I Love It

Liar’s Dice is a good mix of luck and strategy. The bluffing adds an exciting twist to the game, making players second-guess their opponents’ bids. It also requires quick thinking and decision-making skills, which keeps the game fast-paced and engaging.

Liar’s Dice can be played anywhere – at home, in a bar, or even while camping. All you need are dice and a few friends, making it an ideal game for any occasion.

Why I Hate It

The game can become repetitive after a few rounds, especially if you’re playing with the same group of people. Some may find the element of bluffing intimidating , which can make the game less fun. And if you can’t take losing because someone challenged and caught you bluffing, this might not be for you.

Who Would Enjoy Liar’s Dice?

Liar’s Dice is a game that can be enjoyed by both casual gamers and experienced players. It’s easy to learn, making it perfect for beginners, but also has enough complexity to keep seasoned gamers entertained. People who enjoy games like Poker or Blackjack will also appreciate the bluffing aspect of Liar’s Dice.
