Description Edit | History

Liar's Dice is a dice game where each player is given five dice and cup to roll and hide them with. Players make successively higher declarations regarding the results of all the dice remaining in the game, e.g. "there are ten sixes". However, someone can always contest the bid. When that happens, all the dice are revealed and either the bidder or the caller loses dice, depending on who was correct. The last player with dice is the winner.

There is also a public domain dice game known as Liar's Dice. This game is often played with Poker Dice, and differs from the marketed versions in that players only declare on their own hand's value (as opposed to all dice being in play), using poker-hand values.

History

- It is believed the Spanish conqueror Francisco Pizarro brought the original game to Spain from South America in the 16th century, and that it might have originated with the Incas: Perudo History.
- E.S. Lowe published Liar's Dice in 1974. It included a version of the rules with other dice games.
- Milton Bradley published Liar's Dice in 1987. It is the first instance of the six-player, betting board, die re-roll version of the game later published as Bluff / Call My Bluff by F.X. Schmid in 1993. Both these games were designed by Richard Borg.
- Published as Perudo by University Games in 1994 with slightly different rules. Perudo adds an extra option of bidding on wild ones.
- There was an F.X. Schmid re-issue in 1997.
- Ravensburger Spieleverlag GmbH, having acquired F.X. Schmid, re-published Bluff in 2001.
- There was also a version with 2 cups published by Luckicup Co. (1850 Garden Tract Rd., Richmond, California) called Luckigames which also contained rules for nine other dice games: Boss Dice; Pee Wee; Ship, Captain, Mate and Crew; Elimination; Poker Dice; Twenty-One; Engineer's Dice; Razzle Dazzle. Year uncertain.
- Endless Games (I) published a 4-player version of Liars Dice in 2002.
- The game, Pirate's Dice, portrayed in the 2006 film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, is essentially the same, but has simplified rules.

1 Circle Board
I prefer this board I made, instead of the original rectangle. I printed it on A4 sticker paper, stack it on cardboard and cut it outside and inside. On the center hole I put the lost dice of each player.
