Did you forget a rule? Was your game of Settlers unsettling? Were you backstabbed in Diplomacy? Do you want to roll more dice than you can imagine? Do you want to lie and deceive your friends? How about taunting them when they lose? Maybe with the na, na, kiss him goodbye song? Would you like to smash big cups on tables to get out the frustration of a tough week of gaming? Do you want revenge? Do you like gambling and having a wild and fun time?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then this is the event for you! Come out Friday at 11:00 pm and enjoy this great late night party event which often leads WBC in attendance. But as a late night party ender, there is no going home at midnight. You play till there is only one liar left standing.

Some people know this game as Liar's Dice. Others call it Bluff, Call My Bluff, or Perudo. Whatever, it is the ultimate game of lying and deception. Are you ready to roll those bones and press your luck?

Liar's Dice is an exciting family game that combines elements of Yahtzee, Poker, Craps, and many other games of skill. Your object is to be the last person to have dice remaining. Do you have the nerves of steel it will take to outwit, outplay and outlast your opponents and become the ultimate survivor (oops...wrong game).

We will be using standard 6-player games (with some 5-player games as needed to accommodate an odd number of entrants). Pairing will be randomly assigned with all winners (and possibly some runners-up) advancing to a 36-player semifinal round with the six winners advancing to the Final.

All basic rules will be used. A quick description of those rules will be explained at start for all who need to be refreshed (or taught). In addition to the basic rules, the following variants will be used ...
1. If the bid is exact...then everyone but the bidder loses a die.
2. You cannot lose your last die except as part of a direct challenge (note this overrules variant #1).

Most important of all is to have fun! I expect to hear lots of rattling, smashing and singing! The highlights of the evening include the initial massed shaking of the cups and a full attendee rendition of the na, na, kiss him goodbye song when the first player loses his last die! Those two things alone should be enough to entice everyone to attend. I want everyone to have a great time and see what the spirit of the WBC is all about! We have a bigger ballroom to fill this year so we’ll need a big turnout to set a new attendance record. Let’s rock Seven Springs on Friday night!
