Roll the Bones ... Then ... Up
Description: Did you forget a rule in ASL? 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 Liar's
Dice is the game for you! Come out Friday at 11:00 pm and
enjoy this great "late night" party event which led
WBC in attendance again last year. .
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 (ooops...wrong
We will be using standard 6-player games (with some 5-player
games as needed to accomodate 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
2. You cannot lose your last die except as part of a direct
challenge (note this supercedes 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 this event :) I want everyone
to have a great time and see what the spirit of the WBC is all
