Having never heard of Perudo before we were intrigued as to what it was, even more so once it arrived and found all it contained were lots of coloured dice and cups…
Based on the classic Peruvian game of Liar’s Dice, Perudo is an exciting game of guesswork, bluff and luck that can be played anywhere by anybody, though consummate liars do have an advantage! There is no board, no setting up and no complicated rules, so this makes the ideal after dinner or travel game. This version packs away neatly into a tin to protect it and make it more portable.
First up, if you have children you will appreciate the tin, I really do wish more games came in tins as they are so much easier to maintain and less likely to be damaged by little ones (which of course means you are then left with lots of game pieces on the loose!)
Aimed at children age 8 years and older I completely agree as it even took me a little while to get my head around so younger ones might find it a little frustrating.
Each player starts with a cup and matching dice of the same colour, you shake the dice inside the cup and then flip it over so the dice remain hidden beneath the cup. Players can peek at their own dice and have to guess the total number of the dice until one player thinks they can guess no higher and says Dudo.
Everyone uncovers their dice and starting with the player that stated Dudo you count up the dice and the one who lost loses a dice. This continues until only one die remains and that is the winner. It is a little complicated and takes some getting use to but once you learn how to bluff your way through its quite an entertaining game!
