Perudo – Game Review and Competition

We love a game night in this house – whether it be Family night with the kids or a night with cheese, wine and friends! We were very happy to be sent Perudo to have a play with as it is actully good for both scenarios as it is suitable for ages 8 years and up. (2-6 players can play).

Perudo has some famous friends including Stephen Fry who says it is ‘The second most addictive thing ever to come out of America….’ and Richard Branson who says that ‘Whether on a balloon or a plan, even a train, Perudo is the game…’ – with endorsements like that we were expecting good things

The game comes in a great tin;  inside you get 6 different coloured cups, 1 lid, 30 dice, 1 cloth pouch and the rule book. It fits in the tin perfectly which makes it great for storage (which is really important for a mum like me). The tin also comes in handy if you want to take the game around with you to gatherings…say during the up and coming season of Christmas.

This is a game of skill (well partly) and bluffing! Each person starts with a coloured cup and five (matching coloured) dice and a cup, which is used for shaking the dice and concealing your dice from your opponent. You take it in turns to predict how many dice of certain numbers (for example three, sixes) are hidden under the cups around the table. Each round the loser loses a dice, as players lose all their dice they are out and the winner is the only person with dice left at the end.

The rules seem a little daunting but after a couple of rounds you find it is simple to play. The more you play the quicker you can go, the fun builds as you work out which one of your friends can bluff the hardest! You can play with as little as 2 players, although we like to play it with more – it adds to the options of number combinations and the laughter.

This Friday (9th November) the 29th Perudo Championship will take place in London with over 140 players battling it out to see who will become this year’s ‘World Perudo Champion’. This sounds amazing – a whole competition dedicated to this game! If you are interested in attending to cover the event or even take part please email perudo@perudoworldchamps.co.uk for more information.
