'Liars Dice' (Drinking version)
I have been playing various games with mates recently including: 'Risk' 'Gin Rummy' and 'Liars Dice'. One of the most fun games we played though was a home made adaptation of Liars Dice into a drinking game. 5 of us had a mint time playing this game last night so I thought I share it with you. Be warned though, if you're a bit of liteweight like me then you can easilly end up drinking half a bottle of Whiskey to yourself in an hour or so = messy! :s
The rules for Liars Dice that we used are pretty simple. We started with 5 players (any amount works), each of us getting 5 dice. All players roll their dice at once but conceal the dice they roll.
After choosing who goes first at random, the first player then makes a 'bid'. For example if 2 of his concealed dice are 3's then he might guess that there are 3 or more 3's on the whole table combined (including his). The next player then has 3 options:
1) Bid that there are 3 or more 4's, 5's or 6's
2) Bid that there are 4 or more of any face value (or any number above this)
3) Call the previous bidder a 'Liar'
Play goes on with players upping their bids until a liar is called. At that point the player who is wrong in this dispute must discard a die. After a player has lost all 5 dice he/she is out!
Now the fun part. With 5 players we used thefollowing rules which can easiily be adjusted for different circumstances:
1st out - rolls 2x6 sided dice and drinks the number of shots they roll
2nd out - rolls a 10 sided die and drinks the number of shots they roll
3rd out - rolls 2x4 sided dice and drinks the number of shots they roll
2nd place - rolls one 6 sided die and drinks...
1st place - rolls one 4 sided die and drinks...
One final rule we added to this was that before downing each shot the drinker gets to roll a 6 sided die and if they roll a 6 they get to nominate someone else to drink that shot.
1 bottle lasted us 2 games but a second bottle is always handy ;)
