The event, organised by Paul Lamond Games, will take place on Friday 10th November at the IET, Savoy Place, London. The event will see the 120 players compete across three rounds. The highest ranked players will progress to the semi-final stage and battle it out for one of the six highly sought-after final table places and the chance to become the ultimate Champion of the Dice.
Richard Wells, Managing Director at Paul Lamond Games, said: “The Perudo Championship has always been a landmark event in the board games calendar but this year we have taken it to another level due to the commitment and demand from players.
“Not only is Perudo being played in more homes, bars and universities throughout the UK than ever before, the liar dice game is extremely popular with celebrities across the globe. Stars of stage and screen to sporting legends and world-renowned entrepreneurs such as Stephen Fry, Siena Millar and Sir Richard Branson all have a passion for the game.”
Perudo is a version of liar dice which is part-luck and part-skill. Playing well requires an ability to deceive and also to detect your opponent's deception. There is no board, no setting-up, and no complicated rules... just an exciting game of guesswork, bluff and luck.
