The Sunday Miscellanea - Liar's Dice (1987)

Once more unto the breach . . . with a game of Liar's Dice (1987).  This one tends to be at the ready for times when we have more people than games to play and need to squeeze folks in.  However, last Tuesday, when I found myself at Taco Bell around lunchtime, it became the game of choice for Tom, Brian, and I.  Allow me to say up front that what talent I may possess for fibbing falls far short of what these venerable prevaricators can muster.  When the crowd is larger, I can sometimes slip through the web of their deceit but when just the three of us are in attendance, I am the last honest man in Bluffsville.

The description from Board Game Geek is as follows:
Liar's Dice is a dice game where each player is given five dice and cup to roll and hide them with. Players make successively higher declarations regarding the results of all the dice remaining in the game, e.g. "there are ten sixes". However, someone can always contest the bid. When that happens, all the dice are revealed and either the bidder or the caller loses dice, depending on who was correct. The last player with dice is the winner.

Okay.  I lied.  I won on this day and did so in grand fashion.  I even crudely Photoshopped the guy out behind Tom's right shoulder in the first picture but left him lurking in the third pic.  Serves you right for reading my blog.  I am a bad man.
