The Simpsons Duff Dice
Before you roll your eyes at a cheap commercial dice game, know that The Simpsons Duff Dice
] is based on the proven classic Liar's Dice
. If you haven't heard it before then it goes a little something like this:
Everyone rolls Dice in a hidden cup, slapping the cup upside down onto the table like a drunken four-fingered pirate. Then each player growls at the other, sneaking a hidden peak at their dice to see how many common numbers came up in their cup. The round continues as players take turns estimating - or bluffing - how many dice across the entire table have a particular number.
Given a result of four "2"s in your cup, you might predict that there are eight two's in your five player game. The next player either calls your bluff, or increases the bid to beyond eight, using any dice result number he/she wishes.
If your bluff is called, then everyone lifts their cups. If you were found-out to be dead wrong, then chug your Duff. Otherwise the skeptic kicks back his own beer in frothy humility.
A simple, elegant, and proven party game (7.2/10 BGG) with a Simpson's motif. What could go wrong?
