Liars’ dice Common hand
A variation of Lair’s dice is the common hand, which is played two or more players. Like any other variety of Liar dice, it’s easy to learn and can be wagered in. However, it is still played bluffing and deceiving your opponents.
In the common hand, use five of the players cut each and dice cups. In each round, a player must roll his dice and keep them hidden from his opponents covering him from a cup. Then a player starts bidding, choosing a 2 to 6 faces of the dice and guessing the amount of the dice face that came out of the table. 1 is a special face and is considered wild. When three people play this game the lowest bid would be “a 2”, while “fifteen 6s” would be the highest.
Each player can challenge the previous bid or raise it. By raising an offer, raise the amount of the dice face or select any face increasing its amount. If the player thinks that the last bidder gets him wrong, he can challenge him and then all the dice would be discovered to determine who got him right. A successful bid has the same number or more of the dice face. In this case the previous victories of the bidder. If not, the one who challenged him wins.
There are some variations of the common hand. One is where the defense and losing player would lose one die in the next round. For example, when player 1 loses a challenge, he loses one die in the next round. He would be in an unfavorable position because his opponents have more information to have 4 dice only. When a player continues to lose a challenge, he would always lose a die. If he has no dice, then it’s from the game.
Another variation is where 1s are not wild and are a special offer. When bidding 1, the amount must be rounded up the amount of the prior bid. By switching back, every other face of the dice is allowed as long as the amount should be a minimum of one plus double that amount of 1s. However, the other variation makes 6 like the wild face rather the 1.
When the player can bet the current bid call as exact already is another variation of the game. He could discount the raising or challenge here. When the dice are revealed and they see the bid as lower or higher, the bidder then loses one die. If they are exactly correct, get an extra die.
