I've always played Perudo in a slightly different way than how it's implemented here.
For example, after a bid of "five 5s" I'm used to being able to raise to "six" of any face, as in "six 2s", "six 3s", etc.
Here on BGA, instead, I can only raise to a higher number of dice without decreasing the face, as in "six 5s", "six 6s", "seven 5s", "seven 6s", etc.
I understand this is a traditional game with lots of variants, but I think this one would push every round to bidding on 5s and 6s, which doesn't look right to me. It might be intended and might even be better this way, I'm not sure yet.
My point is that I'm sure that my version corresponds to the "official" italian rules for the board game, however I can't find them online. I found these official-looking rules instead, which say:
I don't mind learning the game the other way around, but I was wondering if the rule here was intended or if it should be considered a bug, since it differs from the official (?) rules.Rules wrote:The player to the opener’s left then makes a call and the bidding proceeds
around the table. Each bid must be higher than the last. So a call of “seven
fours” can be followed by, say, “seven fives” or by “eight twos”, but not by
“six sixes” or by “seven twos”.
