Mind Sports Olympiad: Liars Dice (aka Perudo/Dudo)

If a player makes a bid and another player believes that this bid actually reflects the *exact* quantity of the specified die face-value in play, then they should call Jonti. When Jonti is called, the round ends and all the dice are revealed. If correct, the player calling Jonti is awarded a die, bringing it back in to play. If incorrect, the calling player loses a die. E.g. If Player A makes a bid of 3 x 2 and Player B calls Jonti, it is only a correct call if there are *exactly* 3 x 2 (including any wild aces that are in play). No player can have more than the maximum five die in play (and so Jonti should only be called by a player who has less than five die in play)! Jonti must be called *before* any subsequent bid is placed, and Jonti cannot be called by an adjacent player i.e. when the bid has been made by the player preceding you. Hence, Jonti can never be called in a two-person round. A successful call of Jonti has an added bonus as the player also starts the bidding in the next round.

What's different about 7 Wonders Duel is that, as the title suggests, the game is solely for two players, with the players not drafting cards simultaneously from hands of cards, but from a display of face-down and face-up cards arranged at the start of a round. A player can take a card only if it's not covered by any others, so timing comes into play as well as bonus moves that allow you to take a second card immediately. As in the original game, each card that you acquire can be built, discarded for coins, or used to construct a wonder.
