After a year of qualifying events, the prize at the 26th running of the annual championships was awarded to reigning Scottish Perudo Champion, Ian Smith.

The grand final was hosted by Konnie Huq at The Groucho Club in Soho. Cosmo Fry, the inventor of Perudo, celebrities and buyers along with the qualifiers from the Scotland, London and Southampton events, all attended the event.

Richard Wells, sales director of Paul Lamond Games, said: “The Perudo Championships has been running for over a quarter of a century now and, true to form, last night’s event was fast-paced, fun and full of nail biting tension. It’s fantastic to see that in its 26th year, Perudo and the championships are still continuing to grow in popularity. For the second year running our London qualifying event was oversubscribed in less than 24 hours. It is a game which has a great following and evokes such passion and competitiveness along with the usual dose of bluff, counterbluff and hilarity.”
