# Palafico round in Perudo

We played a game of Perudo the other day and ran into a situation during a palafico round.

Assume there are three players left. Player A has just lost their 4th die, Player B also has only one die left, and Player C has a few left. A opens with a bid of two aces. Can B then bid two twos? How about three twos?

The rules state that during a palafico round aces are not wild, but it doesn't seem to clarify whether a bid in non-wild aces is still worth double.

Good question! I agree that the rules aren't completely clear here. We play this by treating the aces in a palafico round exactly as if they were normal numbers. So in your example both `two twos` and `three twos` would be valid bids by B.
Think about the purpose of the doubling rule for wild aces. In a normal bid, when you say `five threes`, you are making an estimate about the number of `threes` plus the number of aces. But when you bid on aces, you are bidding on aces alone. The doubling rule exists to make these bids comparable.
