Revival Round III of the Liar Game Tournament is the third round that gives losers a second chance to proceed in the tournament. The game is split into two groups. Group A is located in an internet cafe, and their host is Silien. While Group B is in a dance hall, and their host is Rabelais.
The game that is played in this round is called Bid Poker. Players are given one tablet each, and must register their fingerprints with the tablets so that no one else may use them. Each player is given 300 coins, in which one coin equals 1 million yen, giving each player 300 million yen. Through the tablets, players use these coins to bid on card lots. With the cards available in the game, the player must make a viable hand, for example a full house. First, the lots are presented (differentiated by letters, eg. Lot A, Lot B, etc.) and players have 30 minutes consideration time. After this, bidding begins in alphabetical order, and bidding lasts for 5 minutes per lot. After the bidding for a lot is over, the winner of the lot (this highest bidder) is announced and bidding for the next lot begins.
After all the initial bidding is over, players have 10 minutes to decide which cards they want to discard. This is known as the change session. All discarded cards are put into lots, in the order of which they were discarded, and are grouped by player (for example if the first player to discard is player X and he discards 4 of spades and 5 of spades, Lot A would have 4 of spades and 5 of spades. If player Y is second to discard and only discards 3 of diamonds, Lot B would have 3 of diamonds). When time is up, the catalogue of lots discarded is announced and players are given 30 minutes consideration time. Then bidding begins again in alphabetical order, and bidding lasts for 5 minutes per lot. The winner is announced, and bidding for the next lot begins. After all the bidding is finished, the next change session begins and the process is repeated. There are 5 change sessions, and after this the placements are announced.
If players are unable to make a hand or have less than 5 cards in their possession, they have no placement and become a "pig" and must pay 150 million yen as punishment.
If two players bid the same amount of coins on the same lot, the player who entered their bid first will win the lot.
First place earns 100 million yen as prize, second place earns 40 million yen and third place earns 10 million yen. The prize increases as the number of "pigs" increases. For example, if there are two pigs as opposed to one, first place earns 200 million yen, second place earns 80 million yen and third place earns 20 million yen. If there are three pigs, first place earns 300 million yen, second place earns 120 million yen and third place earns 30 million yen.
At the end of the game, players must only pay back 100 million yen out of the 300 million yen they were given in the beginning. The remainder is the prize money.
