Overview

Ludo is a simple board game for two to four players, in which the players race their four tokens from start to finish according to dice rolls.

Rules

At the start of the game, the player's four pieces are placed in the start area of their color. Players take it in turn to throw a die. A player must first throw a six to be able to move a piece from the starting area onto the starting square.

In each subsequent turn the player moves a piece forward 1 to 6 squares as indicated by the die. When a player throws a 6 the player may bring a new piece onto the starting square, or may choose to move a piece already in play. Also, each time a player gets a 6 on the die, the player gets another turn as a bonus, but if any player gets 6 on a die three times in a row it is counted as a foul and the player therefore loses their turn.

If a player gets a 6 the player can separate chances (the player can separate 6 on one piece and 3 on the other if the player gets a 6 and a 3, if the pieces are already out of the house). The player can also play the numbers (6 & 3) using the same piece in any order. If a player cannot make a valid move they must pass the die to the next player.

If a player's piece lands on a square containing an opponent's piece, the opponent's piece is captured and returns to the starting area. A piece may not land on a square that already contains a piece of the same color.

Once a piece has completed a circuit of the board it moves up the home column of its own color. The player must throw the exact number to advance to the home square. The winner is the first player to get all four of their pieces onto the home square.

Have Fun!

    E version of trouble

    Fairly good game. However the peg responseslowly at times. Also, the board rotates- a feature that should have an "off" option.

    Good game

    This game is very similar to what I remember as Parchese, a family favorite. I love the bounce to the players, too. The digital version works the way it should--thanks for a good game.
