Ludo - 1970s


Ludo is a traditional board game, typically of a square shaped board that originated from India. The name Ludo came from England in 1896. Its first name (before it was called Ludo) was pachisi (in India). Ludo can be played with a minimum of two players and a maximum of four players.

Each player has 4 lives, and turn-by-turn, every player has to roll the dice once and move their pawn a number of spots ahead (depending on what number they got from the dice roll). Whoever gets all four of their pawns around the board first is the winner.
