Generations have played Lud and have evolved over the years. The Indians first created the game in the 6th Century.

Chaupar is a modern version of Chaupar that was played using shells found in the sea. The number of shots with the top visible side is how many moves your pieces get. After this, Pachisi’s rules were modified so that they could be played with a cube die and dice cup. In 1896, the royal navy converted Ludo into a board game Uckers.

The typical ludo game board is brightly colored red, yellow, green, and blue. Every player has four tokens. The goal is to be the first player to get all four passes into your color home. While there are safe areas where you cannot be killed, you can kill the other players to advance faster.

Ludo, a game played by generations and has evolved, teaches many things from basic counting and motor skill in young children to handling multiple symbols and understanding permutations and combinations based on the dice number. Making fast decisions is necessary to progress. Watch for your enemies, as they can come in all directions. Luck is not always in your favor. Ludo is a game that appeals to every age group, as it has so many hidden lessons.

The same game can be played in many different ways around the world. You can take, for example
