Ludo Multiplayer is a strategy board game for two to four players, in which the players race their four tokens from start to finish according to the rolls of a single die. Like other cross and circle games, Ludo Multiplayer is derived from the Indian game Pachisi, but simpler. The game and its variations are popular in many countries and under various names.
Each player rolls the die; the highest roller begins the game. Players alternate turns in a clockwise direction. To enter a token into play from its yard to its starting square, a player must roll a 6. The player has to draw a token from home every time he gets a 6 unless home is empty or the start box has 2 own tokens (is doubled). If the player has no tokens yet in play and rolls other than a 6, the turn passes to the next player. Players must always move a token according to the die value rolled in the game.
Two, three, or four can play, without partnerships. At the beginning of the game, each player’s four tokens are out of play and staged in the player’s yard (one of the large corner areas of the board in the player’s colour). When able to, the players will enter their tokens one per turn on their respective starting squares, and proceed to race them clockwise around the board along the game track (the path of squares not part of any player’s home column).
When reaching the square below his home column, a player continues by moving tokens up the column to the finishing square. The rolls of a single die control the swiftness of the tokens, and entry to the finishing square requires a precise roll from the player. The first to bring all their tokens to the finish wins the game. The others often continue to play to determine second-, third-, and fourth-place finishers.
