It exceeded my expectations, after going out on a limb never knowing about the game before. I saw it as a potential showpiece, and it definitely fits the bill.The ludo is a super easy and super affordable game, not necessarily needing the costly equipment. All you need is the following to play ludo; Mensch ärgere dich nicht (Man, Don't Get Angry), is a German game from 1914 and has equivalent names in Albanian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Greek, Italian, Macedonian, Polish, Romanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, and Turkish. Special areas of the Ludo board are typically coloured bright yellow, green, red, and blue. Each player is assigned a colour and has four tokens [c] in their colour. The board is normally square with a cross-shaped playspace, with each arm of the cross having three columns of squares, usually six per column. The middle columns usually have five squares coloured; these represent a player's home column. A sixth coloured square not on the home column is a player's starting square. At the centre of the board is a large finishing square, often composed of coloured triangles atop the players' home columns (thus depicting "arrows" pointing to the finish).
Ludo King has the same rules as that of the traditional Ludo game. The dice numbers and strategy have equal importance and winning depends upon smart moves of the tokens you make while moving towards the home. Save your tokens from getting captured and race ahead of all opponents to become the Ludo King! How to Play Ludo RulesThe first player to get all their counters to their home triangle wins the game. You cannot win if one of your opponents still has all their counters in their box. Doubled pieces may move half the number if an even number is thrown (e.g. move two spaces if a 4 is thrown).
In Vietnam, it is called "Cờ cá ngựa", where the game is modeled after a horse race with the tokens modeled as horse heads. In this variation, a 1 is given equal status to a 6 (meaning that the player can enter a token into play and can roll again). Furthermore, once a player's token reaches their home column, it can only go up each square with an exact roll. This means that a person outside the column must roll a 1 to enter the first square, a 2 afterwards to enter the second, and so forth.Ludo is played between two to four players. Each player must choose one of the four available colors to play.
