How To Play
Ludo’s rules are pretty easy to understand and play. At the starting of the game, every player has four tokens/pawns in their yard. The main goal of the Ludo game is to get all four pawns from the yard to the center of the board. These pawns are move according to the number get in dice rolling. The pawns are the move in the game’s tracks in the clockwise direction. Getting six on dice rolled gives extra chance to roll the dice.
For four players there are four different colors. In the Ludo board starting circle, starting square, central home, and all the home column squares are colored to match the corresponding pawns/tokens. Usually,
there are four color options, each player chooses one of them. Then each player places their tokens in the corresponding starting circle. For all players, a single die is thrown to determine the movement of tokens.
To determine the starting turn, every player throws the dice and highest throw of the die starts the game.
At every throw, the player can decide which token to move. The token moves in the clockwise direction through to track according to the number of rolled dice. The thro passes to the next player if you can not move the token legally according to the number of rolled dice. And getting six on roll gives another extra chance.
To move a token for the starting circle to the first square on the track, a player must get number six on the dice roll. After that token goes forward in square track corresponding to the number you get in dice roll. For example, if you get 4 in a roll, then you can move your token 4 steps forward in square track.
Each player should roll the rice in their turn (clockwise direction) and depending on a roll they can add a new token to the Ludo board or move the token in a forward direction.
If you land your token on the opponent’s token field then opponent’s token goes to the initial circular field and they will need to get a 6 again in dice roll to come back into the board. Landing your token on the opponent’s token field makes delay them to reach in their center home. Thus, if you land your token on opponent’s token filed then there will be a higher probability that you win the game.
Reaching your one or two tokens onto the center home field will not win the game. The player who gets all four tokens inside the center home field has won the game.
