Ludo- classic board game that traces its history back to the time of the Pandavas (remember Shakuni & his Shadyantras!). The board game was then known as Chaupar, infamous for the tussle between the Pandavas & Kauravas!
Ludo is one board game that is found in every Indian household. If there's one board game that brings the entire family together for a round of fun and laughter, it is the game of Ludo. Well, it is also that game where if you start losing, the best rule (escape, really!) is to turn over the ludo board and run away!
A single round of ludo board game is such fun. Now, imagine a round of ludo board game with 6 players! In the words of Shilpa Shetty we'd say, "Superrr se bhi uparrrrr!!".
This super fun Ludo board game comes at a really affordable cost and is best for that family of six, or the gang where two players were always left out of the game. Well now, you no longer have to just be a fun witness; you be the Ludo King or Queen! ;-)
What more, this board game also comes with the classic ludo twin, the snakes and ladders board game. Now, now, this is such an added bonus, right? Be the Snake expert too. Have the best of both worlds, with an extra layer of fun!
