What could be more of a classic than the board game 'Ludo', whose Latin root name, Ludus, literally means 'Game'? Developed in Britain in 1896, it remains popular worldwide, particularly on the palm spotted banks of the Caribbean and the frozen Swedish tundra, both places where the climate demands serious attention to leisure and game play.
A simplified version of the traditional Pachisi, this is an extremely fun strategy game where decision making is key to clinching a win. A great game for two to four players - the game advances as the players move their four pegs from the start to finish according to dice rolls, racing to get all pieces exactly in the home column of their color. Several fun variations exist worldwide that add regional flavor to this Game of all Games.
