Pachisi is the National Game of India. Although many western imitations of the game exist such as Ludo from England and the American Parcheesi, nothing compares with the original. Pachisi and the older and more complicated Chaupur (which can also be played with this cloth version of the board game) are games of skill - suitable for both adults and children.
Masters Traditional Games are pleased to bring you a version of this fascinating game in the authentic Indian style - with a cloth Pachisi board and beehive shaped pieces. The Pachisi game is easily transportable and can be unfurled to play anywhere you wish. You can choose to play with either of two forms of ancient dice - 2 long dice or 6 cowrie shells - both included with the game.
The cloth is approx 80 x 80cm. The game comes in simple cardboard box. The pieces are basic painted wooden pieces in the traditional dome shape. This product contains small parts that represent a choking hazard for small children. Not suitable for children under 5 years old.
Note - we have been supplied with 3 different versions of the Pachisi
board (black and purple, orange and purple, orange and black). Click on
