Ludo, meaning 'Play' in Latin is a Victorian version of the ancient Indian game of Chaupur or Pachisi. The word Ludo is Latin for 'play' and it's a straightforward race game with the objective being to be the first to get all 4 of your pieces to the home area in the middle. Ludo pieces first have to make a circuit of the board and therein lies the fun as they can jump on other pieces en-route and send them back to the beginning. Ludo does therefore have a limited element of skill in deciding which piece to move each time.
Jaques were one of the first companies to produce a version of Ludo in Victorian times and Jaques Ludo is reproduced from Jaques' original hand drawn design dating back to 1895. Each set has a solid Mahogany frame, four sets of full colour wooden playing discs, dice and a soft natural carry bag.
Contains small parts. Not suitable for children under 3 years.
