Sorry - this product is suspended. The craftsman who used to make it has retired and we have not yet found a replacement. Hopefully we will resurrect the product in the future but it might be years before this happens, regrettably.
It's been a long time in the planning but worth the wait. Masters Traditional Games is proud to make available these unique, extremely high quality boards in two styles. Hand-made to our own commission by an experienced Marquetry craftshop - you won't find the elegant boards on this page anywhere else.
For the games enthusiast or any lover of fine wooden objects, the first board is faced entirely with natural wood. The pieces and inlays on the board are from four carefully chosen contrasting woods to distinguish the players on the board. But, it doesn't stop there - together with the backdrop, squares and other board features, there are a total of 9 different woods including Ebony, Yew, Oak and Walnut combining to make a game that is fit for a King.
Ludo is, in fact, the modern classic children's version of the ancient Indian game Pachisi. But, just because Ludo is designed for children doesn't mean that they should have to put up with horrible plastic pieces on a thin card board!
Our other board is made in colourful pastel shades of dyed inlaid wood. It is a beautiful hand-made wooden game with bright pieces that will appeal to youngsters. Guaranteed to be passed down the family for generations to come....
Board dimensions are 36 cm (14 inches) square, rules, 16 disks and 2 dice are included. Note that this game does not come with a storage box. However, we can provide a special hand-made Oak storage box into which the board slots. See our Uckers page for a picture of how this works. This product contains small parts that represent a choking hazard for small children. Not suitable for children under 5 years old.
Spare set of 16 colourful disks for Ludo (19mm diam.)
Both styles of game board were designed from the outset to meet the requirements of Uckers, the grown-up version of Ludo that is popular throughout the Royal Navy and with other military personnel around the world. The pieces are stackable and the box is nice and sturdy. The craftsman used waterproof glue and varnish in the construction of the boards and 2 dice and Uckers rules are included.
