NEW: Multiplayer Online with Facebook Friends available now.
Calling all the kings of Ludo game, here is your most popular & most loved Ludo game in its classical form. How often you all wondered if we have a Ludo game in the wooden board? The board that we used to play when we were kids. The very smell of the wood, the sketching of colors, the die (dice) and tokens that will take us back to our childhood days.
I kept this very experience as my goal when I designed the game for you all to cherish those childhood moments. So, get ready and travel back to old days and rule the Ludo kingdom.
Ludo is a strategy board game for 2 to 4 players and is being widely played in India, Nepal, Algeria and many Asian, Latin, European countries. It is also called as Parchisi, Parcheesi, and Laadhuu. The goal is simple, each player has to race their four tokens from start to finish (home) according to rolls of a single die or dice.
You got classic wood and neo-Ludo boards (paper & white). The wood board, die & tokens are a timeless design. It gives you a better visual experience and nostalgic feelings. The sketch marks and crystal clear tokens will make us feel the same old classic ludo board.
The board is the square shape with 3 columns of squares and supports up to 4 players (2, 3 & 4 players in combination with Computer). Each player will take one color from bright yellow, green, red and blue. You can also assign all players as Computer and quietly watch each, it is quite a lot fun. :)
I built an entirely new physics engine for die-rolling mechanics that will simulate the real-time rolling of a die or dice. The physics behind die-rolling was very challenging and I am proud to be the first one to implement. This will make it look like a 3D Ludo game.
It has an extensive set of game settings. You can play a match in 100s of variations to favor your own country rules. Some of them include,
Star Squares (safer)
Barrier Squares (Squares that will stop opponents to pass by)
Home Squares (Entering without returning opponent tokens)
Magic No (Die result that makes a staged token to enter its starting square)
Token Moving & Die Rolling Speed
Options to play with one or more Computer or Players or combination. You can also choose the intelligence of Computer (Trained, Expert and Strategic) to increase the complexity level.
Play with your friends, family or a random player across the world by logging into Game Center / Facebook or as anonymous. You have options to invite your friends or join a match hosted by your facebook and Game Center friends. You can see your total wins & your rank in Global Leaderboards. There are several achievements to unlock in the kingdom of Ludo.
You can also emote your tokens, and message with your opponents while playing the match.
The AI behind the game is built, by keeping-in-mind that the outcome of dice is always random and unpredictable whether it is thrown by player or Computer. Computer's intelligence is only to decide which tokens to choose from and to return the opponent's tokens from its squares or not. It doesn't have any control over the outcome/result of the die or dice.

The game is designed very well you enjoy while playing, but the only glitch is that when you play offline and after the game is over and you exit, when you play after sometime and you press start the game doesn’t start with new game it repeat the last coin of the last game played

Hi Bittu, thanks, you got it as you expected. Have a nice time with the game there. If you have any suggestions or ideas, don't hesitate to drop me a note.
When we play offline, the dice colour doesn’t change accordingly and it is stuck on red colour. Please fix it
