Game Rules for Ludo
2 to 4 players can play this game. Each player will be given 4 tokens.
Starting The Game: -
To activate any token, the player has to roll the dice and get a 6. A player must throw a 6 to move any token from the "Base onto the "Start Position" on the board. Further, that token can be moved as per the upcoming dice number.
- With each throw, the player decides which token to move. A token simply moves in a clockwise direction around the track, depending on the number projected on the dice.
- If no token can legally move according to the number thrown, the turn passes to the next player.
- A throw of 6 gives a bonus turn to the player.
- Each player is provided with 30 seconds to roll the dice and make the move. In case of no response, the player misses the turn.
- After missing 3 turns a player cannot play the game further and will be confirmed as dismissed.
Killing A Player: -
- Whenever a player lands on any block where an opponent's token is present, in that case, the token to arrive later will kill the previously present token/tokens sending him/them to the "Base". Also, the player whose token has killed the opponent player's token will get a bonus turn to roll the dice.
- There will be multiple "Secured Spot" in the game residing on which player's token will be safe and cannot be killed. Even the "Start Position" is the "Secured Spot".
Winning A Game: -
Track on the board has 55 blocks between "Start Position" & Home Triangle". When a token has circumnavigated the board, it proceeds up to the "Home". A token can only be moved onto the "Home Triangle" by an exact throw of the required number.
The first person to move all 4 tokens into the "Home Triangle" wins.
In case of a tie, prize money will be equally distributed.
Bonus Rolls: -
Following are the scenarios when a player will get a bonus roll: -
