There are several games that are perfect for all ages and skill levels. There is uno. There is scrabble. There is also the carrom. But if there is one game that has been immensely popular with people of all ages and skill levels, it is ludo.
Ludo, which is said to have originated in India during the 6th century AD, became popular across the world after the British, in the 19th century, modified it into the standard version which we play today. The game was introduced to England in 1896 and from there on, it spread to most parts of the world. Ludo’s popularity is largely attributed to the fact that it can be played by people of all ages and skill levels. Like chess or like the pool, you don’t have to learn ludo to be able to play it.
Here’s why we think ludo is the perfect game for people of all ages and skill levels:
Not complicated to play
The game is simple. The board game is divided into four squares of different colours or starting points. In the centre of the board you will find the winning point, also called ‘home’. Each of the four players is given four pieces, and a common dice is shared between all the players. The objective of the game is to move all of your pieces from their starting position to the center of the board. The first player to get all the four pieces to the centre of the board wins the game. There are several Ludo rules, but they are simple to understand, which makes the game popular for all ages and skills.
Short game time
Another reason why ludo is popular among people of all ages Ludo is its short game time. A single game of ludo between four players would not take more than 20 minutes to finish. This is great for both the working adults and the young students, who do not have a lot of time on their hands for game breaks.
Helps improve focus
Building a better focus is important for people of all ages. Ludo, though simple to understand and play, requires strategic thinking, which helps boost the player’s focus level. Players need to decide which piece to move on the board and when, and how to kill the opponent’s piece with smart moves. All of this enhances concentration and the ability to think wisely.
The traditional ludo cash game, which is a board game, is used by children who do not have access to the phone. The adults, meanwhile, can play the game on their mobile phones or computers. You can either play against the mobile itself, or invite your friends to join you in the game using a code. The availability of the game on various platforms makes it popular and a go-to choice among people of all ages.
Easy to carry
The game of ludo is portable and very easy to carry because of its light weight. This makes it one of the most sought after games on train journeys, trips and night stays. It is a fun way to bond with family and friends.
