Ludo 2018 or Uckers 2018 (from Latin ludo, “i play”) is a strategy board game for two to four[a] players, in which the players race their four tokens from start to finish according to the rolls of a single die. Like other cross and circle games, Ludo is derived from the Indian game Pachisi, but simpler. The game and its variations are popular in many countries and under various names.
In England, Pachisi was modified to use a cubic die with dice cup and patented as “Ludo” in 1896, patent number 14636. The Royal Navy took Ludo and converted it into the board game Uckers.
Derived from the word pachisi :
* In North America, the game is sold under the brand name Parcheesi. Variations of the game are sold under the brand names Sorry!, Aggravation, and Trouble.
* In Spain, it is called Parchis in Spanish and Parxis in Catalan.
* In Colombia, it is called Parques.
