You simply must play Ludo – it’s classic beauty in a classic board game from Jaques. Games come in a range of styles to suit every budget. Yet, all boards are handcrafted from the finest materials available and feature the original Ludo design first produced by Jaques over a century ago. With our Ludo range we have Ludo boards both in linen and in wood, made from the finest Mahogany.
Ludo is Latin for "play" and is also known as Parcheesi in America. Originating in India in the 6th century as ‘Pachisi’, the game features four beautifully coloured sections (or players ‘yards’). It involves rolling a die to determine the starting colour, then the race begins to see who can reach the ‘finishing square’ first. There is one thing all versions of the game have…tons of fun for participants of all ages!
You have several different choices for Ludo boards from our Jaques collection. They include a 12” style, more lightweight for travelling; our lovely 17” Mahogany version, matched in beauty and ‘upped’ in size by our handsome 23” model; and, for those of us who like to enjoy games in the park, Jaques makes two waterproof canvas mat styles that are easy to carry about, have wind-resisting lawn stakes and liven up any outdoor party. Get a set for a quick party anywhere, or give one as a laugh-making present.
