How to Play
Roll the dice and try to move your pieces across the board before competitors do.
Roll the dice.
Move one of your pieces the number shown on the face of the die.
If you have multiple pieces on the board you can only move one of them.
If you do not have a piece which is able to move the displayed number of moves then you are skipped and the next player gets to roll the dice.
Rolling a 6
If you roll a six you get to movie a piece six spaces and roll again.
You must roll a six to move pieces out of the starting area and onto the board.
If you land on an enemy piece they have to start that piece from the beginning of the game.
If an enemy lands on your piece then you have to set that piece at the beginning of the board.
This game can have 2 to 4 concurrent players.
You can select which color you want to play and make any of the competing players be computer or human.
If you select human then those are other players sharing your computer with you.
If a player is in the lead it makes sense to try to knock their pieces off the board.
If a player still has pieces that have yet to enter the board it can make sense to leave your pieces just before their entry point and work on your other pieces until you have a high roll like a 6 that moves your piece well past their entry to the board.
The game ends when one of the players gets all 4 of their pieces home.
In western culture the board game this software emulates is known as is called Sorry!.
Sorry was originally trademarked and patented by William Henry Story on May 21, 1929 and August 4, 1930 respectively.
The game was later sold by Waddingtons and Parker Brothers .
Hasbro currently manufactures the Sorry board game and recommends it for players 6 and up.
The origins of this game date back to an ancient Indian cross game named Pachisi, which dates back to medieval times. The game was described in the ancient text Mahabharata.

Up to four players can play this version of the classic board game. Your goal is to bring all four of your pieces across the board and back to home base. Movement is decided by a roll of the die. In most cases, you can only roll a single piece per turn. You must roll a six to get a piece into play. Each time you roll a six, you can roll again and put a piece in play. If two pieces occupy the same slot, the active player knocks out the opponent’s piece. If all your pieces get knocked out, you must wait until you roll a six to return to the game.
Things are slow when one of your pieces is in home base. You can only move forward if you receive the appropriate number of turns from the die. You may spend several turns stuck within arm’s reach of home base. The suspense will mount once at least two players are neck and neck.
Sometimes, simple is good. This game is an excellent option if you want to play a classic board game with friends. You can set all your opponents to “human” and take turns. Be sure to lower your volume; the end-game buzzer is loud.
Like most board games, a player wins the Ludo game when they finish first. But here, instead of one counter, each player gets four counters in their respective color. As a rule, a player’s counter can only enter the board when they roll the dice and get a six. You also get to roll again if you get a six. The counter must finish one round across the board. When a player has all four counters reach their final position, they win.
Of course, this game has its share of obstacles. In competing, opponents can take your place. Once they get your position, your counter is automatically removed from the board. You can only put back the counter if you roll a six. This game gets more exciting when players start overtaking each other. It prolongs the game, but makes you more determined to win. As much as possible, try to play far away from other opponents. This way, you can avoid being removed from the board.
