Design and Implementation of a Computerized Game

Introduction

Ludo (latin word “ludus” -“I play”) is a board game for two to four players, in which the players race their four tokens from start to finish according to die rolls. Like other cross and circle games, Ludo is derived from the Indian game Pachisi, but simpler. The game and its variants are popular in many countries and under various names.

Pachisi originated in India in the 6th century. The earliest evidence of this game in India is the depiction of boards on the caves of Ajanta. This game was played by the Mughal emperors of India; a notable example is the great Mughal emperor Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar, who used to play live Pachisi by using his harem girls.

In England, the game was published as early as 11th April 1862 (19th century). Pachisi was modified, using six-sided dice, and patented as Ludo, in 1896, patent number 14636.

Ludo is a game well known to most people, particularly those of advancing years. A simple game played by up to four players on a colorful board. But once the Royal Navy got hold of the game, it changed not only its name but also the way the game was played.
