Ludo King rules

These are the basic rules to play Ludo King:

  • It is played between 2 to 6 players, with every player having 4 tokens. The player who manages to get all of his four tokens home (reaches the centre of the board) first is declared the winner. The game goes on until all the places are decided.
  • A token can only move out from the base and start to move after a six is rolled by that player.
  • Once a six is rolled out, that player gets one more turn to roll the dice.
  • When a player rolls six three times in a row, it skips their turn.
  • If a token crosses the finish line, the player gets to roll another dice.
  • If a token captures another token, the capturing player gets to roll another dice.
  • The board has a total of eight safe squares which are coloured squares and starred squares.
  • The tokens need to exit every player's base and move around the board to win.
