Pachisi 5

To PLAY -If a player’s piece lands on a space already occupied by an opponent’s piece, the opponent’s piece is captured and sent back to its home base, where it can only re-enter the board when a 6 is thrown on the die.

Once a piece has entered the last five spaces before its home space, it is safe from capture by an opponent’s pieces.

A piece may be moved into the home space only when the exact number needed is thrown on the die. The game is over when one player has all four of her pieces moved into her home space.


The Ludo playing board is assembled in the same way as the Pachisi board. After copying, mounting, and cutting out the four separate pieces of the board, connect all four through their centers with a paper fastener or a tack.
