The earliest evidence of this game evolution in India is the depiction of boards on the caves of Ellora. The contemporary version was played by the Mughal emperors of India; a notable example is Akbar. Pachisi (ancient name of Ludo) was modified to use a cubic die with a dice cup and patented as “Ludo” in England in 1896. The Royal Navy took Ludo and converted it into the board game Uckers.
