2 Dice Ludo
The 2-Dice Ludo is an advanced version of the classic ludo game. In 2 dice ludo, two dice are used, but these dice are not rolled simultaneously or affect pawn moves. The rules for this game slightly differ from a classic ludo game. This post will discuss everything about the 2-Dice ludo game.
What Is 2 Dice Ludo?
As the name suggests, the 2-Dice Ludo game uses two dice where one indicates the participants’ current move (first turn), and the second one displays the participants’ next move (second turn). It means that only one die is rolled, and the other one shows the number after rolling.
The participants have moved their pawns according to the number displayed on the die indicating their first or current move. Also, the numbers on your pawn’s head represent how many pawns are on the same block.
How Is 2 Dice Ludo Different From Classic Ludo?
The 2-Dice Ludo differs from classic ludo in terms of its rules, playing technique, and, most specifically, the use of two dice.
In Two Dice Ludo, you can win the game in two ways, unlike the classic ludo game. You can kill your opponent three times or bring all your pawns home to win the game.
The 2-Dice Ludo game begins with two pawns of each player outside the starting position, which differs from classic ludo.
Unlike classic ludo, only colored blocks are safe zones here, and no extra move is given if a six is rolled.
The opponents can see each other’s current and next move as the dices are visible.
What Are The Rules Of 2 Dice Ludo?
Here are some rules, participants need to follow to play the 2-Dice Ludo game.
- On the board, each player has four pawns. A player can win the game in one of two ways:
- by leading all four of a player’s pawns to the home base before all opponents.
- by killing the opponent’s pawns three times throughout a game.
- When the game begins, the pawns of each player are set as follows:
- One pawn starts at the beginning location.
- Two pawns start one square away from the starting position. One pawn is four squares away from the starting location.
- Each participant can access two standard dice with numbers 1 to 6.
- The number on the first die shows how many locations on the board a player’s pawns can move in the current turn. The number on the second die determines how many sites on the board a player’s pawns can move in the following turn.
- Rolling a 6 on the dice allows the player to move a pawn one square outside the starting location. When leaving the starting location, the pawn can only move one square.
- When a pawn lands on any colored squares in the home pathway, it is immediately directed home. Therefore, the players are not required to roll the number of squares on the dice to reach home.
- At all times, all players may see both dice of their opponents.
- A 6 on the dice does not provide a player with an extra turn. A player can get an additional turn by killing an opponent’s pawn.
- A player can eliminate an opponent’s pawn by placing a pawn on the same square as the opponent’s piece.
- A pawn that is killed will respawn at the beginning. The respawned pawn can only leave the starting place if the player’s dice show on 6.
- Certain squares on the board have been designated as safe zones. When a pawn is in a safe zone, it cannot be killed. All squares marked with a star on the board are safe zones. Four squares on the board are designated as safe zones.
- When two or more pawns from the same player are in the same square, players may create safe zones on any square on the board (including those not marked with stars).
- In a game, players can miss up to two turns. The player loses the game after failing to complete the third turn of gaming during the game.
- Each player’s turn has a time restriction of 15 seconds. Depending on the number of participants, a player may have between 15 and 45 seconds until their next turn.
Top 2 Dice Ludo Tricks And Tips
Remove Every Token You Have
We know that one thing we cannot influence is how the 6s are rolled. Therefore, if you move a 6 (by pure luck), it should reveal all your cards. When one of your tokens hits the center triangle, you will not have to struggle to open them. One of the best Ludo playing tactics is this.
Never Race With One Token
Moving two tokens simultaneously is better than moving just one. Try to spread your tokens across the board equally. For example, it would give you a chance to win by assisting them with forming a block or capturing other competitors’ tokens.
It is all about a variant of the ludo game i.e. the super exciting 2-Dice ludo game. Though it is slightly different from classic ludo games, it is as simple as playing conventional Ludo. It only differs in its playing style and rules for playing.
