  • 4 tokens start at the base and can only be moved out if the player rolls a six.
  • A token can move the same number of steps as the number on the dice after being rolled. You can choose any token on the field to move.
  • If a player rolls a six, they can roll again. But if a player rolls six 3 times in a row, their third roll will be skipped.
  • A player can kick the token of another player back to the base by stopping one of their tokens at the same grid as one of yours. If they do, they will gain one more roll.

2. Ludo Game Download For PC - Winning Strategies

While Ludo seems to be a game that purely based on luck, it does require you to make the right decision to get the most out of what you have. Especially when there are 4 players, the game can be fairly complicated and competitive.

These are things you need to know to make the best moves when playing Ludo King for PC.

  • Always keeps your tokens 7 grids ahead of other players' tokens or in the safe zone. Since the max number on a dice is 6, it is less likely that your opponent will be able to take out your token.
  • Always goes for a kill and send other players' tokens back to the base since you will have another roll if you do. Sending your opponent's tokens back to their base will give them a massive disadvantage and help you win the game.
  • Make the right priority such as get your tokens out to the field immediately when you get a six. Also, if your opponent is chasing behind one of your tokens, it is better to move that token to get far ahead than moving other tokens.
  • Wait in the safe zone until your opponent's tokens go past you. By doing this, you can pressure back to your opponent while keeping your tokens safe.
  • Use diamonds to re-roll. In Ludo King for PC, you can use diamonds to reroll your dice if you don't like the result. But diamonds can only be bought by real money through the store. Beware of scam sites that promise to give you diamonds for free. Not only Ludo King but other games also have scam sites like this as well.
