Printerable Ludo game with die and counters

Ludo Instructions:

Each player gets rolls the die, the roller who gets 6 begins the game. The other players start rolling the die in a clockwise direction. To win the game a player must move all their counters to the finishing centre square first.

To enter a counter into play, a player must roll a 6. If the player does not roll a 6, the turn passes to the next player. Once a player has one or more counters in play, they can take any of their counters in play and move them forward. The number on the rolled die will determine the number of squares the chosen piece moves forward.

When a player rolls a 6, they may choose to move a counter already in play forward, or alternatively, they may enter another counter from its stationary starting position to its starting square. The rolling of a 6 earns the player an extra roll. If the extra roll results in a 6 again, the player earns another additional bonus roll. If the third roll is also a 6, the player may not move a counter, and the turn immediately passes to the next player.

If a player lands on a square they already occupy, the pair of counters form a block. Other players cannot pass or land on the block. If moving a counter forward means it ends on a square occupied by an opponent’s counter, the opponent’s counter is returned to its owner’s starting position. The returned counter may only be entered back into play when the owner rolls a 6 again.

Once a counter travels around the entire board and reaches its home column, it has to be moved towards the home. For this, a player has to roll the exact number the counter has to move in order to reach home. For example, if you roll a four, and your counter requires a move of only three squares, you have to move another counter or pass.
