Parcheesi is a simple and classic family board game. The game in its original form, Pachisi, comes from India and dates all the way back to 4 AD!
Each player has a set of pawns that begin in the corners of the board. The goal is to move the pawns around the board to the "home" section, using dice to determine movement. All players move their pawns around the same board and so may capture each others pawns as they move. Captured pawns return back to their respective player's corner and have to start their journey over again. The winner is the first player to move all of their pawns to the "home" section.
The Parcheesi Royal Edition brings back a cherished look and feel of Parcheesi, including fun cylindrical dice cups.
The game is for 2-4 players, ages 8+
Contents include: Game board, 16 plastic pawns (4 sets of 4 colors), 4 individual dice cups, 8 dice (4 sets) and instructions.
