Here are a few Ludo King tips that you can implement from your next game. These tips will help you climb up the stairs of Ludo greatness.

1) The Rule of 7

As a rule of thumb, you should always think ahead of your opponents. '7 Steps' in particular. 

No one likes to have an opponent's token land on them as soon as they move on the board. If an opponent's token does land on you, you have to move all the way back into your home base and beat the odds to a six on the dice in order to move out again.

The safest place to be on the board is seven steps ahead of your opponent. Why? The highest roll on the dice is six, that ensures the best chance of your survival, unless your opponent gets too lucky and gets to roll his/her dice again.

2) Play the waiting game

If your tokens are placed on a safe zone (star-shapes on the board) and you do not have a good dice roll, meaning, you have a chance of exposing yourself to your opponents, avoid doing that.

It's safer to wait them out than to get sent back to your base and having to do it all over again.

3) Understand the rolling rules

There are three situations where you can roll the dice immediately after your previous roll:

- You scored a six on the dice.

- You've just sent an opponent's token back to their home base.

- You've brought a token to the last square towards the center of the board.

Understanding these rules can put you in an advantageous position when you have an opportunity to roll the dice a second time around. Use it with caution and strategic thinking.

Here are a few other Ludo King tips/pointers to keep in mind while playing the game.

  • Try and arrange your pieces in a way where two tokens keep moving ahead towards the center, while the other two act as cover against your opponents
  • Cautiously, try sending your opponent's piece back to their home base since this may increase your chances of winning dramatically.
  • Do not make spontaneous decisions, take a few seconds to think of more than one possible move, and then choose the best of them all.
