4 player: As the name suggests, you are paired up 3 more players to play against – however in this mode, you won’t be assigned any partner/team member but that doesn’t mean you can still pair up in game. Why make enemies, when you can make friends?
Variations of Ludo Star
As mentioned earlier, Ludo star is based on the ludo board game hence majority rules are same with few different rules depending on the variation you pick.
In this mode, the rules seem to be much harder than other variations In order to get your token out of the box, you must get a six on the dice which shouldn’t be hard HOWEVER. it’s mandatory to eliminate the rival at least once so that your token can move inside home.
In this variation, rules are same as the original board game. One has to secure six on the dice to get each token of the box, however in this variation you can move your token inside home, without having to kill the opponent’s token. All the four tickets are required to be brought home in an attempt to secure the victory. Definitely, you have to do all this before your opponent.
This mode is great for those who want to play a quick ludo game. In the quick mode of ludo star, one does not have to score 6 to be able to bring the token out as you start the game with one token out already. The first person to score a single token wins this game.
