There are many downloadable versions of the classic board game, Ludo, many of which add gimmicks and themes to jazz it up. With
, however, you get to keep the traditional game board, and the traditional rules (although these can be configured to suit your style).
Players have a choice to play against random opponents or online friends, but each has a downside. You are only allowed to play with your Facebook friends, so unless you have a Facebook account, you can only play against random opponents.
When you play against random opponents, there are a few problems I have encountered. First is the amount of time you have to wait for a game to become available, and second is what happens once you enter that game. Every time I have played, I have always been drafted into a game that is already in progress. Instead of everyone starting from home, many the pieces are already halfway round the board - including my own.
The only conclusion I can come to is that I am replacing a player who has previously forfeited by not having their turn within the allotted time. Despite having an over-generous ninety seconds to roll the die and make your move, players frequently forfeit.
More often than not, I have found myself winning, not because I got all my pieces home, but because all the other players have left. Admittedly, the creators cannot be held responsible for this, but I found it far more frequently occurring here than in any other version. Perhaps that is because players are more dissatisfied with ; I don't know.
I think the graphics and the general concept are both good, but when put into practice, the game just doesn't live up to expectations.
