During this shutdown, it is not only the coronavirus which is bothering us – many of us are also bored out of our wits from staying indoors. We are not used to having so much free time and do not know how to deal with it.
I mean, how long can you survive binging on Netflix series and having video chats with your friends, right? As a result, whatever is coming in handy to kill the boredom, we are jumping right into it. Be it cooking, engaging in DIY projects or playing games.
To help us remain active and not slouched on the bed all day, the old family board game ludo, renamed to "Ludo Star", has reappeared into our lives. You are not really a Bengali if you have never played a game of ludo or carrom with your family or friends! And now, thanks to the internet, you can play it online with your friends with whom you may have drifted apart because of the shutdown.
People from all over the world, especially from the sub-continent are getting more and more engaged with this game because of their familiarity with its rules.
The online version of ludo includes four different types of modes with various interesting features. You can play with participants selected randomly by the game itself, or you can create a private game to have a fun match with your friends. You can choose whichever suits you best!
It also has chat options within the game, which allows you to converse with your teammates or the opponents. You can also cheer for your teammates and tease the opponents just like you would do in the real-life version.
