Although the date of its creation is uncertain, it is believed to have been played for over a millennium, having been primarily the entertainment of emperors. It is at the origin of the western versions Ludo (United Kingdom) and Parcheesi (United States of America). The Pachisi board is cruciform and traditionally made of fabric; the pieces can be of various materials, namely ivory. Small cowries were often used as dice. It is valued as a game that stimulates the ability to reason, discern and consider.
