Rules of the Game
In the starting, each player is given four tokens of same color to play with. The aim is to move all the tokens to home, first player accomplishing the task will be crowned as the winner! The houses are right in the middle of the board. Once a player wins, the game ends with rest of players getting consolation spots.
Players rolls a dice to move their tokens from base to home. In order to bring out the token from base, you need to hit a Six on the dice. Moreover, rolling out a six provides you another turn. Make sure to make the best out of that extra turn. But don’t forget, rolling three consecutive Sixes will cancel your turn.
You can even capture your opponents token. If you land on the same tile where the opponent was already present, you will send that token back to the start (base). If you want to keep your token safe, try to reach those 8 safe tiles on board.
Ludo King tips & tricks to win
The gameplay is simple yet full of fun. If you want to win almost every game, you need some tricks and tips. This will increase your chances of winning. More or less, you even require some luck!
Try Moving Tokens Out of Base
One of the effective tip for Ludo King is to move out your tokens from the base. Whenever you hit a six, just use it to withdraw a soldier from the base. It will also let you have another chance to roll. Some players do focus on a couple of tokens and rush to bring them home. That is not the right strategy as other players might kill them on the way.
In many situations, you won’t have any token to move as the left ones are not yet activated. This will also reduce your choices to use the dice numbers. So, it’s always better to keep moving with all of your soldiers out and ready. Who knows you might not hit a six for a long time.
No Sympathy for Enemies
Whenever you roll the dice, always pay attention to killing the enemy tokens. To increase the probability of killing, make sure you have all your tokens in the field. Whenever you roll the right number, always go for killing the enemies. This will not only give you another roll, but the opponent will have to start all over again. This reduces the risk of your opponent reaching home before you.
Many a times, players try to group up their tokens. But I would suggest you to spread your soldiers on the board. This would distract the focus of your opponents as they have to keep a check at multiple locations. It is risky to put all the tokens in one area. Moreover this gives you more chances of killing the enemies token.
Claim Daily Rewards
Many players neglect to collect free coins in Ludo King. They don’t claim daily rewards which are free of cost. Then eventually when they run out of coins, they have to buy it with real cash. Coins help you to play online games and be connected with your friends. So, always make sure to collect the rewards whenever you log in the game.
