Chaupar or Pachisi is a race game that gained popularity in the West as Ludo and in the USA as 'Parcheesi - the Royal game of India'. Great kings like Akbar and Mummadi Krishnaraja Wadeyar were connoisseurs of this game, and there are probable references to this game in the epic of Mahabharata too. While Akbar had a life-size game etched in his courtyard in Fatehpur Sikri, Mummadi Wadeyar modified the 4-handed game to 8 and 12-handed games with spiritual implications.
