What is Pachisi?
The Traditional Pachisi is a simple cross and circle game played on a cross-shaped board between two teams of two partners while the more modernized gameplay is a free-for-all race to the finish! The name derives from the Hindi word – pachis, meaning twenty-five – the largest score that can be thrown in one turn. The game itself has sustained and evolved for over 1700 years, so there are many interpretations of the rules, we simply mention the two most popular versions for you to play.
