Cross
and Circle Dice Game
 

Other Names – Pagade, Pachisi, Chaupar, Aksha KreedaDayakattamChokkattan 

Perhaps
no other game is played in so many different variations all over India as 
Chaupad. The variations often have slight differences in the board itself,
the type of pieces used or the rules and methodology. One of a family of cross
and circle games, 
Chaupad is believed by many to be among the oldest
games from India. Legend has it that Emperor Akbar played it on giant boards
with women from his harem moving instead of game pieces. This game is believed
to be the source for the popular game – Ludo.
 

The game is traditionally played with long dice (made of brass or other metals) and cowrie shells as throw piecesKreeda has
included both long dice and shells as throw pieces. 
To protect our biodiversity, we have discontinued the
use of cowrie shells and we 
have designed special shell shaped game pieces handcrafted from wood.
The long dice are also handcrafted from wood to avoid injuries to children
while playing.
