Indian Board Games

Chaduranga :: Panchi :: Pachisi :: Snakes & Ladders :: Navakankari

All Indian Board Games that went global - morphing into Ludo, Monolpoly, Patchisi & Nine Men's Morris!

In the 19th century the Americans and British adapted them and sold them in their markets and even copyrighted them! A variation of the Indian games was introduced commercially into the United States in the 1860’s by a certain John Hamilton, living in the Hudson River Valley. He first marketed his adaptation under the name “Patcheesi” and filed a claim for a copyright in 1867!!

Here's an account of some of the games and its history from The Penn Museum

We are happy to re-introduce these games- with a combination of rich Indian textiles (the game boards) and wood crafts
