    And, how about 'Mench'? Has anyone ever heard this word for the game? This is the word used in Persian (a German word?).
    Thanks.

    Yes – that's Ludo.

    'In Germany, this game is called "Mensch ärgere dich nicht" which means "Man, don't get irritated", and has equivalent names in Dutch, Serbo-Croatian, Bulgarian, Czech and Slovak'(Wikipedia), but I expect most people shorten it to 'Mensch'.

    If that's a page rule, sure dear Rover_KE. I thought I'd better put it as a separate post because it seemed to be another question. Thanks for the help.
