    Hi all,
    Is 'Ludo' the exact name for this game?

    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.
