An excellent supplemental activity for any Ancient India History Unit, this is Pachisi, the board game of Ancient India. We have designed a game board similar to that used in India today (often using fabric and embroidery) and have included rules for playing and suggestions for how to create the pawns and dice needed.
We have created a beautiful board for color printing and an equally lovely designed board for black and white printing. Great for a traditional classroom exercise or homeschooling with a classical history program. You can see more images of this board here:
