Vaikuntapali, Moksha Patam,Parama Padam, snakes and chutes, snakes and ladders, Samp Sudi with whatever name we call it is a famous board game played all over the world. Vaikuntapali game is the Indian version of snakes and ladders. Most indoor games like Ludo, chess, carroms, Ashta Chamma, sholo guti, tiger vs goats, Beads Game ..etc have their origin in India. This shows our ancestors’ interest and passion for games and game designing, as we are playing those games till now and carrying them to our next generations also. Especially we have to talk about the Vaikuntapali(Mokshapatt) board game.

History of MokshaPatam:

In ancient India Snakes and ladders was called MokshaPatam in North India, Vaikuntapali Game(ParamaPadam) in South India Created by Saint (saint) Gyandev in the 13th century. This game is designed to teach moral lessons vices and virtues to the kids along with recreation. Here the Ladders signify the virtues i.e., good deeds and Snakes signify the vices i.e., bad and evil deeds.

Have a walk-through of Mokshapatam(Vaikuntapali Game):

Vaikuntapali is one of the games which resembles our Hindu culture and history. It has 131 squares. It is a multiplayer game played by rolling the dice. Rolling 6 numbered dice allows the player to enter the game and move forward according to the number on the dice. The chance of rolling dice is given one after the other.

I call it a Life game, everyone should go through the ups(ladders) and downs(snakes) of the game(i.e.,life) and who first reaches “131 square” wins the game.

We see lot of images in this game like Animals,temples,birds,Hindu Idols,peoples,saints ..etc which is the best way teach kids the morals to be fallowed in Hindu Culture and traditions.

We also see in the game there are so many snakes and ladders. By clearly observing the up and down images of ladders and snakes we understand the main idea of the Vaikuntapali game. For example we see Bhakti(Devotion) and Brahma Lokam(i.e., through bhakti you reach Brahma Lokam),similarly Chittasuddi(Concentration) and Mahalokam(i.e., through Concentration  you become Mahanubhava), Yagnam and Swargam(i.e., through Yagnam you reach Swargam) at top and bottom of the ladders respectively. Similarly, for Snakes we see Karkotakudu and Pig(i.e.,Karkotaka is a demon , if you have this behavior you will born as pig in the next karma), Duryodhana and arrows,…etc at the head and tail of the snakes images.

We also see a big Snake called “Arukasura”(Who has malicious behaviour) which teaches us even if we reach high stages of life, by doing a single mistake we reach the starting point of the life game(reaches monkey again).Here I recommend Life changing Lessons for people to learn in their daily life  a wonderful article written by my friends Niyati Shah.

Likewise, if we explain we get a lot of moral lessons from the “Mokshapatam” game. It is the best game to teach our kids about Hindu culture and traditions and what to do and what not to do. what are the consequences we experience by doing good deeds and bad deeds?

Conclusion:

With time, the game underwent a number of changes, Now it has 100 squares with no images and moral lessons, but the meaning remained the same: if you do good deeds, you go to heaven, and if you do bad deeds, you will be reborn.

                      Nowadays, High level games are available in the market. Those games have rich graphics, good sound quality and animation. We can easily download on our mobile and play the game anywhere. Even though we can not avoid the board game. Board games are not only for entertainment. It triggers our left side brain to think logically. Smart moves and decision taking nature plays an important role in board games. Game designers always keep this point while designing board games. We have different board games. Ludo is the most popular board game these days. As per survey most of the people are showing interest in the Ludo game.

                       We can see the discussion of board games in most of the civilizations. Ancients treated the board game as daily activity. They invited friends to play board games. Many times friends turned into enemies at the end of the board games. It leads  to misunderstandings and wars. As per the records Pachakalu (Pachasi) Senet, Hounds and Jackals were the oldest board games. Ludo is inspired by those games. Four players are required to play Ludo. Now the Ludo is available for six players also. 

                        Pachasi, nowadays we call Ludo, is discussed in Mahabharat. The die is little bit changed when we compare pachasi and Ludo. Pachasi die is modified by square cube die and Patented as Ludo in England in 1896. As per the history, Ludo(Pachasi) was created in India in the sixth century CE. You can find the clear sign of the legacy of the Ludo game in caves of Ellora. 

                         Analytics says that 80 mobile phones out of 100 mobiles have Ludo games. The Ludo game has experienced significant growth from 1990. The popular British daily newspaper The Guardian described board games as “Making a comeback”. Now we are all witnessing the success of the board game Ludo. This growth was raised by 40% from 2010 to 2014. A 1991 survey says that the global board game market was over $1.2 billion. The recent survey in 2021, it crossed $1500 million. All these statistics clearly say how people are interested in board games.

                          Nowadays, Ludo is available in video game format also. So we can download it and play with friends where we want. Ludo king is the most popular video game. The only issue with mobile games is the memory availability. Now the mobile is not only for calling. It is useful for knowledge gain, business activities and fulfilling all our daily needs. We can not remove the apps every time and reinstall them. The only solution, our apps should be available in less memory so that we can keep all our important apps. Here I can suggest one Ludo game app Ludo Family:Ashta Chamma, it is available in 11M. It is the best suitable Ludo game app for the people who are concerned with mobile memory.  It supports playing with friends as well as playing with computers. It has very simple graphics and game play. I am sure you will enjoy this app.
