Asterix ludo game

Asterix – Ludo game

Horses don’t often have a field day in Asterix albums! They have a rough time pulling Obelix’s weight around Gaul in Asterix and the Banquet, transporting a menhir in the back of Justforkix’s chariot in Asterix and the Normans, or being painted black by a smooth-talking salesman (also in Asterix and the Banquet); today they seek their revenge with the Asterix Ludo game!

Based on the Asterix the Gaul album, this classic board game has been completely reinvented. Don’t be too much of a stickler about the Ludo presentation: the counters in this case are not horses but rather superb figurines of the key characters in the Asterix the Gaul album: Asterix, Obelix, Crismus Bonus and Caligula Minus. The first player to lead his 4 pieces into the indomitable Gauls’ village is declared the winner!

For the other players, there’s no point getting on their high horse: they must then concede defeat, unless they want to continue to see who follows home next. It’s an addictive Asterix game!
