Tock


Tock

, in which players race their four tokens around the game board from start to finish—the objective being to be the first to take all of one's tokens "home". Like Sorry!, it is played with cards rather than dice.

Overview

Tock is a Cross and Circle game in the style of Pachisi, an Indian game played since the first millennium BC. Its exact source is unclear, but it probably began as a variant of Ludo, a board game which appeared in England in 1896.

Variations

Some versions of the game use pawns or "men"; other versions use marbles instead, which advance on a wooden board with circular indentations in it to hold the marbles.
