    It is difficult to separate it's history from therelated board game Chaupar who most probably is either a ancestor ofPachisi or developed alongside Pachisi in the same timeframe4.

    Pachisi was called "the poor man's Chaupar". Thispartly since cowries (the playing pieces in Pachisi) were used ascurrency by the poorer Indian classes and partly because Chaupar is amore complex game and therefore regarded as more aristocratic. Todayboth games are regarded as folk games and trivial pastime.

Pachisi game boards are usually folded for storage. Cut a 24" length of ribbon in a coordinating color to use as a tie. Fold each arm in half, and then fold two arms over the center square and fold the other two arms back under the center square. Tie the bundle together with the ribbon in a loose bow.
