Pachisi (Hindi: पचीसी, Bengali: পাশা, Kannada: ಪಗಡೆ) is a cross and circle board game that originated in medieval India which has been described as the “national game of India”. It is played on a board shaped like a symmetrical cross. A player’s pieces move around the board based upon a throw of six or seven cowrie shells, with the number of shells resting with aperture upwards indicating the number of spaces to move.
The name of the game is derived from the Hindi word pachis, meaning twenty-five, the largest score that can be thrown with the cowrie shells. Thus this game is also known by the name Twenty-Five. There are other versions of this game where the largest score that can be thrown is thirty.
The history of Pachisi has not been established prior to the 16th century. A 6th- or 7th-century representation of Lord Shiva and the Goddess Parvati said to be playing Chaupar (a closely related game) in fact depicts only dice and not the distinctive board.
