    Re: Uckers board

    The Uckers board ( Devonport Command Version) and the only one granted a Royal Charter and approved by their Lordships at the Admiralty follows the exact same pattern as the standard Ludo Board.
    The pieces can be made from a pussers broom handle four tits per colour.
    Red, Green, Yellow and Blue.
    Subtle variations to the colours may be tried to camoflage the board if necessary.
    A better game can be had if General Service rules are applied, should be clarified before game commences. ie. Suck backs, blow throughs and Snake eyes all out.
    Timber shifting is the most heineous of crimes (if caught) the last person to be caught timber shifting in the Inter Command Championships was a man called "Jimmy" sometimes resident on these forums. He was exiled to Australia! If needed will forward you the approved version.

    Can't beat 8 piecing someone and putting there name on the back of the board. Grim when your 8 pieced and can't get a rematch.
