When did you last play Parcheesi? (1979)

When did you last play Parcheesi?

Maybe you played it as a child, within earshot of “The Shadow” on radio. Or maybe it was that long-ago summer by the lake. Or it could have been last week in the family room.

No matter. Parcheesi, the Royal Game of India, has been around for a hundred years or more. It’s still as much fun now as when bejeweled rajahs played it with their favorites when the monsoons kept them indoors.

Think about it. If it wasn’t fun to play, could it have lasted this long?
