The Royal Game of Ur software brings you an opportunity to relive an ancient experience that dates back to 2600 BC, according to archaeologists. This software highlights an exciting strategic board game where you and your opponent face off to bring all your tokens onto the board, move them around, and finally get them out before your opponent manages to do so. Each player is assigned a set of tokens, either blue or red, which are placed off the board at the start of the game.

Turn by turn, each player must toss a four-sided stick by pressing a button on the screen, and the number that appears on the stick determines the number of steps your token can take. You must then select one of your tokens and move it towards its destination. The visible timer on the screen imposes a time limit to perform all your moves. If you fail to adhere to the time limit, defeat is inevitable.

  • Ability to play solo against the computer or in two-player mode.
  • Option to toss a four-sided stick to determine the number of steps.
  • A central column that acts as a war-zone where tokens of both players can meet and clash.
  • Mechanism for capturing opponent's tokens when they land on the same spot.
  • Special spots marked by a rosette that provide temporary immunity against capture and an extra toss for the player.

Your tokens will enter through a column on one side, cross the column, climb up the central column, then return to your side column before exiting the board. The central column is considered a war-zone where the tokens of both players can meet. When a token lands on a spot occupied by an opponent's token, the opponent's token is captured and must leave the board to start its journey from scratch. If a player manages to move a token to a spot marked with a rosette, the token is safe from any capture and the player gets an extra toss. A precise toss is necessary to get your token off the board.
