Pachisi, sometimes called the National Game of India, is a race game for four players played on a cross-shaped board. Each player must race their pieces from the centre, around the board, and back again, landing on their opponents where possible to send them back to the start. Players form partnerships, and the game is won and lost by partners, not individuals.

The first page contains the centre of the board, the pieces, and the cowrie shells that are used as dice. The second and third pages contain the four arms of the cross. The fourth page contains assembly instructions, and the rules of play.
