But the commitment to playing a “fair” game took a wild turn when a 24-year-old woman approached a family court in Bhopal after her father allegedly cheated in the massively popular multiplayer game of Ludo.
After the incident, the upset woman wanted to cut all ties with her father, whom she didn’t expect to cheat, India Today reported.
The woman, who said she lost all her respect for her father after that game of Ludo, approached Sarita, a Bhopal-based counsellor, whom she informed about that fateful game which she was playing with her siblings and father when the latter killed one of her tokens, the report further stated. She added that she had expected him to lose the game for the sake of her “happiness”.
