I haven't heard of this story - has anyone else got any source for it?

can you tell me if the game of parcheesi, pachisi or ludo had any connection
to the battle of mahabharata. i heard the tale that a king wagered his land
on the game, lost and thus the battle was begun. any truth to this?

if you can enlighten me at all, i'd appreciate it.

thank you
