So what is this all about?
To all who don´t know why we have to talk about this: Pachisi is a 1D-directed game. This means, you only go forward with your gamepiece and that as far as your dice says...
And here the Variantdiscription starts:
Don't use the base with the color of your gamepieces but the one direct opposite to it as your starting point.

This means green starts from the blue base, red from yellow and so on.
Then you need a coin to determine positive and negative movement. Your goal is to get into your House, but your game pieces are moving forward and backwards now! All other rules apply as normal.

For 2D-Pachisi you need 2 6-sided dice of different color with the numbers -3 to +3 and a 7x7 Chessboard.
All Players start in the middle (x4,y4). Whenever both dice show the same absolut number (+3 and -3 are absolute same numbers) you get another gamepiece. The one dice shows the x-axis, the other one the y-axis. Your goal is to reach the corners of the board. If you want to make it harder, each player gets its own corner.

So have fun!

Why don't you just choose whether you want to move forward or backward, instead of using the coin?

This variant is very nice. The only problem I see is when you play with 3 people instead of 4: one of the players has a worse situation than the other 2.
