A Russian friend found this game from his grandmother, but doesn't have the name or any other details. A reverse image search didn't turn anything up. What is it?

    A close-up & translation of the "spaces colour/symbol key" (to the right of the round pic) would help. Also, if the pic is of Lenin (l.) & Trotsky (r.) then this game would be dated 1923-1925 (the only post-Revolution time Trotsky would be wearing an uniform...assuming games re: the Revolution wouldn't be made until it succeeded 1918-1925 if they "felt lucky"). Trotsky fell "out-of-favour" in late 1925-early 1926 and wouldn't be featured in a game afterward. Jan 14, 2017 at 1:18

I think it is a dice game. The rules of the game are indicated on the game itself: you need to play a two or more, throw a dice and move according to the fallen number

    Would you be able to provide a translation to the text on the board?

    More info would be useful for the OP, you don't provide much detail.
