Salvete omnes,

I was reviewing my vocabulary recently and I ran across the following two words:

Ludus, Ludi (m.) school
Ludi, Ludorum (gen pl.) (m.) games

Does the genitive plural of Ludus also mean games? I am very confused by these two words.

No, it just happens to decline that way. So when you see the word "ludi", you have to pick which one makes the most sense.
