Snake and Ladders is a classic board game played with dice and a game board featuring a grid of numbered squares. The luck determines your victory. Navigate your game piece from the starting square to the final square, usually located at the top of the board, by rolling a dice and moving your piece accordingly.
The game follows turns clockwise. Choose the number of people to play with you, starting with one player. Can accommodate up to six players in the same game.
Choose your pieces according to the color you like best to mark them. Once you've chosen your character, start the game right away. You will roll the first dice, the dice roll randomly from one to six. Your piece will advance the number of steps corresponding to the number of dice rolled. Then it's the remaining player's next turn. Compete against each other to see who the ultimate winner makes it to the other side of the game board.
The element of luck is what decides whether you reach the finish line first or not. Quickly climb the ladder to reach the finish line or fall back to the original position when encountering a snake's mouth. What are you waiting for? Check your luck right away.
The board is adorned with various ladders and snakes connecting different squares. Ladders allow players to climb up the board, advancing them closer to the final square, while snakes force players to slide down the board, setting them back in progress. The outcome of each turn is determined by the roll of the dice, which dictates how many squares a player can move forward.
The game is often played by multiple players, taking turns in a clockwise direction. When a player lands on the base of a ladder, they climb to the higher square at the top of the ladder. Conversely, if a player lands on the head of a snake, they must slide down to the lower square at the tail of the snake.
The game is based on sheer luck, as players rely on the roll of the die to determine their moves. It is often played as a race contest, with the first player to reach the finish square being the winner. The game is popular with young children and is often used as a fun way to teach counting and number recognition.
