This game is known as Snake and Ladder or Chutes and Ladders. It is dispersed all over the world. It is also a very simple board game that can be played without any age limit. This is a very old game and started in India as “Moksha Patam”; later, it spread all over the world.

Two or more people can play this game at the same time. For that, one person is entitled to one piece. Each player has only one board and one dice. For the pieces, you can use anything easy that you can find around the house. Examples of that are given above. For this game, you have a square board with 100 squares numbered from 1-100. You can see ladder and snake images there. In this game, playing is done from the first square to the last 100 squares. The numbers to play are determined by the dice. The dice are rolled in turns to move the piece on the board. The first person to reach the 100th square, after navigating the obstacles, wins. When moving across the board, players climb up when they encounter a ladder and slide down when they land on the head of a snake. It’s a simple and minimal rules game suitable for beginners of any age.
