Climb ladders - dodge snakes

There are ladders and snakes of varying lengths scattered around the board. Landing on a snake causes you to slide down the board, while you can climb up ladders you land at the foot of.

About Snakes and Ladders

Snakes and Ladders is a chance-based board game featuring 100 squares. Players must get to the top while dealing with the consequences of every dice roll.
