Snakes and Ladders – A Bit of History

The Snakes and Ladders game can be dated back to ancient India. It is said that the game was meant to teach children (and adults as well) about human life and morality. The race to the finish line represents the journey of life; the snakes represent bad deeds which can give you bad karma; and the ladders are good deeds that will bring about good karma.

The British adopted the game and brought it to Europe. However, it got renamed in the United States as “Chutes and Ladders” when it was published by Milton Bradley in 1943. Bradley and the American publishers thought that the image of snakes might be too scary for children.

Today, the Snakes and Ladders game is a very popular game that no child has ever escaped its fun influence. It is the game both the young and old can enjoy!
