Snakes and Ladders Online is an ancient Indian board game regarded today as a worldwide classic It is played between two or more players on a gameboard having numbered, gridded squares. A number of "ladders" and "snakes" are pictured on the board, each connecting two specific board squares. The object of the game is to navigate one's game piece, according to die rolls, from the start (bottom square) to the finish (top square), helped or hindered by ladders and snakes respectively.

SNAKES AND LADDERS GAMEPLAY (Rules)
Each player starts with a token on the starting square (off the board next to the "1" grid square) and takes turns to roll a single die to move the token by the number of squares indicated by the die roll. Tokens follow a fixed route marked on the gameboard which usually follows a boustrophedon (ox-plow) track from the bottom to the top of the playing area, passing once through every square. If, on completion of a move, a player's token lands on the lower-numbered end of a "ladder", the player must move the token up to the ladder's higher-numbered square. If the player lands on the higher-numbered square of a "snake", the token must move down to the snake's lower-numbered square.
The player who is first to bring their token to the last square of the track is the winner. The player must roll the exact number to reach the final square to win.
