Simple, fun

Too Simple

Could this be the most infuriating game ever? Yes, it could. What other game lets you almost win, then kick you in the ball when you think you've made it? (excluding golf, football, othello, big two, etc. etc.) Well, this is the one where it does it absolutely without fail. The Game Relatively...

Easy fun game to play

None

Having just heard a question on The Weakest Link to which the answer was Heaven and Hell I though that I should update this opinion on Snakes and Ladders to show what a clever smart arse I am. Known as Heaven and Hell in India, Snakes and Ladders is probably one of the oldest board games to grace...

Don't steal, don't lie, don't be lazy! Now play that game of Snakes and Ladders and learn how to be a good child for mummy and daddy! So was the intention behind Snakes and Ladders, as a Victorian game to develop good morals in young children. Snakes and Ladders was one of my favourite games as a...

“Opinion from a confused guy”

Has the mystery appeal for children

The magic kinda fades as you grow up

One of lifes little mysteries I guess. Not snakes and ladders, but why on earth I am sitting here close on midnight, writing an opinion on snakes and ladders. Somethings not right - but bear with me. I have an opinion on the game, therefore I'm entitled to write about it. The game itself is...

It has to be the best of classic board games...

Ok so there is not much skill involved in this game at all, it is just the luck you have when you throw the dice, but the game does have its advantages. Firstly the game is often played by small children who are yet to or in the process of learning to count and seeing anll the numbers laid out in...
