About this deal

Moksha Patam was brought to Victorian England in the late 19th Century, where it was given a new name and a few modifications, including the removal of its earlier religious connotations. In 1943, the game was also launched in America under the name Chutes and Ladders. Tatz, Mark; Kent, Jody (1977). Rebirth: The Tibetan Game of Liberation. Anchor Press. ISBN 0-385-11421-4.

You are allowed to use the worksheets (as pdf) in a closed environment for teaching purposes, as such Google's Classroom. As long as the school or institution is free for the students and that they have free access to the worksheets.

Once you can pull your eyes away from the outside of this box, opening it will charm you even more. Snakesss continues its attention to detail with each component. All of the character tokens have a sleek yet on-brand design as well as being sturdy and of fantastic quality. This means that those bad liars who have to fiddle with something won’t ruin their poor character token.

A 2001 Egyptian film, Elsellem wel te'ban (The Ladder and the Snake), named after the game, about relationship mishaps of a flirtatious divorced young man falling in love. [32]Topsfield, Andrew (1985), "The Indian Game of Snakes and Ladders" in Artibus Asiae 46:3, pp.203–226. If a player lands on a square with the head of a snake pictured, they must slide down to the end of the snake’s tail

Invented in ancient India, Snakes and Ladders is a much-loved family board game with a fascinating hiss-tory! It was originally named Moksha Patam and is believed to have been created hundreds of years ago by 13th Century poet Saint Gyandev. Traditionally, the game was designed to teach Hindu values to children and illustrate the difference between good and evil, with the ladders representing virtues and snakes representing vices. The artwork on the board teaches morality lessons: squares on the bottom of the ladders show a child doing a good or sensible deed, at the top of the ladder there is an image of the child enjoying the reward; squares at the top of the chutes show children engaging in mischievous or foolish behavior, on the bottom of the chute the image shows the children suffering the consequences.One thing I particularly like about Snakesss is the player interaction. This is high and strong and an integral part of the game. Often one player will need to instigate the conversation to get everyone at ease discussing their answers out loud and while at it, trying to work out the Snakesss in the grass! Snakesss has a fantastic replayable nature because of the various roles you can take on every round. Everyone loves a villain and a bit of drama, the snake role will bring this out of you. You’ll be shown the correct answer whilst all of the other players have their eyes closed. Here is where the lies begin. Meanwhile, you also have the ordinary humans of each round. The snakes in the group will be trying to manipulate your decision whilst the final player will act as your guardian angel of sorts. The Mongoose of Truth character doesn’t get any special powers. However, they do receive a fancy wooden token and are definitely NOT a snake. I've taken a look and I think this resource might be similar to what you had in mind! Please do let me know if it's not what you were looking for :)
