Snakes and Ladders
|CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.|
This ancient game popular in India as Moksha Patamu was played as a metaphor for Hindu ethics and consciousness long before it became this all time children's classic. Historically, the Ladders represented virtues such as generosity, faith, and humility. The Snakes represented vices such as lust, anger, murder, and theft. Landing on virtue would let you advance, while landing on vice would cause you to fall back. The moral of the game was that a person could attain salvation through performing good deeds.
Today, this modern version, first billed as "England's famous indoor sport" is best known for developing virtues such as counting and turn-taking, skills that, while not guaranteeing nirvana, are sure to help young children advance in their development. A simple game of seesawing action, where winning is dependent on only the throw of the dice, it is sure to delight.
