Snakes and Ladders 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.
First add few player (Minimum 2) from the Add Player window and click on Play, It will take you to the Snack and Ladder Game window, Every player will get his/her turn to roll the dice and system will move the respective players marker on the game board accordingly.

Cool Guys :)
Fun playing snake and ladder. Great !
I am sorry to say that I don't like your design, as it isn't consistent enough. You should have used a different dice design (you should have made one yourself, that fits into the surrounding design), and a different board design (same reason). Another option would've been to create a fitting design around those graphics, but I'd guess that would be pretty hard, and not really worth the time (considering the 48h limit).
The Utility / Fun rating isn't that good, because I don't enjoy snakes and ladders, and your entry changed nothing about it.
Your entry isn't even innovative, as it is just a port of snakes and ladders to the virtual world. Although you could change that by introducing interesting additional game mechanics. But don't get me wrong: Simulating a game can be hard, but I'd guess that it isn't that hard for snakes and ladders (I would create a dictionary (that's what it's called in python, you can use an object or an associative array for that) that holds all "special" positions and the positions you would go to if you'd land on these; and then you just have to move the player accordingly ).
I haven't played snakes and ladder online. This is a first. In my opinion, UI needs a bit more polishing. If the board could be shared between players, it would have been great.
It is a very simple game and not too fun for me as a computer game. But it is looks fully implemented. And works well. Thanks for the cultural tour!
can't deny it. I had fun playing it.
Its fantastic how you folks bought an ancient board game to life!!
I had fun!
And I like the overall design.
Just wish there was a multiplayer :)
Also I hope the play figures were animated while moving in the future!
This is a really cool game. Nice Work
Good implementation of this game.
Very well thought out, and it looks beautiful. Snakes and ladders isn't a very interactive game, but you've managed to make it fun.
Could definitely benefit from some sort of animation.
Fun game to play. Design looks good and functions properly.
Well for mind fresh!!!
It would be good if you add better functionality ( user controlled ) than random rolling dice.
To win points on some small tasks, quests... whatever
Fun, good and clean implementation.
Overall impression is good. It works fast and do what it's supposed to do. The downside is that the game itself is not very interesting (skills not required and there is a pure luck), and in a digital implementation it loses the only two thing that player can do in real life - roll the dice with his own hand and move the marker manually. So, maybe that is not a proper game to implement. On the other hand, the idea is unique on this hackathon. Great job!
Nice, clean application! I especially like the dice rolling portion.
Nice design. A complete app with no loose ends. All the best!!
Enjoyed playing. Would be good if it lets us play with other players online.
A classic! I would add a little more work for the UI and perhaps some animations (slower animations) on the move of the players around the board!
Really fun to play! :D
I like your software. You just have a few usability problems: the new Activity could be written on bottom (not on top) because after I "rolled the dice", I always searched for what happened at the bottom. Hmm, it would be nice, if the move of the player would happen "slower" with some animation, because now is very hard to follow, what is happening. Can I see sour source somewhere? I'm curious for example: do you have a "Board" class or do you have a separate class for all numbered fields? Where do you store a not finished game?
- if steps were animated it would be more amusing
- playing over the network would be a big boost in the gameplay IMO
I love this app it's a great way to show people how to use angular for educational games.
