Playing the Game
When your game is prepared, you’re ready to play. Player #1 will roll the dice, count the dots, and move that number of spaces.
If a player lands on a blank square, their turn is over and it’s the next player’s turn.
If a player lands at the bottom of the ladder, they’ll slide their pawn to the top of the ladder. Their turn is over.
If a player lands on a snake head, they’ll follow the snake down to the tail. This is their stopping spot. Their turn is over.
Continue in this manner until someone reaches the “finish” space at top of the game board.
