Any version of Snakes and Ladders can be represented exactly as an , since from any square the odds of moving to any other square are fixed and independent of any previous game history. The Milton Bradley version of has 100 squares, with 19 chutes and ladders. A player will need an average of 39.6 spins to move from the starting point, which is off the board, to square 100. A two-player game is expected to end in 47.76 moves with a 50.9% chance of winning for the first player.
Children love Chutes and Ladders! As they travel along the game path, they encounter situations that either reward them (for good deeds) or punish them for misbehaving. It’s all about rewards and consequences. And while playing, they’ll learn to recognize numbers and count to 100.
Now that you know far more than you care to about my career, the key is to apply this to your own. Map out where you are, where you want to be, and then begin to connect the squares with your chutes and ladders.
