I don’t remember ever playing Chutes and Ladders.
Some will say they are too young to remember, even if you do!

Did you know there was "German" version? (early '60ish) At least the figures fitted some German fairytale figures. My first, favorite and the last board game to interest me.

My husband, who grew up in England, said it was known as Snakes and Ladders there. Has no one come up with an Internet version? Lois

I used to play Chutes and Ladders all the time. Wax bottles btw are still around…I still love’m and now my kids do too.

I’m 57 and I remember that game as well as Candy Land and Pick-up Stix. Loved them, had them for my kids and now grandkids.

Snakes and Ladders (as Chutes and Ladders was originally known) is a very old game, going back to ancient times. Forgive me, but I don’t remember the exact origination of it and I’m on my phone so its not easy for me to look it up, but think Ancient Rome, Egypt, or India for time frame and where it began.
