Your Guide to playing City Snakes and Ladders

In City Snakes and Ladders, there are a number of fields in the game just like in the famous board game.
The goal of the game we can tailor to your requirements but generally we award prizes for:
  • The smartest team (the team that generated the most points by answering the most correct questions)
  • The fittest team (the team that covered the most distance during the game)
  • The most strategic team (the team that gained the most points with as few steps as possible).
  • We do tend to award a wooden spoon prize for the team that came last. 
To be successful you need to move around, observe the environment and figure out a thing or two. And you need a tablet computer that we will provide each team. 
Here are some things to know:


The Event architect will brief the group and form the teams, issuing each team with their tablet, information pack and any additional resources required.  We encouage each team to come up with an original name for themselves, that they input in to the game and allows us to track each team accordingly.
For large groups, your starting field can be determined by the dice. Just shake the device to get your lucky number.  This is the field you need to head out to. It is red on the map and an arrow points to it, so it should be easy to find.


Question pops up on your screen when you get to the right spot. The questions always have multiple choice answers and they might include photos or videos. When a question pops up, you have to answer it.


Answering a question is probably the most important part of the game. You see - correct answers usually take you forward and wrong answers set you back. How many steps forward or backward each question takes you, you can see from the strategy map.

STRATEGY (optional)

Think about a board game. There are shortcuts to move you forward several fields at a time. Our game is full of shortcuts. Every question has shorter or longer shortcuts attached to it and you can have an easy overview of all of them on a handy STRATEGY MAP.

Get it?

You might want to answer one question deliberately wrong to go back some steps in order to take a long forward shortcut by answering another one right!  
This is the heart of the game. It does not matter how many times  you answer wrong or right, it just matters that you get to the finish with as few steps as possible within a time limit.


The finish field is clearly marked with a checkered pin. It might or it might not be the last field in the game. Just take that into consideration when building your strategy!


There is a time limit ticking down on the upper right corner of the game. Try to get to the finish within this time limit. However, if you do not get to the finish within a time limit, do not worry, you will be directed straight to the finish once the time has run out.


There are some technicalities that will help you in the game.


Choose a map or satellite view for navigation. Use whatever works best for you or switch between them as you see fit.


You can  open questions early. This opens the next question as if you were there. Penalty point is added to your score. Use it if you are running out of time or the location is not accessible. Sometimes this option is not available or is limited.

PLAN (optional)

Strategy map allows you to plan your route by clicking on the fields. Marked connections will then automatically also appear on a map screen. So you always know whether to answer right or wrong. This is really helpful stuff!


Well this is all there is to it. Hope this helps you to master the game.
