Do you know that the game of snake and ladders originated in India. It was created by poet saint Gyandev of 13th century. Back then it was called Mokshapat. The ladders represented virtues and snakes represented vices.

Although the rules of the game has changed a lot over time its basic theme remains the same regarding virtues and vices.

In ancient times this game was used for giving moral instructions to children. In the original game the number of snakes were always higher than the ladders.
