Everybody remembers the old traditional games of 'Snakes and Ladders' and 'Ludo', games which we played as children with our own parents and grandparents. Here we have two traditional games in one, thanks to the sturdy double-sided playing board. And to bring the games more up to date, they are given a fun pirate twist. In the 'Snakes and Ladders' game, the jolly pirates use rope ladders to help them take short cuts to the big treasure chest and win the game. But they have to look out for the slippery sea snakes, which send them sliding back down the board. On the reverse side of the board is the game of 'Ludo', also with a pirate twist; players each have counters, and must try to be the first to get all their counters to their special pirate treasure in the middle of the board. If they land on the same square as another player, they can send that player's counter back to the start. This can prove very exciting when several players are close to winning the treasure, but have to look out for the others trying to send them home. Both games involve a lot of luck, and 'Ludo' can also include a certain amount of strategy, so children have to learn to be patient when the game isn't going their way. Particularly suited to children aged 5 to 9, these games have stood the test of time, and will be popular favourites for the whole family.

This is two games in one, the illustrations delightful and the games great. My kids love both.
So why only 3 stars? This is the first time ever I've felt disappointed in the quality and durability of an Orchard Toy. It has the fairly typical lift up flap construction for the lid rather than a box with a separate lid and the board folds up into four to be dropped in with the pieces. The board illustration is a sheet of thick, colourful, wipe clean glossy paper stuck and bound to each face of the fold up thick cardboard board. It looks great. But if the board is accidently folded up the opposite way to the intended way (which happened within the first week) the paper playing surface stretches too tight across the cardboard board. It ripped the first time it was folded the wrong way most of the way across the board. Not so pretty now it's been repaired with Sellotape. You might say it's our fault for folding it wrong but this is a kids game and I think it should be a bit more durable and able to withstand such handling. I see a similar comment in another review about the board.
Ludo and Snakes and Ladders are great games and this version is very appealing; young children will love it, but I've always commended Orchard Toys in the past for their durability and this time feel they fell short.
If you buy it, your kids will love it but be very careful how you fold up the board.
So I just wanted to let you know that the design has been changed; the board is now a cardboard four-piece 'jigsaw' which doesn't need folding - excellent! My four year old loves it, I love it... all is good.
The snakes and ladders has 4 cardboard pirates which are durable and colourful which fit into small plastic clips that act as stands. The board is bright and busy and looks good! My 4 year old loves the snakes and ladders game and has played it over and over again with us.
The Ludo has small, flat, circular pieces of compound card which act as counters for the game. They are 4 different colours and have 4 counters for each player. The board again is colourful and fun looking.
Overall this is a great game for young children. It engages my 4 year old well, he does prefer the Snakes and Ladders to the Ludo but I think this is mainly due to Ludo taking much longer to play to completion.
While the fact that it's I made of cardboard may put you off (most if not all Orchard Toys are made this way) the cardboard is layered so it is dense and sturdy and the decorative parts are clear, bright and glossy looking. We haven't had any problems with the durability of any of their products.
This is definitely a great introduction to board games for young children or a fun game for older children.
The whole look of the game is also very appealing to boys or anyone who is into pirates.
PS It is still one of his favourite games at the age of 6!
