Have you ever drawn a snakes and ladders game board on your whiteboard? How long was your back turned to the class (and what craziness was going on behind you)? Oh, where's my dice, I'm sure I put it in my bag? What am I going to use as counters to move teams around the board?

I got tired of all that and worked on a simple solution - project the board onto the screen using PowerPoint, embed a clickable dice and have counters that can be moved around the board real-time live by click and drag. No more drawing the grid on the whiteboard. No more picking the dice up off thee floor again and again. No more moving kids’ counters around the board for them. If you're at home, this is an easy time filler your kids can play or you can play along with on the laptop or PC.

How does it work? Open the PowerPoint (it's a macro enabled PowerPoint file) and start the slide show. A student from team A can click the interative dice button and then, to move the counter real-time to the correct position (without exiting the slide show), they click it and move the mouse to position the counter in the right place. Team B then has a turn. It's all done live within the PowerPoint show, no need to pause and edit the slide manually.

Happy days! Hope it makes playing this timeless game a little smoother for you, like it did for me. I've used it at various levels in a private school in southeast Asia (and on the odd occasion with adult learners in small groups). The board is blank and you can edit it (add text or pictures / move the snakes and ladders if you wish).
