The board game chutes & ladders alo popularly known as Snakes and Ladders, originated in ancient India. According to some historians, the game was invented by 13th-century poet saint Gyandev and was known with the name Mokshapat or Moksha Patamu. The squares in which ladders start representing for a virtue, and those housing the head of a snake were supposed to stand for an evil. The snakes outnumbered the ladders in the original Hindu game. The game was transported to England by the colonial ruler and a newer version was introduced by John Jacques in 1892. The modified game was named Snakes and Ladders and stripped of its moral and religious aspects and the number of ladders and snakes were equalized. In 1943, the game was reintroduced in the US by Milton Bradley under the name Chutes and Ladders.
