Chutes and Ladders: Religious Edition

I can’t believe no one created this before: Chutes and Ladders: Religious Edition:

Crispian Jago explains the rules behind the “Heaven & Hell” board game:

Each player places his counter on the first square. The youngest player roles the die first and moves his counter along the resulting number of squares. Blindly follow the instructions on the squares you land on and and move heavenward or hellhound accordingly along the red or yellow lines.

So many hidden gems in this one :)

    You’ve lopped off the end of your son’s cock! What did you do that for you fucking idiot. Go back.”

    It doesn’t matter how you finish the game, we’ll all be baptised Mormon when it’s all over.

    Technically speaking Snakes and Ladders was originally an Indian religious game. This one is still very cool.

    Good luck with that, my sister always wants to play CandyLand.

    Especially funny was that 2 spaces earlier was a Jewish space/box, where lopping off the end of your son’s cock was rewarded!

    It almost makes it seem like each religion is just making this stuff up….

    Oh, wait… I see what they did there! :-)

    Maybe Calvinball would be better then Snakes & ladders for a “religious edition” – just make up the rules as you go along.

    Must be something from England, since they use “pissed” as a term for “drunk”.

    “Pissed as a fart” LOL

  • Daniel Wall

    Lol, …but seriously, I’m not sure that does count as a step towards Hell.

    I’m awkwardly delighted at the inclusion of Egyptian mythology.

  • Brian Westley

    I think there should be a single atheist space; if you land on it, you just stop playing the game.
