Vintage Snakes and Ladders Game - So Much More Fun than X Box...
A Happy Family indulging in a spot of Snakes and Ladders on Games Night...
Judging by the pictures - old stick telephones, crashed bi-planes, racing cars, this is a 1940s, possibly earlier board. Well, I say "Board", it's actually a folded piece of cardboard.
There's also a little plastic pot with 4 counters and a tiny dice.
The whole thing is in a cellophane bag - so maybe packaged up later but using earlier boards.
I think this may be the case as I also have 1 of these boards with a wooden shaking pot and a paper backed much older cellophane bag. The board measures 28 by 28cm, and the label has MADE IN HONG KONG printed on the back, along with instructions..
I found these in an old shop clearance - the bags and headers show the odd little bit of wear from storage.
