Snakes and Ladders is an ancient Indian board game regarded today as a worldwide classic. A number of 'ladders' and 'snakes' are pictured on the board, each connecting two specific board squares. The object of the game is to navigate one's game piece, according to die rolls, from the start (bottom square) to the finish (top square), helped or hindered by ladders and snakes respectively.[1]

This version was developed by Alvaro Montoro using HTML and CSS, to practice Pug and Sass, and without any JavaScript line of code.

The idea behind this project is that many classic board games are actually Finite-State Machines (FSM), so they can be recreated simulating the states of the automaton with radio buttons, labels, and some CSS styling.



Oh no! The snake bit you! You'll have to move your piece to the snake's tail.


Yay! You found a ladder! You can climb up now.


You made it home, but you didn't do it in an exact jump so you will bounce back the remaining tiles.


You made it home safely! You won!
