Initial Thoughts: Orchard Toys never fail to produce fantastic classic games which are eminently playable and fun for all the family, so we couldn’t wait to have a family games night with Snakes and ladders with an added pirate twist.

We liked: The Orchard Toys Pirate Snakes and Ladders & Ludo has a sturdy and large playing board and is a great introduction to the two classic games.  It is the little touches that really make all the difference like having a small pot to trow the dice in make it perfect for little hands.  Also the numbers only go to 50, so it is suburb for younger children who have a shorter attention span.

We weren’t keen: The fact the the snakes and ladders only goes to 50 does make for shorter games, which depending on the age and concentration span of your children can be a blessing or a curse!

Overall: You really can not go wrong with the classic games and Orchard Toys have really just improved on a classic without fiddling with it too much, which is why Orchard Toys Pirate Snakes and Ladders & Ludo is so successful.  A must have for any games cupboard.
