I got an old thermal curtain at an op shop. I drew the game on the plain side. The residents coloured it in and then we played the game. I got a large soft dice at a $2 shop. It has been a great hit.

We have also made a horserace using the paint cloths. Any other ideas for me for a large group game that I can put on the floor so that all the residents can see.

I made my snakes and ladder game by sewing two painting cloths (hardware store) together and then paint with acrylics the whole game on it - ladders and snakes. After it is dried, I spray an acrylic spray that keeps from paint running etc. We have used ours for over 10 years and it still looks great. I had a carpenter cut out two rabbits (white and brown) put wheels on them and a long dowel (make a hole) to push them on the cloths. It folds easy and I usually play the guys and girls against each other. I also made a dice out of a perfect square box,, cover it with white paper and paint the dots ( this way the dice is nice and easy for even those who have only one arm can push off their laps. Great game.

Where did you purchase your game board? Cost?

Hi I bought mine years ago it was from an online shop after googling snakes and ladders it is at least 10ft square possibly a bit bigger it was £30 then which seems expensive for a game but I've used it virtually every fortnight for about 6 years so had my moneys worth. I'm lucky to have a huge lounge I recommend as big as you can afford and have space for as squares are crowded with stuffed toys when lots of residents are playing!!
