You have astack of questions ( can be words to spell, times tables, fractions to simplify...whatever you are working on.)

You play as normal until you get to a snake or a ladder, then depending on whether you are the adult or child..

Child:- adult takes a card from the pile and the child has to answer if they get it right they do not have to go down the snake ( or they are allowed to go up ladder.) If they get it wrong then they have to go down snake (or are not allowed to go up ladder.

Adult: when an adult lands on snake ( or ladder) adult takes card from pile and child answers it ( note it is always the child who has to answer the question) .
If child answers correctly then adult has to go down snake( or can not go up ladder) if they answer wrongly then adult stays at top of snake ( or is allowed to go up the ladder).

The child has the power to stop the adult progressing up the board and so is keen to get the answers right and there is not the usual imbalance between adult's knowledge and child's so you don;t have to let them win.
