Parama Padam was created by the followers of the Vaishnavite faith, with the dual purpose of entertainment and teaching moral values of human life. On the game board, there are a hundred squares which are illustrated with snakes and ladders. The ladders in the game represent virtues and the snakes indicate vices. Ladders take you up as the good deeds take us to heaven, while the snakes bring you down as to a cycle of re-birth. The final goal is to reach Vaikuntha or heaven. This game, which originated in India in the 10th century CE, was popularised worldwide as “Snakes and Ladders” by the British, during the 18th century CE.
