A game to learn about Snakes and Snake-bites.
More than a million people have died due to snakebites in India in the past 20 years. Snakes continue to be killed in this conflict. Snakebites can be avoided and snakes saved by simple precautionary measures and better awareness.
“Snake-a-doo” is an original take on the conventional snakes and ladders game, only this time without any ladders (and only snakes!). It is geared towards education on 9 snake species commonly found in India including the 4 main venomous ones. Designed with careful messaging, attractive colours, good photographs and in the tradition of a good board game that will be fun and learning at the same time.
In 3 sizes – Small, Medium and Large
Available in English, Hindi & Marathi
