In Snakes & Career Ladders, roll the dice to move along the board. Each square has its own activity and you must complete each activity scoring as many points as you can along the way.

When you complete a level, you'll be taken up in the lift (or maybe even sooner via a career ladder) to the next level. Your aim is to reach the boardroom and make it all the way to the boss's office within 3 minutes. Your time ticks down whilst you are on the board game but pauses when you are in any of the mini-games.

Avoid the snakes which sit on trapdoors or you'll be demoted to a lower level!

The game features addictive mini-games including:

Quiz Challenge
Answer a tricky question about careers.

Fire The Boss
Throw tomatoes at the boss but avoid the workers!

Career Ladders
Choose the right ladders to reach the promotions office. Quick, quick! You don't have much time.

Briefcase Bonus
You'll be shown some items to memorise. The case will close and when it reopens something is missing - but what?

That was fun.

I liked it, I don't see very many board game flash's on here so it was a nice change of pace, even if it was one big advert.

this game is nothing more than a lame attempt to advertise for Every question asked in the game only had a PRO answer. I thought advertising for your company was against the newgrounds rules and regulations.

willcheng responds:

We make games. You can see that from all our listings. We are not sector1!

Thanks for the zero ranking.

This game is a very very creative game submitted here, there is level's in it and i love the certain randomizing while playing the game itself, it gets so fun and challenging while trying to get to the top of the promotion level.

For the quiz challenge, the quiz question generally consist of knowledge based and statistics based questions, the knowledge based itself it common sense, but statistics based, it depends on whether you have read up enough.

For the firing the boss, i love the randomizing alot, sometimes you get more boss to shoot at while sometimes you don't. The most i shoot is 7 while the least is 2, i seriously doubt the level grows higher as you grow higher in the promotion level, because i still get lesser shoots counts in the higher level compared to the lower level sometimes.

For the career ladders, this is also one of them which i love it. I passed all without failing any before. I love the stages from easy to hard, while you randomize the ladders and the promotion door around. But one thing to note that, the ladders are easy to locate linking to the promotion door itself.

Briefcase bonus, which i think i minus-ed one point for that reason. Sometimes, you don't even know what is that item. It goes me wondering what is that item that is missing, because the item is too small, and some of them, it's very tricky to figure out what the particular item is, but good part is that most of them are quite obvious.

Furthermore, you add in a faster way to climb the ladder while also a demotion way to the game, increase the fun of the game simply, not ust simply going up all way right from the start to the end. Plus when you did not do something correctly from any of the challenges, some points will be deducted, this is another good point to brag about, instead of just adding points all the way....

All in all, this game is just simple fabulous and realistic about careers.

KEEP UP THE GOOD JOB..!!! This game should be favourited by MANY!!!!
