That’ll Do Nicely

Mike, over at Coffee Corner, draws my attention to the fact that the makers of Monopoly are planning to replace the paper cash in the game with credit cards. He does some nice riffs on similar implications for other games.
And as a result, I learn that the good old British game of Snakes and Ladders is apparently called Chutes and Ladders in America. I wonder why Milton Bradley substituted chutes for snakes?

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
