Object

Be the first little Critter to go from Square number 1 to Square number 100.

 

Set-Up

 

Playing the Game

  1. Each player chooses a Critter and spins the spinner. The player with the highest number goes first. All players start at Square 1.
  2. The first player places his/her Critter on Square 1 and spins the spinner and moves the number of spaces shown. Play passes to the left.

 

NOTE: Two or more Critters CANNOT occupy the same Square at the same time. If a Critter lands on a Square that is occupied, he/she should move ahead to the first vacant Square along the path. If a player is on Square 99, he/she must stay on Square 99 until he/she spins the number one in order to move to Square 100.

 

When a player reaches Squares 56, 57, 61, 62, 82 and 83, he/she jumps right over the spinner and continues moving on the other side.

 

Ladders

If a player stops on a Square at the BOTTOM OF A LADDER, he/she must move up to the TOP of the LADDER. For example, if a player lands on Square 4, he/she must move up to Square 27 and on his/her next turn, the player will continue moving toward Square 100. LADDERS LEAD UP ONLY.

 

Slides

If a player stops on a Square at the TOP OF A SLIDE, he/she must slide down to the Square at the BOTTOM of the SLIDE. For example, if a player lands on Square 77, he/she must slide down to Square 18 at the bottom of that SLIDE. On his/her next turn, the player will continue moving toward Square 100. SLIDES LEAD DOWN ONLY.

 

For moving, the Squares are counted as regular Squares when a slide or ladder passes through them.

Winning the Game

The first little Critter to reach Square 100 wins the game. Square 100 must be reached by an EXACT spin of the spinner or by the Ladder from Square 70.

 

If a player is near Square 100, but spins a number that would take him/her past it, the player does not move. He/she must spin again on his/her next turn until the EXACT number is spun, to move into Square 100.
