Number ladder is played on a board consisting of squares with ascending numbers. The goal of Number ladder is to be the first to reach the last square.
Taking turns, the players roll the dice a maximum of 3 times. After each throw, the player can decide to throw again or to advance their own stone or the opponent's stone by the number of pips thrown. When the stone ends on a square where an arrow starts, the stone is moved to the square where the arrow ends. If it ends on the same square on which the other stone is placed, the other stone is moved to the square where the current player started his turn.
The player who first ends on exactly the last square (with the highest number) wins the game. If steps still need to be taken when the last square is reached, they are taken in the opposite direction.
