Snakes and Ladders is one of the first board games we play. It's simple enough; everything depends on the fall of the dice. With a bit of luck and serendipity on your side, victory can be yours. But nothing is guaranteed until the very last minute; one wrong throw and you can end up back at the start. It's a game that teaches us the value of intelligence; we can never be certain how luck will fall. Yet, today, in the build up to the Lunar Eclipse, you can create the advantage you've been looking for.
