How can one say know the treachery that Chutes & Ladders give us. How we get frustrated that we are almost at the top and then the snap of the spinner we are back to square one.
There was a part in Grown-Ups where Chris Rock (Kurt), Adam Sandler (Lenny) and Kevin James (Eric) playing the game as it was poker. I enjoyed how they played it for money while using food pieces as chips to gamble on the game.
Yes the game is competitive and I will admit I do get frustrated when I am about five spaces from winning and I get the ladder that goes back to the bottom. It is an evil evil game and I did when I was younger and playing today with my eight year old gets very competitive and ugly.
