If you’ve never heard of Professor Plum, then you’ve almost certainly never played the classic ‘whodunnit’ game Cluedo before. This mystery game is all about playing detective to find out the murder weapon, the room it happened in, and who the murderer was. Everyone loves solving a good murder mystery!

Snakes & Ladders

First created many centuries ago in India, Snakes & Ladders initially had more snakes than ladders to teach children religious and moral values. Ladders take you up, but if you land on a snake you slide back down. It wasn’t until the late 1800’s that the game was modified to remove the religious aspects of the game which helped increase its popularity in the West.
