So every ancient games origins has a #backstory. Hence Snakes-N-Ladders: Origins – Episode 1 is scripted from an exciting Sci-Fi perspective. So this is a story of how the ancient Snakes-N-Ladders #boardgame came to be.

Millions of years ago the galaxy was devastated by a terrifying war between the Humans and Reptilians. Since it all began on a dark desolate Earth-like swamp-filled forest world, set in a distant uncharted corner of the galaxy. Here a Galactic-TriAlliance Officer faces off with serpent-like Reptilians while searching for an Artefacts. One that could change the fate of the galaxy. So Episode 1 delves into this first encounter between the two species, before the galactic war began.

So Snakes-N-Ladders: Origins – Episode 1 is a fun and intense shooter. Hence the games experiences start with a slow rhythm and end with a big bang! A similar vibe but completely different from say The Uncertain.
