KJIPUKTUK (Halifax) – This Snakes and Ladders Game is composed of 30 squares.  Roll a dice and start at the bottom left corner at the first square.  

If you land on a ladder, jump to a higher level,  if you land on a snake topple down a level or two.  The ladder means if you qualify, you will get paid for the holiday.  The snake means whether the business or store is opened or not, there is no extra pay for working that day.

Watch out for Boxing Day — if you are not in a union you will likely not get the day off with pay.  

Each player takes a turn and rolls the dice. Whoever first gets to 30 (top right corner) wins the game.
