Eels and Traps Board Game


A beautifully illustrated take on the traditional game of Snakes and Ladders, but with this board game, you can travel the waterways via eels and traps.

Throw the dice and count your moves on this beautifully illustrated game from First Nations educational resources team, Wingaru Kids. When you land on an eel, you can ride all the way up its helpful back. Land on a trap and down you slide.

With artwork by Dunghutti artist Aunty Cynthia O'Brien-Younie, this is a great maths game, that hones counting skills, concentration, turn taking and social skills.

Perfect for quiet time, holidays, rainy days. While you're playing, you can learn about science and ingenuity of the fascinating way eels have been caught by First Nations communities for thousands of years.
