Meccano Snakes and ladders


A Meccano Snakes and Ladders. This is for the June 2018 SELMEC secretary’s challenge. The idea is to create some sort of a pastime. It’s quite easy to make. I just got very low on narrow strips because I’m using a lot of them for it. I didn’t want to spoil it with a load of numbers, so these arrows show the direction the counters should go in. The snakes are just curved strips with a centre fork on top. The ladders are 1″ screwed rods attached to narrow strips. The counters are a threaded boss connected to a 1/2″ pulley. I had to buy extra colours for this. Greenish brown and orange are new, going along with yellow and red. It’s been played a couple of times and people have liked it, so there you go!
