    Great app for young children and children with special needs.

    Based on Snakes and Ladders (and the Game of the Goose), the app allows to
    customize the board according to the abilities of my child. Snakes and ladders can be turned on and off, depending on who is playing. The game also allows to play with normal dice or with dice with colors, shapes or letters.

    One of my favorite features is the King of the Round: with this feature, you can decide in advance who will win the round. This is very helpful with young children with little patience: let them win a couple of rounds and their interest in the game goes through the roof!

    The ability to customize the game chips with the picture of each player is a nice additional feature.

    Overall, a great app that allows the whole family to enjoy a traditional board game together.
