Every ancient game has a story behind its origins. Scripted from an exciting Sci-Fi perspective, this is a story of how the ancient Snakes&Ladders board game came to be.
Millions of years ago the galaxy was devastated by a terrifying war between the Humans and Reptilians. It all began on a dark desolate Earth-like swamp-filled forest world in a distant uncharted corner of the galaxy. A Galactic-TriAlliance Officer faces off with serpent-like Reptilians while searching for an Artefact that could change the fate of the galaxy. Episode 1 delves into this first encounter between the two species, before the galactic war began.
