Yes, this is one real tough board game without the helpful ladders! I Like this qote regarding other versions of Snakeism found on Google - "Any long, pointless, convoluted piece of speech which serves no apparent purpose apart from annoying and confusing the listener" .


  1. Yeh, and it doesn't work as Chinese checkers, either. It does, however, fit an image in my head of a psychedelic-era album cover where the band couldn't afford to hire a decent psychedelic artist. I imagine the band saying to the artist who made this, "So... what is this anyway?" And the artist goes, "Uhhh... snakeism?" =laugh= I love it.

    1. I looked up snakeism and there are meanings out there!

  2. I actually had to look up The Game of Snake to see the original game board (and the ladders) I have never heard of this game! Love your collage. Central figure looks like Ozzy?

    At any rate, here is Ozzy's famous snake quote:

    “After a real snake ended up on stage one night, it was well and truly pissed off about being on stage with Ozzy Osbourne, that snake was.”

  3. Not to be confused with Snackism - the love of eating crisps and popcorn etc. The lady with the snake is from a horror film still - not sure which one. Only aware of snakes and ladders and one very old board game in the book I am cutting up where the basis of this collage came from.
