Guns and Ladders

Stephanie and Cory came over with the grandkids this evening. I was playing Candyland (and shamelessly cheating so that Kaith could win quickly) and Trevor announced that he was going to buy a game with his birthday money.

Trevor (age 4): I'm going to buy Slides and Ladders.

Me: Chutes and Ladders?

Kaith(age 5): Guns and Ladders??

Me: ...(pause while I figure it out)...Oh, not Shoots and Ladders, Chutes and Ladders. A different kind of chute. It's spelled differently even though it sounds the same, it means a slide.

Oh, that's pretty clever.

I love how moralistic the game is (good actions take you up and bad ones take you down) so that it can double for FHE.
