Taamaa’s games are contemporary translations of the best loved childhood games.the collections bring a contemporary edge to ‘play’.

Originating in India as part of a family of dice board games, Moksha Patam (the name it was known by in ancient India) made its way to Victorian England becoming Snakes and Ladders. The concept, when later introduced in the US, became Chutes and Ladders.The historic version roots in lessons of morality - where a player’s progression up the board represented a life journey complicated by virtues (ladders) and vices (snakes).


Taamaa’s version has a board inside a balsa wood box, so your dice won’t escape when thrown. The board itself has a soft touch, with a bonded leather lid, which is an eco-friendly material made from leather discards, and features vibrantly coloured graphics.
