Overview of the Paramapadham     

What is meant by Paramapadham ?  

                  Paramapadham is the snake and ladder game in English and it originated in India.  It was created ancient India before   1892. 

                 It is also known as  Parama Pada Sopanam means to highest place.  Where Parama Pada means Highest place and Sopanam means Steps.

                 Paramapadham was inspired by religion and was believed to be symbolic of man's attempt to reach God.

                The ladder represent virtues and the snakes represent vices. The snakes carry names linking them to stories from our epcis.


What is does ?    

            The Paramapadham is the multiplayer game. It's required three things they are the dice for getting the points and markers are used to identify which user? and the board. The paramapadham board is created with traditional and trade looking style. As i said which is the multiplayer game up to four member. Its also offer single player mode. This more interested to play the game and the game play time 14 minutes up to your playing. 

Approach to use:- 

            I am more interested to recreating the indians traditional 1892 to game into 2013 game playing with awesome graphics user interface design and more interaction game playing. I am using the  XNA Studio for creating the windows 8 Game with satisfied all aspect of the windows 8 application creation. I am Using the Visual Studio 2012 ultimate to creating the Paramapadham in Live in today trade. For animation picture and other graphics design editing i am using the Adobe Creative Suite.    


            The Paramapadham is the indian traditional game was recreated to the all in one windows 8 game application. This awesome gaming application is to more interested to playing the game in single Player Mode or Multiplayer mode.


           1. The first player rolls the dice and mark off the number rolled starting on the "1" spot on the board. All players take turns rolling the dice and moving their markers.

           2. If the marker reaches the number which has bottom of the ladder he climbs the ladder and go to the top of the ladder and continue from there, and If the marker reaches the number which has the face of the snake then he needs to go down to the box where it has its tail and continue from there.

           3. A player gets an extra turn if he gets 1, 5, 6 while rolling but he needs to move the marker each time he rolls the dice as he needs to follow the ladder or snake for each turn. If the player gets three ‘6’ in a row while rolling he must return to ‘0’ that is the beginning of the board and should not move until he roll’s another 6 on his turn.


                This game will take you more serious and funnier to playing the game. If the one user marker reaches the bottom of the ladder he climbs to the top of the ladder. If the user marker reaches the number snakehead the he has to fall down to tail of the snake. Which like an gets latter he climbs to go to top if the snake bits the he fall down.  

Using the code

            I am using the code JavaScript, HTML and C# for coding my Paramapadham application. I also if I uses the Lenovo all in one game controller like dice. I am using the inbuilt dice for all in one windows 8 game play and also I am uses the Lenovo accessories dices to getting points to playing my game. The dice using game are more few we all are knows casinos and some other. My paramapadham game also uses the dice to playing the game. I am using the Lenovo all in one accessory dice to getting the points to playing my game application. The Paramapadham is ongoing in development. So that the code for the Paramapadham is show in further.  

Points of Interest

               Well this the 1892 game playing still now in India and I am more interested to developing this game into the reality of the 2013 and also I uses the two different types of input modeling if has possible I want created the two input modeling one is from game inbuilt dice and other one is the accessories of the Lenovo dice. If it's possible I want to make it. 


          The Indian History traditional game into the reality of the 2013 standard and also I will assure to the game will be same from 1892 mode and i used the more attractive user interface to make more comfort to playing the game.
