Many of you send message to me saying Shiva will you create game for me. I want snakes & ladders. Once I see how you create the game in Construct 2 than I am able to create it myself.
Well my answer to you all is this. I am here on Construct 2 forum to help each and everyone. Not just one individual person. Why I should teach one person and not others? So therefore I am doing this simple snakes & ladders game. I will not add SNAKES or LADDER only how to move about on board. Left and right movements by player. Rest is up to you to add and so forth.

Snakes and Ladders are an ancient Indian board game regarded today as a worldwide classic. It is played between two or more players on a game-board having numbered, I have not added any numbers. the size of the grid (most commonly 8×8, 10×10, or 12×12) varies from board to board, as does the exact arrangement of the snakes and ladders, with both factors affecting the duration of play. Random die rolls determine game piece movement in the traditional form of play.
Start Construct 2 and create new project, name it Snakes & Ladders.
Set windows size set at 1024 x 680 and full screen off
Layout size set at 1024 x 680 Background
Set Margin 1024 x 680
Add layer and name it BOARD
Add layer and name it Dice
Add layer and name it Player
You have four layers Background, Board, Dice and player. Lock other layers and on your VG add colour or whatever you wish to add.
On Board layout add four text boxes and name them as below
Ladder I named mine as txtLadder
Snake I named mine as txtSnake
Move I named mine as txtMove
Press I named mine as txtPress
Create sprite grid size 48 x 48 so we can have board like below:
Set size to 480 x 480. With this we will have 10 x 10 boards. You can have more is well but, for learning just do same as mine. So your board looks like below. Note I have not added numbers but, you could.
Now lock this layer named Board.
Unlock Dice layer and add dice sprites that I have provided below

As I said above I have not included Snakes or Ladder. Hint I would use Array coordinate or some other ways to check for Snakes and Ladders. I hope you find this tutorial beneficial.
