ESL English Lesson: Great Traditional Board Games
David Robinson

Today, let’s talk about great traditional board games. Perhaps the obvious one is chess? Traditionally it is played on a chess board and involves two players. Chess pieces include the King, Queen, Knights, Bishops, Rooks and Pawns, which are either black or white in colour. The winner is when one person checkmates their opponent. Perhaps you might fancy a game of draughts? Once again it involves two people who play the game using a black and white draught board and circular black or white draught pieces.

Another popular traditional board game is snakes and ladders. This involves a dice and a bit of luck to beat your opponent to the top of the board from 1-100. If you are lucky you might land on a square and go up a ladder to increase your position, or you might be unlucky and have to slide down the snake to a lower position.
