How to play

  • You’ll need counters and a dice.
  • Each player puts their counter on the space that says ‘start’.
  • Take it in turns to roll the dice. Move your counter forward the number of spaces shown on the dice.
  • If your counter lands at the bottom of a ladder, you can move up to the top of the ladder. You have learned about one of the many interventions used to tackle NTDs.
  • If your counter lands on the head of a worm, you must slide down to the bottom of the worm. On the way down, read about the NTD which set you back.
  • The first player to get to the space that says ‘finish’ is the winner.
  • Share your pictures playing the game using the hashtag #beatNTDs.
