Heaven & Hell: The Board Game


Heaven and Hell is a fun board game for all the family.

To play Heaven & Hell, you will need:

The Heaven & Hell Game Board (Supplied)
Game counters or tiddlywinks (one for each player)
Dice (There might be some in your monopoly set you can borrow)
An ability to follow ridiculous rules without questioning
Nothing better to do

Each player places his counter on the first square. The youngest player roles the die first and moves his counter along the resulting number of squares. Blindly follow the instructions on the squares you land on and and move heavenward or hellhound accordingly along the red or yellow lines.

In fact, come to think of it, not entirely unlike snakes and ladders.

The numbers are a bit weird. No #62, #74 or #78. #57, #68 and #82 appear twice.
Or is that some subtle joke that I missed?

@Duncan, Yes it was an extremely clever, subtle and very funny joke. But no one seemed to be getting it, so I have reverted to the traditional numbering sequence :)

How come there aren't as many Sikh jokes and why are they missing at the top?

I'm guessing Firmamanet is a deliberate typo also ;)

A missed opportunity surely ?

It should be 3 dice so you can get a 666 straight to hell, do not pass gomorrah.

Shouldn't the oldest player go first. After all, the elders need to know what to teach the children who follow.

Another typo in 22. "Your" should be "You're".

58 and 68 both have typos.

Hang on, 68-58=10 and there are 10 pages between Deuteronomy and Leviticus (well probably, as long as you have the right translation, if not you're going to he'll anyway). Coincidence? I think not. Clearly that means we should eat cheese 10 times a month, but not on weekends (don't ask questions, blaphemer).

Anonymous- you can only eat cheese if its from Cheeses of Nazareth

Could you change one ordinary space into an "atheist" space, so if you land on it, you stop playing the game?

The Jehovah's Witness one says go back to Paradise on Earth, but I don't see a space with that title. What do you do if you land there?

@anon,

Yes that's a tricky one. I suggested asking the next well dressed man who knocks on your front door on a Saturday morning.
