4) For each roll of dice we want to move our coin then only for bonus we want to roll.

5) When the count ends and our coin is in the bottom of the ladder then climb over the ladder to the top and we have a bonus tern even if we have 2,3,4.

6) Like wise if the count end and our coin is in the mouth of the snake we move to the tail of that snake. Even if we have 1,5,6 or 12 there is no other tern. Like wise all players play their terns.

7) At the end if we get value greater than the last cell then don't able to move and even bonus tern u cant able to play in that round. For example if total 100 cells u are in 95 then 6 or 12 is not able to used.
