【Snakes Chess - Clearing all snakes paving path to MERDEKA 蛇棋 - 除万蛇,至到独立】【Maximum Card 极限片】
【2016 Singapore Traditional Board Games 新加坡传统棋艺】

I like this "Snakes and Ladders" Postcard from the Tunku Memorial which was finally used to realise a “Snake Chess" Maximum card. From this "Merdeka” Snakes chess board ,on the path to Merdeka, Tunku had to clear all kinds of snakes before the proclaimation of Merdeka on 31st. August, 1957. As shown on this chess board, corruption, racism ... etc are being equated as SNAKES .. Yes, when you play a SNAKES chess game, you will NOT liked to be bitten by a SNAKE. We can see SNAKEs  around us in our daily life, hence, beat the SNAKES, kill them, get rid of them from our life. This "Merdeka" Snake chess board reflected the era of the Tunku , if there is a new SNAKE chess board drawn up for this traditional game, I can see bigger and more SNAKEs on the path to beat the Game.

我特喜欢这一枚由东姑纪念馆发行的明信片,终于有机会让我用来制作一枚“蛇棋”极限片。这枚“马来西亚独立道路”的蛇棋,绘了许多在争取独立道路上所排除的种种恶蛇。棋盘上的一图一语把诸如贪污,种族等都与恶蛇划上等号。当你在玩这一盘“独立道路”蛇棋,一路上排除万难除蛇,一路到目的地,真是大快人心!这是一盘东姑时代的“蛇”棋,换是今日,那些恶蛇更多,更凶猛,要征服猛蛇,还要一番努力。我祈愿正在“蛇棋”盘上下棋的我们,能够一一把蛇给征服,一直到终点。
