A ESCADA is a ladder and a board. Together these two elements come into balance. Once the delicate balance between the ladder and the board is understood, it naturally becomes an open toy, allowing other elements to come into play and make it more complicated. There are no limits. We invite you to use any other object as a counterweight, for example: keys, a glass full of water, changing the board for a spoon or an egg, placing another ladder… these are just a few ideas. The interesting thing about the game is that each player can discover for himself the physical forces that serve to keep the ladder in balance.
