Every turn. The player in the last place for that turn gets to nominate a space to shift the trap-door to.
If there are two people who are equal last, will there be no trap door?
In this case, they both get to nominate a space each and TWO trap-doors will be placed.

I was going to suggest 1 to 4 as well.
I'm thinking with 1 to 3, it will be too easy to deduce where each person has chosen to go.

Haha, but its okay, the game has started. Lets see how this goes.

My thoughts are that move 3 and move 4 are simply too fast on such a small board. Instead, with the options of 0,1,2,3, players have a choice of picking 0 and staying put.

Picking 0 is simply a defensive option to stay on a space you already know is relatively "safe" (unless of course, someone trap-doors you) until your better numbers free up.

I guess this game is going to have some serious leader bashing.

About the trap door thing. Do my traps expire?
How does that work?

So, as long as I stay behind, I can keep laying traps?

That is correct. Trap-doors only last for one turn. And yes, if you remain behind, you can keep placing trap-doors every turn.

Now things get interesting... ;)

EVeryone have their numbers refreshed, so you can pick 0,1,2,3 again.

gregor, Stompy and dougp can specify Trapdoors this round.

Moves left:
gregor 0,1
jttm80 0,2
dougp 2,3
Stompy 0,3

Given that Stompy has a 3 available at space 22, I'd say that he's pretty much won the game.

Congratulations Stompy!

Turn 4 resolution:
gregor moved 3 from 2 to 5 and climbed ladder to 15. Placed trapdoor at 19.
jttm80 moved from 18 to 19, dropped down Trapdoor from 19 to 12, and then got Snaked from 12 to 7.
dougp moved from 4 to 5 and climbed ladder to 15.
Stompy moved from 14 to 16 and climbed ladder to 22.

Thanks for playing everyone!
