The Game of LIfe!

Our grandkids have been playing the Game of Life at our house for years. It's their favorite game. We have other fun games we play but come to Grandma and Papa's house and they want to play Life. This year Santa brought the kids the new electronic version. They brought it to our house and taught me how to play. It's very different. I liked that there is no arguing anymore over the money because it electronically keeps track of it for you. No more cheating.... uuhh mistakes. I'm not sure I like that you don't have to get married and have children. Now you have the choice to just be greedy greedy greedy and go for the money. I, of course, did this during one game and I won.

What a difference in the game boards too:
Old game board with spinner, bridges, mansions etc.

New game board that looks futuristic. You have the choice of going to Live It, Love It, Earn It or Learn It. It really is a lot of fun!
I miss the little cars though with the little people.

But in the new version the little skateboard you have to start out with is cute and you have to accumulate cash to get the economy or luxury car.

Either way, old or new, the Game of Life is way cool!

Thats funny. I didn't know they came out with a new version. I loved the old one though, I guess I'll have to get the new one for my kids to play. They'd love it. Its funny how certain games stick with going to Grandma's house. At my G-ma's it was always checkers. Even though she had tons of other games.
