I loved Life as a kid! It has been years since I have played so I was excited to review this game. THE HUSBAND saw the game when it arrived and then told me he had never played. What?! Never? I have been married to this man for almost 13 years and did not know this sad fact.
Needless to say, family game night was ON.
I loved that the wheel is attached to the board. No losing it. No spinning onto the floor. No fighting over who will hold it. Good job Hasbro.
I also like that the instructions are on laminated cardstockish paper. Perfect. No tearing up and much harder to lose. Again, well played Hasbro.
The Game of Life is for ages 8+, my six year old did just fine. My 3 year old would not have been able to play on his own but he did a great job spinning for me. My 8 year old and THE HUSBAND loved it! It was so fun to see what choices every one made about careers, buying houses, kids etc.
I don’t remember “Action” spaces on the original game, but they were some of our favorites. They gave the game a good pace to it and kept everyone interested.
Overall the game was huge hit and I would definitely recommend adding it to your family game night!
