Something to go along with the Monopoly from a few weeks back?


Pick a car, hop in and take a spin through life. Try and steer clear of trouble, try to make all the right decisions and you could retire a millionaire.

Cruise around the board picking up wealth, valuable Life Tokens and maybe even a family. But be careful, landing on the wrong spot could cost you a fortune.

The game is different every time you play, will you choose the same paths today as you did before? Will you win the lottery? Help the poor? Or will you blow all your money on a yacht? Have a play and find out, just what the game of life has for you.

Steer clear of trouble and make the right choices. Become the champion and retire in riches.

The classic Game of Life with refreshed graphics.

Great Price, but it looks like the new version. I bought this from Play a couple of months ago as its a really good game for young families that is not too complicated for a five year old and not all boring childish "fwuffy bunnies".

THAT said, they have mucked with the mechanics of the game. Gone are the status symbols and the bit at the end where getting to the mansion first actually meant something. They have also made it possible to be sacked, so midway through the game you can suddenly find yourself out of a cushy lawyer job only to find gainful employment as a binman.


Its good, but be prepared for a few "that's not like the old version"s from the more experienced family members. My kids (8 and 5) like it a lot.

I've never played it myself so I'm not sure, but I suppose I'll wait for the comments, then. :P

We used to have this when i was little, i used to love it, but my brothers never wanted to play with me, as i think the game went on too long, but i loved it, recommended for to try

It's a good game. Takes around an hour to finish. I just think it really didn't need tweaking. I would definitely recommend it.
