I’ll admit it, when I was a kid the Game of LIFE wasn’t a game I liked or even understood. I mean, how fun is a game that talks about careers, college, buying a house, having kids, etc? Yaaaawn fest in my opinion. But my kids, eye roll, my KIDS on the other hand, yes, all 4 of them, have loved this game. For the life of me I could never figure out why.
When Hasbro gave me the opportunity to review it, I ONLY did it because of of my boys. I have to tell you, the slant was going to be about how much my boys like the game, blah blah blah, because I knew how much I disliked the “game” growing up.
The right way for me to review anything is to actually use whatever it is we’re reviewing so we set up the game and gave it a go. Shockingly, I really enjoyed it. I finally, for the first time, saw it as a game. I’m not sure why it alluded me as a kid. I think I saw it as too much like “reality” and not a “game” whereas my kids have all seen it as another way to come out better in the end than their siblings. lol They have more kids, better houses and better jobs. hahahaha Nothing like a little family friendly game.
I’m not even sure how many times we’ve played this game in the last month, but suffice it to say, it’s been quite a bit. We’ve all won at least once, and the time I won, I actually thought I’d lost badly, but I had two great houses and a pretty sweet job! I also finished second, which was pretty helpful! We have a new family favorite and The boys and I are getting ready to play it again! No, I’m not kidding! Check my Instragram and you’ll see. =) I’m going to try the career path instead of the college path we all 3 always take. We’ll see if it plays into my favor at all!
