Customer Reviews

Best Game of Life version!Ive always liked game of life but I felt I wanted to explore a different more complex version. This is such a great game. It includes a small computer like device that keeps track of absolutely everything my husband was even impressed by it all you have to do is make your strategy and play. Every game is different and you can play ad many turns as you want giving you the option if a short or long game. I played this game with different groups of friends and each one of them loved them. My sister even asks me to bring it whenever I go to her house. 5Great fun, real life with mortgages, car loans, etcThis is an updated version of the Game of Life. Everyone gets a credit card at the beginning of the game (only 4 players or teams). A turn starts with the player inserting his credit card in the computer to receive his year's salary. Each turn represents a year of life and you pay your mortgage, car payment, expenses, and interest on loans before you move on the board. It's very realistic with promotions, college, children, houses, cars and vacations. The board is divided into four sections and it's up to you which section you enter: education, business, love, or adventure, unlike the original version of Life where you go through the whole board with little choice. For example, if you want to make money, you don't ever have to go to any other section than business. I was disappointed the first time I played it as there are only 4 credit cards and we had 6 people but two of us took partners and it worked out well. It seems to work well with mixed age groups - we played a 19 year old, three people in their mid-twenties, and older adults in their 60's at the same time. It was an interesting learning experience for the younger ones. It has now become our favorite game. 5Great family fun, but needs some tweaksWe bought this for my son this Christmas and have played it quite a bit so far. It takes a couple games to get used to it, but once you figure it out, the game is not difficult. The gizmo tracks everything for you so all you need to do is follow the instructions.You have 4 Life Paths the basically break out to Education, Work, Family, and Travel/Play. You go through them however you want as many times as you want. The object is to not only earn money, but also "Life" points by doing things that give you life experiences or are maybe good deeds. A dollar is worth a dollar, but a Life Point is worth about $100. In other words, if you earn 200 life points for helping your grandmother clean her attic, at the end it equates to about $20k as far as the game scoring is concerned. Being married and having kids, getting degrees -- all earn you Life points. You can choose to get an education, then get promotions, then marry, etc... whatever path you want.A good part of the game is that it does teach kids that there is more to life than money. My 11 yr old son just wants to earn to cash, but the first time we played my wife won despite not going to college or making much money. HOWEVER, that game was only 10 years long. Up it to 20 or 30 and money starts playing a huge role. Go to 40, and unless you are earning big, you won't win regardless of Life points.In other words, you should only play 20 to 30 years. Under 20, its pretty random. Over 30, it is basically whoever has the best job will win. We did a 40 yr game last night and my son didn't get married or have kids until his last few turns and he destroyed us by piling up cash. The length you play will have a determination on how fun the game is. Also, over 30 years gets boring and somewhat monotonous.My biggest gripes are the salaries and expenses. I realize this is a game and it isn't meant to be real, but both are skewed. If you don't own a home or a car or get married and have kids, you have no expenses. If you get a PhD -- which is achievable quickly -- you can be earning massive money quickly. Even without degrees, it is too easy to earn huge salaries ($500k to $2 mil). I feel the salaries should be toned down a bit, or at least made harder to grab, and that the expenses should be harsher. Just play long enough, and everyone is a multi-millionaire.Overall, that is a minor gripe. The proper lessons exist and they do ring through if you play the proper amount of years. I highly recommend this game. It is truly great family fun. 4A very fun game. Well-worth the cost.This game was recommended by our granddaughter. It's only available used, but it was worth finding it. We love playing it more than the original Life game (although we still love that one, too). We think that this one is more true to real life and it requires more strategy and planning in order to win in the game. As in real life, very often, things don't go as planned, and we have to resort to Plan B. I've bought one for myself and one for each of my children to take with them when they leave home. 5A twist on life...This game is not in production anymore, so you can't buy it at the Dept. Store, sorry.This is the most enjoyable life game made to date. You have a lifepod (computer) tthat does everything for you and calculates all the scores. It is only 4 players but it takes you on your life journey around the 4 basics of life, earn it(career), love it(famiily), Live it(travel), and learn it(education), you have to find a balance of these while earning houses and cars to finish with the most life points at the end of the game. It gives a sense of living in the real world for younger players but the money system is so high that no one really grasps a true understanding but it is very fun and can change every game no matter how well you think you can play a bad roll and somme bad cards can keep you out of the running and let others come out on top. 5Love the game, just not this copyI love this game, but was sad when this copy arrivrd. The Life pod display doesn't work and the game arrived with a fair amount of water damage. For being listed as collectable and like new, it was in no shape to be called either. 1Better than the original LifeI played the traditional Life board game years ago and remember it was quite tedious to get through the entire game. The updated version with the computer module is much more fun. Each game is variable and you can choose different paths at anytime. The length of game varies too (you select the timing) and you quickly learn what you need to win the game -- shorter durations require Life Points; longer games require mucho dinero. My kids and I have a blast with it and they have learned much while have loads of fun. I had also purchased them Animal Planet Monopoly board game and have to say that was quite boring (and harder to follow) than the Life game. 5Life with a Twist!This game is sadly out of production. I had trouble finding it at a reasonable price--and then missed the seller's description that one of the "debit" cards was missing! I have only played the game once, using a borrowed set. I loved it and wanted it for my board game collection. Since the set I have only has three cards, I have yet to play it again (as usually our game night consists of my husband and I and another couple). I will be looking for another card on eBay.I am a fan of the classic Life game. If you are not a fan, I do not know that this game will change your mind. There are different parts of the game for different parts of "Life" (Live It, Love It, etc.), which is a change from the original game. The best part of Life Twists and Turns is the LIFEPod debit card machine that keeps track of your money, careers, houses, family--everything. Now you don't have to spend half of the game time counting and handing out money and little pink and blue colored pegs (that ALWAYS fall out).If you love Life, I recommend this game. Hope you can find one! 5Best Family Game!!!Why is this no longer made?! What a great game. Got this for my 28-year old son and his 7-year old daughter LOVES playing this with us. Very easy to play and enjoyed. Keeps all involed with the game and it is paced well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who can find it at a reasonable price. I paid $100 based on my son's recommendation and although I thought it was way too much at the time, I honestly think in the 1 day we have had it, that it was money so well spent. Game says for 9+; however, we play board games all of the time and my granddaughter has not had any problems understanding or playing after the first 4 or 5 turns. It is also great to have her reading the Life Cards aloud! 5Great GAME, I REAPEAT GAMEI had the previous life game and loved it, so once I figured out that they had a new one I just had to have it. It was very easy to figure out. All you have to do is READ THE DIRECTIONS!!!!!!! At first when I saw the reviews about it being almost impossible to figure out, I was scared. But it was very easy to figure out. The game even includes induvidual life pod reference cards, which are great for new-comers. So, if you read all those reviews about how hard it is please don't believe them, you'll be missing out on a great game. The next factor that many pople have critized about is the fact that Hasbro has teamed up with Visa, but is JUST A GAME, and the credit cards are fun for little kids, who feel a sense of responsiblility. So, do you really care about a little logo that does not make any difference? Another thing I like about this game is the fact that you get promoted. This allows for a race to get to the best salary the quickest. It is fun to get to the 2,000,000 dollar sallary and then have 8 kids, just for the fun of it. The ability to move around freely is also fun. Many people I play with never get promoted and have as many kids as they can. This puts them into debt, and it is hilarous for them to try to get out of it on the last ten turns. Although that does have problems too. If you are actually tring to win here is what you basically do;1. Choose a job with no degree required2. Go to earn it until you are at the final promotion3. Go into live it/love it and get cars, houses, kids or go on trips until the game is over After a while this gets very boring if you play it too much. So basically1. Directions are easy to follow2. Hasbro and Visa teaming up does not matter3. Gets boring if you play it too much4. Fun if you do not try to win I hope this review was helpful. Good Bye hopfully the next owner of this game. 4
