That’s Life

The Game of Life

I’m a game snob. I like games that take hours to play, call for deep strategies and have obscure themes. Most of our games are European. So when I broke out a copy of The Game of Life I picked up at Hasbro’s HQ, I was surprised how much we all enjoyed playing. It’s by no means perfect. The components are cheap. Nettie doesn’t like the amount of luck involved. Peabody gets frustrated late in the game if it’s clear that he has no chance of winning (as his debt piles up). But even with all of this we eagerly come back to Life for its simple and fast gameplay, constant interaction between players and the overall silly experience of seeing a life unfold in less than an hour.
