Getting a Life!



The Game of Life is a board game was originally created in 1860 by Milton Bradley, as The Checkered Game of Life. The games main goal is to simulate a person’s travels through his or her life from college to retirement; with jobs, marriage, and possible children along the way.  The Game of Life was also America’s first popular parlor game. In 1960, 100 years later, Reuben Klamer and Art Linkletter created the modern version of the game.


The game is fairly easy to begin, however, there are key things that you need to determine. You need to find out who is going first. To do this, let everyone spin the wheel. After everyone has spun the wheel, the person with the highest spin goes first. The next thing that you need to figure out who is going to be the banker. There is really no way to determine this. I would choose a person that is good at calculating money without a calculator.


My experience

I don’t get to play this game a much as I want to. I normally if I want to play a  game I play the version that I have on my IPad. This is probably on my top five favorite board games. I would play it more often if I had more people to play it with. Now, here’s a question for you guys. do you want me to make a list of my top favorite board game or do you want another blog like this?
