The board and pieces are cheaply made and do not fit well together.

I'm talking about the pointy piece of plastic makes contact with the number wheel every time it goes around.

My criticism is not of the Game of Life, but rather this "vintage" wooden box edition.

I found this game at Target and I thought it was such a great idea so I bought it. When I got it home, I tried to put it all together, come to find out the pieces were to big for the board or didnt fit right. The board wouldnt close all the way when you put in the wheel so we had to play with a big split in the board. The cars holes were too small and wouldnt hold the people so they kept falling out every time you would move the piece. The pieces are cheaply made,not like the orginal game.

I think the set is awesome but I would only buy the ones that you dont have to put together

Like one of the other reviewers, I saw this at Target, and since I remembered playing as a kid, I wanted to share that fun with my 9 & 10 year old who have never played. I remember whiling away the hours with my sibs playing this game and it was loads of fun, especially when we would make up our own rules for playing the market! But the way this so called vintage game is constructed, it's an insult to its predecessor. First of all, the pieces aren't formed correctly so they don't all fit properly. Then, when I tried snap in the number wheel, (just like the other reviewer), there was a big gap in the board. I love this game so much, that I was willing to overlook that until I was spinning the number wheel and trying to "loosen" it up, the clicker (?) came right off! (I'm talking about the pointy piece of plastic makes contact with the number wheel every time it goes around.) That was the last straw. I'm taking it back and I'm getting a good old fashioned one. BTW, it looks like you would have to construct and consequently de-construct the whole game every time in order to get it back into it's original box. Well, based on the way they built this thing, it's apparent they're not expecting you to play it alot, anyway. Vintage-Shmintage.

I've never played LIFE before and I got the vintage edition because I had bought the SORRY vintage edition earlier and had thoroughly enjoyed it. But the pieces don't fit and the spinner is ridiculously hard to work one reason being it doesn't fit on the board, making it uneven. And the little people in the cars fall out easily as well. Like I said, I've never played this game before, so I have never owned another board to compare this to. However, considering a lot of people have had the same problem, I don't think I'm too far off base.

This must of been redone or something, because i just bought this game and its perfect. The pieces all fit well and its so much fun! a lot better then the redesigned games. Relive your childhood with this!

As for the other reviews i really didn't see anything that fit bad. Unless MB changed it or I'm just smarter lol

This is not a reproduction of the original Game of Life from 1960. It reminds me of the 1977/1978 version I played as a kid. Still a great game, and I love making off side bets. Enjoy.

Verified Purchase
I purchased this vintage wood book edition of LIFE for my husband who has been collecting wood board games. He especially wanted this vintage edition because of the original rules of the game. If you're old enough to remember, the original rules has a different 'value' for boy children than girl children. The new rules of the game are more politically correct. Regardless, it was the perfect holiday present for my husband to complete his collection.

By Sara Bell on December 17, 2013
I love the look of the wooden box and I didn't get one that is shoddy like some of the other reviewers, but my main problem is that in this version of the game it seems like whoever has the highest salary wins period. In other versions I've played there are enough checks that anyone can win but in this one it seems like the outcome is set from the beginning.
