Product Description

Product Description

The classic board game of LIFE takes on a few new twists and turns in this all-new updated version.

Amazon.com

The Game of Life: Twists and Turns puts a new and modern spin on Hasbro's classic family board game. It is a game of choices, where players can "test drive" different lifestyles, take their chances and experience the twists and turns of real life. Jobs, money, marriage, children and all sorts of unexpected events -- just like real life, it's all here! Recommended for ages 8 and up, there are a thousand different ways to play this game, and no two games will ever be the same.

Updating a Classic
Like the classic version of the Game of Life, the Game of Life: Twists and Turns is based around real-life events. You'll choose a profession at the beginning of the game, and roll the dice to progress along the board. As you progress, you'll encounter all sorts of real-life events (injected with a hefty dose of humor, of course), including marriage, houses, cars and family matters. You'll essentially live real life and make life-defining decisions, but without having to live with the consequences.

However, Twists and Turns has a number of updates in store. Not only does it offer far more choices and possibilities than the original, it also has a number of new technical features that both longtime fans and newly-introduced players will appreciate greatly. The game now features a "LIFEPod," which helps players keep track of time and manage their careers, houses, cars and families with the touch of the button. The high-tech interface adds loads of fun to the game. The innovations don't stop there: each player now gets their very own Visa credit card, which they can use to spend. This not only puts a fresh modern twist on the game, but it also could possibly teach younger players about credit card responsibility at an early age. This gives educational value to an already quirky and fun game.



An updated classic game, this version of Life features a LIFEPod to help keep track of players' careers, houses, cars, and families.

Firstly, I would say that the age rating (9+) is appropriate for this game. We have played it several times and found it enjoyable each time.

How the game is played:

The lifepod and Visa DEBIT cards are a real addition to the game. I highlight the word debit because some people seem to be voicing their concerns that this game is Visa's way of getting children hooked on credit cards at a young age. I do not have a credit card, but I do have a debit card for several reasons, primarily because the world is becoming more electronic and sometimes you need a debit card (for example, ordering something off Amazon.) Another thing that may remove some worries is that there is a penalty for being in debt in the game. Every time you spin and you are in debt you get 10% of your total amount taken away. (In a way this discourages debt because you can easily lose the game this way.)

How the Game is Played:

One of the most fun features of this game is that all players do not have to take the same "Life path." There are 4 paths you can choose to start on (although you can move between all 4 throughout the game) learn it, earn it, live it, and love it.

The lifepod records everything (except for you occupation although it does keep your salary) and you have a "scorecard" which really functions only to have something to clip your "Occupation" card to.

We love the lifepod as it makes the game fun, less messy, and interesting. Each turn you put your visa debit card into the lifepod and press spin.

The goal of the game is to get the most life points. (Money, assets, children, homes, etc... are turned into lifepoints at the end of the game.)

Learn it is the area of the bored where you can get a degree and (if you desire) a PhD.

I got this game yesterday. I had always enjoyed playing the older version when I was a kid. This one is much more fun because the computer does all the score keeping and there is no paper money and itty bitty "People" pegs that get lost etc. You just put your card in the machine and it does all the calculations and when the game is over it tallies the score and lets you know who won!

Also you can determine how many "years" or turns everyone gets when you start. SO, if you want a quick game you just put in a couple of years and off you go. If you want to play all day you can put in 99 years and be sure the schedule some restroom breaks. LOL... as long as you don't turn off the computer it picks up where you leave off if you need to take a break.

There are very few things you need to keep track of so it doesn't take as long as the old version did. It teaches credit and smart buying habits if you take the time to discuss the implications of the choices that come along the route.

Well worth the money and I think that anyone who enjoys board games would love to play this one. Best part for me is the lack of so many parts and the need for a banker and shuffeling all that goofey paper money around.

Try it you'll like it!!!

This version of Life is a fantastic upgrade to the old, manual version. My 11-year old daughter loves the game especially because of the credit card use! She has already learned how some choices can impact our lives forever; for good or for bad. I have also truly enjoyed the game; we've played almost every day since Christmas. You can choose the length of the game, change occupations, change routes all adding up to a different game each time you play. I highly recommend it!

I played this with several adults (we did couples teams) and it was so much fun! This is definitely a great update to a classic and I agree that it could teach children credit card responsibility (or even some adults too!) if presented the proper way.

This game was a BLAST!!!My Kids and I really enjoyed playing it. One of the advantages of this game is that you can choose how long you want this game to last. On the downside..the directions can be a bit confusing BUT all in all.. This was an AWESOME game!!

I,too, was wondering why this product was selling for almost $60 on here. Just 3 weeks ago, it was only $28. It is one of those situations where as soon as the item becomes popular, the prices go up. This game is hard to find ON-LINE. Call your local stores. I got this game today at Target for $22.00! Do not pay double the price or more without shopping first! Just wanted to let people know! Happy Holidays!

We played this game with my 9 year old, and 6 year old. They both caught right on with no problems! My 75 year old mother even got it! We had it at my daughter's sleepover, and the 10 year old girls there loved it, and couldn't leave it alone. Our family highly recommends this game!

The electronic banking feature in this game does make it a lot easier and more convenient to play. Furthermore, the gameplay is much more fast-paced than the original Life. However, the game is not well thought out - you are absolutely limited to four players (no more), the jobs that earn the most money in the game require no degree (which can be very unfair), and worst of all - the power switch on the life pod is very inconveniently located, making it completely possible that when someone is handed the pod for their turn, they can easily turn it off, thus ending the game.
