The rules are fairly simple... you play cards from your five card hand and try to tell a little story to go along with what cards you play in your Life "story". There are eight 10+ years cards hidden in the four decks you draw from (wealth, career, family and adventure) and when six of those have been discovered the game is over. You tally up your points and whoever has the most points in their "life" wins. The real fun in the game hinges on your imagination. It is rather bland unless you get into it and tell crazy stories about why you are suing the other player for one of their cards or why you are exchanging pets with them. I managed to get several ocean themed cards one game and told a story about how my family had to move out of their Lighthouse and into a Beach house because there were too many ghosts, and the swimming pool was added (one of the home improvement cards) because there were too many sharks in the ocean. They got a kick out of that... and one of my daughters begins her turn each time with "You know what's new in OUR family?" and then with giggles adds "we just went to YOUR favorite rock concert Mommy, bet you wish you were in our family" as she plays the headline rock concert cards.Read more ›
First of all, the card game is not as good as the board game; however, if you are looking for a somewhat quick game that you can play with your kids that has some of the same fun features of Life then buy this. As an adult, I bought this game due to the fact that I work with kids as a counselor. I wanted to find something fun in which I could start teaching the importance of having goals and dreaming about the future. This card game allowed me to get rid of the many pieces of a board game and just focus on the message in a fun way. The teens I played it with enjoyed it. After they laid out their story in front of them card by card, at the end they had a life they could be proud of overall. It led to many discussions about current choices and what one must do to be successful. To tell you the truth, this is a perfect parenting game. And if it's just kids playing, its always fun to dream!
Game Play: Each player starts with a mix of cards fom 4 categories - Career, Wealth, Adventure, and Family. Using one card per round, players begin to paint a picture of their life story. The game continues until 60 years have passed in the storyline (10 years passes everytime someone draws a +10 card). There are some cards that allow you to affect the other players' life stories. The story that you tell about your life events as you place each card is entirely up to you - the more you are willing to embellish upon the event or scenario, the more fun it is for the other players.
Pros: Fun to stretch the imagination; great for those who love to make up stories; easy to setup and clean up; easy to play while traveling.
Cons: Not as quick to play as other card games, this can stretch out for a while; players can get stuck without much to do if they hold a lot of cards with prerequisites (such as adventure cards that require a passport - I went 10 rounds pulling only adventure cards and never found a passport).
This game is more fun with 3-4 people as you'll have fun listening to the stories that other people come up with and have more time to formulate your own thoughts.

The directions are horrible. Game isn't as much fun as I thought it would be. Could be fun for small children to practice making up stories. Not worth it.Published 13 days ago by Tess V.

Bought three card games recently. The best was Exploding Kittens, closely followed by Monopoly Deal. Life Adventures comes in a distant third.Published 2 months ago by bman
Lots of fun for the family to play. Even when the adults stay up with a glass of wine it's even funner because we come up with the most hilarious Life stories. A must-have!Published 3 months ago by Susan L Heenan
