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 ›
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.
After going through the entire deck and looking at each picture we determined that the symbols mean the following.
The house is for a home
The car means you need to own a car
The plane means you need to own a plane
The boat means you need to own a boat
The ring means you need a wedding
The booklet with an atom stmbol on the front means you need a passport
The rectangular one with a ribon coming down from the middle means you need a diploma
Once we figured that out the game was pretty quick and easy but the amount of effort and time it took to get all the instructions down was very frustrating. You would think that hasbro would at least have a key available on their website. They don't even have a help or faq section there.
