What It IsSince debuting in the 1960s, The Game of Life has been a family game night staple, so popular in fact that it is part of the permanent collection of the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Institution. Families have had fun carrying out life's little adventures by placing pink and blue peg people in cars while traveling a 3-D game board and making life decisions on the way to "retirement."
This year the game celebrates its 50th anniversary and to celebrate this milestone, Hasbro is releasing a special edition of the classic game complete with golden accents and Life coins to take the fun to a new level. The essential gameplay is the same as it's always been, but the new edition includes special Life coins that encourage players to have real-life discussions inspired by the decisions players must make to progress in the game, such as starting a family or embarking on a new career. (When the game is over look for a special reward if you have a Life coin in your possession.) With a spin of the golden wheel, players will experience the ups and downs of Life. The game is for two to six players.
