Get Lucky With The Game of Life!

 The original name of the game - as designed by Milton Bradley - was "The Checkered Game of Life".  Bradley would eventually revolutionize the toy and game industry, creating a company specializing in the development of board games.  It was the very first game ever designed by Bradley, but most definitely not the last.  At the end of the game, the player with the most points would have the best life possible, and they would be declared the victor of the game.  You most certainly would never find that space in The Game of  Anyway, as you'll notice, there's no dice for this game. toys, puzzles, and video games, so I thought that I would pick a game. For one, the players who were in control could actually drive around a realistic looking game board (the board representing a gigantic highway). One time, I was very excited to get the deed to the most expensive mansion in the entire game, and I think my excitement was so great that I forgot to buy homeowner's insurance. Over the course of the game, you would also have to buy a house (some were more expensive than others), and you might also consider buying home and auto insurance as well (you never know when a tree will crash through the roof of your home). The way the game worked was that each time a person landed on a success space, they would receive 100 points.  Just taking a look at the game board, certainly there are all sorts of good things that can happen.  The goal of the game was to reach the retirement square, in which a player would be awarded an additional 50 points.  "The Checkered Game of Life" sold upwards of 45,000 copies by the end of its first year of production. The game of life is one that is filled with many.  Lost ALL of my money, but surprisingly I won the game because for each child you have, you received a playing pieces happens to be green, and the main object of the game.  These little pegs represented you and the family that you would end up building as the game progressed.  I ended the game with more children than Jon and Kate Gosselin.  I had to actually use a second car token to keep all nine of my babies with me.  To add insult to injury, only I would land on the college for your kids space with nine children. If you just went off to work, you would have no loans to pay back, and you would automatically collect money as you passed the green "Pay Day" squares that would pop up randomly on your journey.  And if you landed on a space where you got married and had a child, you would add more pegs to your car.  Whatever the side the teetotum landed on, that was the number of spaces that a player could move. Another time, on another playthrough, I remember that no matter what I spun, I kept landing on the "It's a boy", "It's a girl", "Twins", "Adopt a child" spaces. is to make as much green as possible while living your life the best.  So when my home actually gets destroyed on my journey, I ended up nearly losing all of my money to make the repairs.  And there were little plastic pegs in light blue and light pink that you could put inside of the cars.  Players would spin the device around, and it would land on a numbered side. red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and white (in newer versions, the white car was repainted pink or purple).  If they landed on a bad space, I'm only guessing that points were taken away.  The superstar had more fun squares than any other occupation, but a police officer could collect money from any player who spun a ten on the wheel (equivalent to a speeding ticket). Sometimes exciting things happen in your life,. Your goal was to live the best life possible. Now, you might think that the career you choose is pointless because the salary card was the only real thing that mattered.

When and why was the name of the game Snakes and Ladders, changed to Chutes snd Ladders?

The Original game, by the name of Snakes and Ladders, was deemed immoral and satanic by puritanical Americans. Therefore, the name was changed to Chutes and Ladders for release in the United States by Milton Bradley.

Recommended games for teaching kids Geography?

I was hoping to get some references for good, quality games that teach geography to kids. I have a 6 1/2 year old who will be entering 1st grade this coming fall, but I want to get him started on at least the geography of the United States with maybe a little history thrown in. Any format will do - PC, board games, workbooks, etc.

Milton Bradley makes a game called The Game of the States. It is brilliant. I learned where the states are, their capitals and their primary industries and cash crops from the Game of the States. It was a board game when I was kid - a long time ago. There may be a PC version of it now. You will probably have to order it online because I haven't seen it in stores in a gazillion years.

    Describe this Game Beginning with G. Great Group Game.

    Each player is given a card with a list of twelve categories on it. The 20 sided die is rolled, and the game is on. Now you must complete your list of categories with whatever letter came up with the roll of the die. And, just to make it more challenging, if you come up with the same answer as another player, you both must cross the answer off your list.It may seem easy now, but believe me, it's hard when the time comes. You have 3 minutes to fill in 12 categories, so it's not the time. I find my mind often draws a blank when first presented with the lists, but if I go through it filling in the easy answers first, I can often fill in some of the harder ones later.Officially, the game is for 2 to 6 players, so the title of my review should have been great small group game. But small messes up my alliteration. Seriously, I did play this once in a large group, and we just played with several teams instead of the traditional individual players.This is a fun way to... 5/5 0, December 16, 2003
