Playing the Game of Life on our Snow Day {Giveaway!}


For the first time in four years it snowed. Well it kind of snowed. It really did ice! The kids had 2 full days off and 2 half days off so we had a lot of time on our hands to play games!


Here is a pic of our little snow…the kids really tried to make something from it. ha!

The game we played the most was the Game of Life. It arrived on our doorstop at the perfect time and the boys couldn’t wait to set it up. They have played the game once or twice before….an old Simpsons version that we found in my dad’s basement during a visit to see him. They thought it was SO COOL to get a job, buy a house, and get paid!

This version was new…and a little different. I have to tell you that I really liked it! It was easier and more kid friendly.


Gone is the confusing insurance. Instead there are Action Cards and this is really what keeps the game interesting and makes us giggle! Here are a couple of examples…

Cook perfect pancakes! All shout out your favorite pancakes topping and take turns to spin for money.

Walk the catwalk! Pick an opponent and strike a pose.

Fired for snoozing on the job! Return your Career Card.

It was super funny to hear my boys talk about Kids. O’Bear didn’t want any (ha ha!) and C’Man ended up with two sets of twins! Hope he lives near his mother to help out. 🙂

We had a great day ~ snow and all!
