Life is like a sandcastle something beautiful here for awhile & then gone, but the impression it makes on others can last forever.

Sweepstakes HASBRO The Game Of Life

Thanks to our wonderful sponsor for providing my family The Game of Life to review and giveaway. Links in this post will carry you to Hasbro to learn more about this game and more family fun games. Would you believe I'd never played The Game of Life before. True this game takes a little work and time to get through. My 7 year caught on very quickly with the guidance of my husband helping him through. He was laughing saying he wanted a whole car full of babies. 

Like most children they enjoyed spinning the spinner. Must say spin slower when your dots on there or they go flying. Make sure you have ample time when you start to play, you need patience for beginners.  

Just like real life there is many twist and turns. Money comes and money goes, families expand and bills are due. Basically you want to be the richest person retiring at the end of the game. We had a great time playing The Game of Life.
Sponsor info: Age: 8+; Players: 2-4; Available: Now; Approximate Retail Price: $19.99
Where will your choices take you? You made it through high school, so now what’s next? Go to college or start a career – it’s your choice. Think the family life is for you? Take that path and see how many kids you’ll have! Will you venture down the risky road where fortunes can be won…and lost? Do whatever it takes to retire in style with the most wealth at the end of the game. Spin the wheel of fate and take a drive along the twisting roads families have enjoyed for more than 50 years! Do good deeds as you go through the game to earn Life Tiles and more money down the road!

When I was a kid the only board game we had for a long time was Life. We used to play it often. I would love to win this for my son to play.

I had this game when I was a kid. I use to like to fill the car with kids and when I'd run out of space I would lay them sideways and pile them on top of each other.

When I was a child my favorite game was Clue. Now I'm a Scrabble fan.

I used to love playing Life with my neighbors. I loved adding those little blue and pink pegs to the cars.

My best friend had LIFE on the computer and we would play it nonstop! Always so much fun :)

Somehow whenever I play life I ALWAYS get twins. It's a bit nerve-wrecking because my dad is a twin and now everyone thinks I will have twins in real life!

I have never ever played Life before! Can you believe that?

We have family game night several nights a week. Right now we are hooked on Uno Attack.

This is great. Such a classic game coming back to Life! I remember this always being in our game closet growing up, but dont recall ever playing it. We never had game night with our family. Most games were for my 4 brothers and I to entertain ourselves. I think it would be great to teach the kids a little bit about Life itself and have a family game night of fun. Thank you for opening this opportunity up for us.

Me and my fiance love game night! Last weekend, we had the Olympic curling on while we were playing a mini version of curling we have! It was fun!
