Quick verdict

This is not your mother’s Game of Life. In The Game of Life: Twists & Turns, no longer is your only choice whether to go to college or not. You don’t follow the same predetermined roads game after game like you did in the original Life.

The game and gameplay

The Game of Life: Twists & Turns looks very different compared to its non-flashy predecessor.

First of all, in lieu or making your way all the way through the board from start to finish, you get to decide how long you will play.

You enter the number of “years” (turns!) your group wants to play in the game’s LIFEPod and the device keeps track of the turns automatically.

Everyone starts with a strikingly unrealistic salary of $5,000 a year (or turn, if you still haven’t caught on to the gamespeak). On your turn, you may navigate your skateboard (yes, you read that right) along any of the four paths you please: Love It!, Live It!, Earn It!, or Learn It!

You may even choose to refresh your course and warp to another category’s start space at the beginning of a turn. If you land on a blank space, a Life card is drawn (the equivalent to the former game’s tiles), and the instructions are followed.

Perhaps you’ll invent a board game that someone will write about on Boardgame Beast and score $900,000, or get into a ski accident and lose 300 Life Points.
