My lot do love a good board game, they have always enjoyed most that I place on the table and in our back room we have a shelf full of them, that are played regularly. A good night in for us is a quality board game or sometimes we play Bingo and hand out small prizes for winning cards.
When my eldest two kids were smaller (they are 25 & 26 now) one of their favorites was Hasbro's 'Game of Life' and recently we were asked by Hasbro to review one of their games and immediately I thought of this game. My girls were delighted to spend a family night in with the game and they all thoroughly enjoyed it. Their ages range from 10 - 20 years so it was great to have some entertainment that they could all enjoy together.
The idea of the game is to choose your path in life, your career or family path, deciding how many kids you'll have or will you choose college and aim for a high paid job. You could write a book or sail around the world. The choice is yours.
Big thumbs up from The Syders. We highly recommend the 'Game of Life' for the whole family. Available from Tesco Direct, Argos, Entertainer and Very, priced around £20.
