One of my favorite board games growing up was the Game of Life.  I loved playing this game with my sister and parents.  My kids also love playing the game so I knew the new APP friendly version would be a hit for sure for my kids.

My kids actually loved this version more than the traditional one.  Partly I think because of the funny video clips from America's Funnies Vidoes.  They also loved the fact that you can customized your "peg."  I really enjoyed this part too.  I also have to say that I love the fact that the iPad is the wheel you spin too.  I use to get so aggravated at the spinner from the original game.  It never wanted to stay in its place. 

The game has become a family favorite with my family and is a great addition to our Family Game Night.  I recommend it to any family who loves games and of course apps.  Just be sure to remember that you have to have an iPad to play.  The retail price of the game is $24.99 which is a great price . You can check out this list of retailers so you can purchase your own copy of the game today!
