Life: History and Miscellaneous Details
The board game, Life, was originally created by Milton Bradley in 1860. The modern version of the game was released for the first time in 1960, and it has been going strong ever since. As you can imagine, any game that has been around for this long has to be special. Even though many changes have been made over the years, Life is still one of the most popular board games to this day.
The game of Life can be played by anywhere from two to six players. The age range for players is nine and up. This makes it a perfect board game for families as well as couples who are interested in spending time together.
Many re-publishes in the history of the Life game have taken place since 1860. The years for these updates include 1866, 1959, 1961, 1978, 1985, 1992, and 2005. The main reason for these updates is quite simple. As times change, so does the way that people live their life. And since that is what Life is all about, it only makes sense that these changes continue to be made.
The most current version of the game was released in 2005 after a few minor updates. These changes were made in order to make the game of Life more realistic in today’s day and age.
Several of the most recent updates include:
1. More debt for players who start off on the college path. Whereas this used to be $40,000, the most recent update puts players at $100,000.
2. Life tile ranges were decreased to $10,000 to $50,000 from $50,000 to $250,000. This was meant to make sure that the poorest player did not come from behind at the end when the tiles were flipped over.
The game of Life has changed a lot since 1860. Although the current version of the game is up to date with modern times, there is a good chance that minor revisions will take place in the next few years to come. For a game that is called “Life” it is necessary to make sure that every last detail and rule fits in with current times.
