The Game of Life zAPPed - A new take on a classic

Growing up I loved the Game of Life and it has come a long way over the years. Currently in our house we have the original version, an electronic version and a SpongeBob version. Thanks to Hasbro we have now added THE GAME OF LIFE zAPPed edition.  

With THE GAME OF LIFE zAPPed edition, you can enjoy a whole new way to play! Add your iPad to the unique gameboard for a truly interactive family experience. The free app brings your game to life as you move around the board. You still get to move your car from space to space and select your path to retirement, but now you spin, get paid, sue other players and make important decisions all on your iPad. Don’t want to be just a plain peg? Go ahead and customize your peg character and add a peg-sessory!

Big J loves that she can give her "peg" crazy hair and funny accessories like glasses or purses. She also loves that when you land on certain spaces you unlock more than 100 clips from America's Funniest Home Videos which needless to say are hilarious, especially when you are 5!

My favorite thing about the game, except for the fact that The Game of Life is my favorite is that there are less pieces to lose. You no longer have the buildings, bridges and spinners to put together. The APP also keeps track of you job, house and life tiles for you. Meaning you no longer have to worry about losing or handing out those cards.

THE GAME OF LIFE zAPPed will be on our top list of board games for years to come.
