Description Edit | History

This is the card game version of "The Game of Life". There are four types of cards: Career cards, Student/Married cards, Early Life cards, and Later Life Cards. First you must draw a Career card. You may also choose to attend college which allows you to pick a higher paying career, but you also lose three turns. Your Career card lists how much time and money you can spend on each turn. On your turn, you may play cards from your hand, but only if you have enough time or money to pay for them (some cards, like "Lucky Lottery" allow you to add your two scores together). The cards you play feature life goals that are worth points. You may also get married and have children which costs you time but earns you bonus points. When the Early Life cards are used up, play proceeds with the Later Life cards. This deck also has the Letter cards "L" "I" "F" and "E", and when all four of these cards are drawn the game ends. The players add up their scores and the one with the highest point total wins.
