1. Board Game: The Game of Life [Average Rating:4.04 Overall Rank:10974]
United States

The Game of Life is one of two games I've ranked with a 1 (the other is Uno Stacko). Sure, the gameplay blows, it's roll and move, and it doesn't require any real, you know... thinking or decision making.

But... it is quite easy to buy. It doesn't require a trip to the hole-in-wall game store downtown to buy a fancy-pants euro game. You can probably buy it at Walmart and its a regular at second-hand shops.

So... it's not entirely all bad.

The plastic pieces didn't have any sharp edges, so I got thru the game uninjured.

This is probably a fine game, it just didn't seem to work for two players. Then I played it with three players, and it was a little better, but I still don't like it. It is an investment game, and I just have no skill at and do not like investment games. Based on my experience with the three-player game, I could raise it to a 3 rating.

Acacia was so excited when I brought this home for her (since she always sees it in Target) and after the first play, I knew it was one of the worst games I had ever touched. Seriously painful! I mentioned to my wife that I would probably just bring it back (got it at Goodwill) and my daughter overheard me and started sobbing....

"Daaaaaaaaaaad, you can't bring back the caterpillar game. You bought it special for meeeeeeeeeee!!!! It's special, right, dad?!?!?!?!"

....and on and on and on. When I said that daddy was talking about a different game (damnit....insert foot in mouth) she smiled her beautiful ear-to-ear grin and jumped for joy. So......in conclusion.....

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Game further solidifies the love my daughter has for me.

But since my mother isn't here, I'll give it a whirl.

The game box is a cube. That's kind of cool. If you were ever playing with your Star Trek toys and needed a Borg ship, this would come in handy.

Any game that over-promotes itself by excessive use of exclamation marks and pictures of people looking happy while playing a game must be horrible. This game doesn't have pictures of people looking happy, they look dead and famished. It must be worse than horrible.

On the upswing, if you're determined to play Zombies!!! one look at the rules will make you feel like both a good writer and a mediocre game designer.

I recommend taking Zombies!!! with you when trying to pick up chicks so that you can look good in comparison.

Well, in several editions, it has nice bits.
It makes a decent board for playing risk, too.

Play it with those annoying jerks, and backstab them all in the name of playing it right, and they will probably take it personal enough to avoid you for months.

It is possible it is just the people I played it with at the time. I might have unfairly judged it since I only played it twice. Maybe I should actually play the game with real money.

To the best of my knowledge, no one has ever been murdered while playing a game of Fluxx. That's more than you can say about Bridge, Chess, or Poker.

Of course, if any homicides were ever reported during the playing of this game and I was the investigating detective, the first theory I would propose would be suicide.
