I recently had the amazing opportunity to review Hasbro’s THE GAME OF LIFE: ZAPPed Edition! With THE GAME OF LIFE: ZAPPed Edition, you can enjoy the classic Game of Life in a whole new new way. This version of the game connects to your iPad and allows for an interactive experience while you play! That’s right folks, the plastic spinning wheel is gone and the iPad is in! I think this is such a cool idea and my family and I love it! Again you must own an iPad to use this board game. Check out these videos of the app in action.
Here is what it looks like when you set it up on the Ipad.
And this is the App in action.
Don’t worry all you traditional board gamers, the game still comes with an actual board and game pieces in both pink and blue for boys and girls
You can see everything included in the game box below.
The free app really takes this game to a whole new level, since it not only provides a new means to play the game, but it also provides a fun visual aspect to the game as well. When you play you still manually push your car around the game board and you are still inserting the little girl or boy small pegs into the cars you choose to play with. You still push them around the board and play the game of life. Only with the zapped edition, as you play with the app and land on certain spaces you actually also unlock clips from America’s Funniest Home Videos. You also tap your iPad screen to spin the wheel to determine spaces and turns. You also have an avatar and digital car on the iPad that go along with your game pieces.
If you love the GAME OF LIFE you will love this edition of the game. It’s the Game of Life reloaded for 2012! This game retails for about $24.99 and includes the gameboard, 4 car movers, 52 pegs, money pack, 4 rubber pads, and Quick Start Guide. iPad is of course not included.
My family and I loved this updated version of the game and the app is such a fun edition! We wish all our board games were zapped! I highly recommend you get it for your family! It’s the perfect edition to your family game night!
