Customizable Game of Life

Customizable Game of Life: Love It or Leave It?

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Game of Life in Japan, themed boards starting with the Bridal version, will be introduced over the course of the year. Customizing allows you to put your picture on the box and and decide what 56 of the 99 boxes on the board say.

Example:
"Taro buys an engagement ring for Hanako. Pay $50,000."
"Taro and Hanako have twins. Collect $1,000."
"Taro cheats on Hanako with his hot young secretary. Pay $2,000 for an apology ring."
"Hanako leaves Taro, and takes all his bank funds with her. Taro pays Hanako $100,000."

The board game starring you takes a month and a half to make and costs about $350. From what I gather the games will only be available in Japan, but would you jump on it if it were accessible?

No way, not for $350. "Taro cheats on Hanako with his hot young secretary. Pay $2,000 for an apology ring." Grr. It's irrational, but it would really irritate me to see my name and my boyfriend's name in that sentence.

I LOVE this! Life was one of my favorite games growing up and I would love to own a personalized version. I agree that this would make a fab wedding gift!

it's not even the price tag that keeps me away - i just think that it's a bit over the top

stuff like "Taro cheats on Hanako with his hot young secretary. Pay $2,000 for an apology ring." and "Hanako leaves Taro, and takes all his bank funds with her. Taro pays Hanako $100,000." makes it sound like it'd be a TERRIBLE wedding gift! Who wants to see those potential and disastrous "what-ifs" in your life together?

pretty much agree with everyone. the price tag should come down, even the customizable monopoly *if i remember right* wasn't that much.

i thought it'd be more customizable for that much money. i hate how it is so conservative. i don't want to get married or have kids so i think those things on the board are sucky.

Really cool idea but it's a little overpriced.

too pricey for me, would rather just play 19.99 version and pretend that it was customized to me.

Monopoly has something like this only I don't think it is $350. I would LOVE a create your own game of life but I don't love the price tag.
