Kidzworld reviews The Game of Life: Twists & Turns!

Life is full of scary twists and turns, so before you jump into the real world, why not test the waters by playing The Game of Life: Twists & Turns? You'll get to experience life without actually dealing with any of the consequences! This updated version of the classic board game is about makin' a series of life choices while earnin' money, but it's no longer just about having a nine-to-five job, getting hitched and buying a house with a white picket fence. The Game of Life: Twists & Turns is split into four sections - Live It (go traveling and experience one adventure after another), Learn It (get an education), Earn It (get a job and try to get rich quick), or Love It (spend time with your friends and family) - so you can test drive different lifestyles to figure out which one's best suited for you! You'll have many more options to pursue your goals, whether it's skydiving, going to chef school, landing a job on Wall Street, or getting married to the guy/girl of your dreams! Another change is that you'll now be playing with Visa credit cards instead of play money, and an electronic gadget called the LIFEpod will automatically keep track of your points and money. The player who accumulates the most "life points," which is a combination of money and life experience, wins The Game of Life!

    I know, but you can say the name such as "I just got this game from GameStop." THAT'S what I meant. If you can do it in comments, why can't you do it here?
