Classic games as copyrighted properties are bought and sold by companies like anything else. Typically, when a classic game is re-published by a new company, they cut corners in production to make it cheaper, and in worst-case scenarios, they decide to change the rules and mess with basic game play. This is the 2015 edition of The Game of Life, which has undergone a few updates. All the cool, elevated pathways are gone, and the card functions have changed, but if you draw “Win a Skateboarding Competition” you can “show everyone your moves” and collect 100k. Is that X-games or Street League money?
There’s a Minions edition of the Game of Life that doesn’t really resemble the classic gameplay at all, and seems to take about 5 minutes to complete. This version is pretty close to the original Game of Life, at least as close as I can remember since I haven’t played the classic in decades. I love the game Risk, but don’t bother buy-in the new Hasbro edition with the plastic men. It’s cheaply made and they changed the game play.
Wha’s that? Oh yeah… skateboarding. From the looks of the card, you must have won in the Masters division.
