The Family Guide to THE GAME OF LIFE 2!

Everything you need to know about THE GAME OF LIFE 2 on mobile, PC and Nintendo Switch

THE GAME OF LIFE 2 is the award winning sequel to the beloved Hasbro board game, THE GAME OF LIFE. It’s the same classic style of gameplay with a few fundamental differences, bringing the game to a whole new generation of players! 

As a parent it can be difficult to keep up with what your kids are playing. Many digital games aren’t made for families to play together, which can lead to hours of time spent playing alone. In this article, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about THE GAME OF LIFE 2, a digital board game that can be played together as a family, wherever you are.

A Great Learning Experience

THE GAME OF LIFE 2 places each player in the driving seat of their own life journey. Literally. The first thing you do is select a peg colour, an outfit, and a vehicle that will transport you around the board. 

Throughout the game players are offered choices which have ongoing consequences. Your kids will get to experiment with what it means to go to college versus going straight into a job. They’ll get to choose between varied careers, such as surgeon or vlogger, robotics engineer or rock star. They’ll be given the chance to buy their dream house and they’ll get to choose to get married, stay single, adopt pets or start a family.

In THE GAME OF LIFE 2, each player has the freedom to win in their own way. While the aim of the original game was to become the richest player on the board, now players can earn points for Wealth, Happiness and Knowledge. Most of our early players made choices that led to an even split between the three! Balance is important, and achieving it can lead to real success in THE GAME OF LIFE 2.

The Traditional Game Made Digital

With THE GAME OF LIFE 2 you get the traditional best-selling board game in digital format, which means you get the fully animated visuals with all the social benefits of playing together.

Full multiplayer capabilities mean 4 people can play together in multiple formats:

  • ONLINE MULTIPLAYER – Invite friends and family to a private multiplayer game by sending them a unique code. Set your kids up playing a secure online game with their grandparents, or give them quality time with their friends wherever they are!
  • OPEN ONLINE MULTIPLAYER – Safe multiplayer with fans around the world. There’s no chat feature with this player mode, so your child will get the experience of playing against real people, without any of the danger. There really is no way for a stranger to contact them through the game.
  • PASS & PLAY – No internet? No problem! Simply pass a single device between players at home or on the go, for an offline, wifi-free experience.

With the vibrant 3D digital board, the action is brought to life. It’s an immersive experience, filled with charm and fun animations. There’s even an original soundtrack composed by award-winning movie composer, Christopher Willis!

Pay Once for Ad-Free Quality Time

If you worry about your kids getting distracted and tempted by adverts, don’t worry! Zero ads makes for a more immersive experience, and means THE GAME OF LIFE 2 is a safe space. 

You pay once for the complete classic game and play it as many times as you like with no extra or hidden costs. 

There is a shop and you can buy additional worlds, which include new themed boards, outfits, vehicles and more, but these are entirely optional.

If you’re looking for a game that will combine the excitement of digital, with the benefits of traditional board games, THE GAME OF LIFE 2 is perfect. It’s currently available on iOS, Android, PC (Steam) and Nintendo Switch. A single game can be played across different platforms, so if your parents are playing on iPad while the kids play on Nintendo Switch, that’s fine.

So invest in some classic board game fun, in an up-to-date, digital format!
