2019 Academic Symposium

Ridenour 115

The Game of Life evolved from Milton Bradley’s first game, “The Checkered Game of Life,” produced in 1860. One hundred years later, Milton Bradley introduced “The Game of Life.” When Hasbro bought the Milton Bradley, they “updated” the game, which is the version available today. Although the game mechanics are similar, the narrative for each is quite different, reflecting what society viewed as a good life and how it was achieved. Join this session and play the games to discover the narrative.
