The Old Game of Life in my Attic

If you found this gem in your attic,


in perfect condition, what would you do with it?


Play it?


Sell it?


Frame it and display it?


I was so excited when I found this in our attic! I bought it at a garage sale before we were married, stuck it in a box, and COMPLETELY forgot about it. I didn’t check the year, but now I’m curious.


But I’m even more curious to hear, what would you do with it?

    I found the exact one at GW and we play it! So great to have the VINTAGE version. Congrats on your newest addition a tad late! Melissa

    I would play it then make a shadow box out of it. Put the box as the background and the pieces, etc. in. It could be really cool!

    I just can’t help but laugh. I am 48 and this IS the game I have from my childhood. I know we got it new when I was a child and it is still the game we play at our house…I just could never upgrade. Still have the ancient game of CLUE that is probably older than I am too…and it just makes me laugh to think it’s vintage…….

    I would keep it! The games today just pale in comparison. Those were meant to last. The ones today are here today gone tomorrow! What a gem! I wish I could find the 70’s version of Hungry Hungry Hippos. If you’re not interested in keeping it, sell it on E-Bay. I always like when other people pay me to part with stuff!

    I would play it and then display it. I was thinking the same thing as Stacey with displaying it. What an awesome find!
