This game is a lot of fun, for kids and grown-ups. It will take you back to when you played the orignal, yet it’s obviously much more “hip” and “current” with the addition of the ipad in the center. It’s well done and a great way to bridge the zap, I mean gap (sorry, that was bad) between old and new. It’s a great idea and well done. Can’t wait to see more of these zAPPed games come around. Here’s a little more info:
Whether they’re played around the kitchen table, on the computer, or on a smart phone – there are many ways to enjoy games!

The Game of Life zAPPed brings the family-favorite game to life with the integration of an iPad.

When landing on a zAPPed space on the game board in their brightly colored car, players may unlock special features such as mini games, comical animations or a hilarious clip from “America’s Funniest Videos.”
