Wow, has this kiddie activity changed. Today’s small fry will no longer be using cash, or play money as we used to refer to it, while playing Milton Bradley’s [tag-tec]The Game of Life [/tag-tec].
Now they’ll be charging everything with [tag-ice]credit cards[/tag-ice].
Could things be getting just a little bit too realistic for tiny pre-teens? Besides, half the fun of that game was throwing your play [tag-self]money[/tag-self] around and watching it land all over the floor. Or at least it was for me.
Can’t do that with pretend credit cards.
Makes us wonder what’s next for such classics as Monopoly.
