Post Game of Life game idea
I was thinking of a game idea for you Mark .....

as I was looking at your tycoon game it reminded me of Monopoly,

so why not have a game similar to "the game of life"?

a simpilified version but where one makes or loses money in life like problems etc. Obviously this would be aimed at the higher levels
The real game of life uses quite difficult words and uses large amounts of money, I was thinking of a simplier version

hhhmmm? what do you think?

No. I was just thinking it over.

I'm working on getting a phonics game section together for students and after that's got some decent content, then I can give the game shot.

It has a funky spinner right? (It's been a long time since I've played :) )

oh ok, yes, sorry, you are so busy!

And yes, Thats the game that has a spinner thing instead of a die. I hadn't played it for years either and the other day I tried it out and it was great. It would have to be simplified but I think it would work.
Anyway, for what its worth ...

by the way, I found the official game on line (a free download) you can play it free for 1 hour.
So Mark you don't even need to go looking for the actual game to think about how to adapt it to ESL etc, just have a look at the game online and decide.
But I know you are busy now with the phonics thing

anyway, here is the url
