Frankly, I avoided this game when I first saw it on the shelf.
Although it was nominated
for the Spiel des Jahres
has excellent design pedigree, it looked simplistic and I'm
fan of roll and moves. However, when looking to pick up a new
game to play with non-gamers, I bought it after all. Before we
were half-way thru the first game it was apparent that I had
underestimated this game. The design is elegant, with nearly
every die roll causing a dilemma. At times you hope for
to escape from negative points while at others you simply wish
you didn't have to move at all. My game group, which prefers
meaty "gamer's games", was smitten and clearly as pleasantly
surprised as I had been (causing a run at the local shop!).
played That's Life! with both 3 and 5 players, several times
and found it played well with either number of players.
