What are your life goals? Are you willing to do what it takes to achieve them? In this game, fate selects your goals, and changes them arbitrarily, so that after spending much time and effort to become a rock star, for example, fate decides you must now renounce that life and make the necessary life-style changes to become -- for example -- a priest. Once you are pious and priestly, fate is likely to find another goal, which requires yet more significant changes in your life. This is a fun and fast-moving game that will leave you exhausted from the laughter and chaos!
Because of some graphic content in the game, it is not recommended for players under 17. The German edition of this game is even more graphic.
This is a fun little game that some will liken to an R-rated version of "The Sims". You bid on and play cards, each of which describes a stage, event, or emotional period of your life. You are not trying to have a virtuous or pleasant life. Instead, you are trying to make your life interesting and eventful, often in a very negative way: Do drugs, get pregnant, have an affair, join a cult, go through detox, make an unsuccessful suicide attempt, and so on.
A status chart on the board keeps track of things for each player, such as how much you drink, how rich you are, how religious, how depressed, how much you smoke, and so on. And you can have relations, sex, affairs, get married and divorced from the other players. You are trying to play all the cards in your hand, each of which has prerequisites such as: "You must be unmarried, smoke, drink, and have three ex-lovers". The life events auctioned off each turn (more cards) help you achieve some of these prerequisites. The first player to play all of his hand cards wins.
As you may surmise, the play is a little random, with the cards that come up determining whether you can achieve one of your goals or not. But the process is lots of fun, especially if you role-play a bit.
The theme is obviously not suited for families, and I have doubts about whether it will ever be published in an English version because of its VERY graphic subject matter. But if you have a group who don't mind this kind of material, it can be a kick to play!
