real_lifeThe Game of Real Life is a parody on the Game of Life, but it’s actually for sale.

In Real Life, your first experience might be to get aborted and have to start over. Then you travel through a world of sex, drugs, and war, experiencing wealth or poverty, parental love or rejection, and so on. The object is to end with the most happiness.

Sounds farcical, but some open-minded educators are actually using the game as a springboard for discussion.
