More and more, in contemporary times, game manufacturers hope to capitalize on classic games by giving them a new twist--often inspired by milestones in popular culture. Such is the case, recently, with The Game of Life. A fifty-year-old classic now, Life is still available in its original edition. But an electronic version, complete with players' Visa credit cards and computer-reader, is also sold to appeal to tech-savvy consumers. And several themed versions are available, such as the Rock Star edition, the "Family Guy" edition, and this version--the Wizard of OZ Collector's edition. Instead of college, business, and Millionaire Acres, players travel through the land of OZ on a journey back home to Kansas. Ruby slippers are playing pieces and the whole board is patterned after the classic 1939 movie. Playing The Game of Life can now recall the childhood dreams of many a baby boomer who grew up enthralled by "The Wizard of OZ."
