Life is not Money

Welcome back to part 4. Before we really really start, let’s clear up this monetary thing.

Seriously, is this like Life – The Drug Dealers version? Nobody uses cash anymore. How would you get your airline miles then? I mean, the passing of cash back and forth, that takes up more than half the time of the game (well, that and chasing that damn spinner everywhere). We’ve got to get rid of that outdated notion and move on to the Life Debit Cards with our new Life swipe machine and balance display. Welcome to real life!

Face the reality of Life; you're gonna hit all the bad stuff all the way through the game. You'll be in dept for the majority of the game. In fact, perhaps we could just have a sub game where the goal is to stay out of dept by the end! How life like is that? Swipe away!

Next Up…. Get a Life

I think you should start them out up to their asses in debt and the goal of the game is to finish by dying before they put your old butt in a state run home because you don't have enough money for a private place and your ungrateful kids won't have you even though you could afford good care if you hadn't paid for the 7 years it took for them to get a degree in low gravity basket weaving.
Now THAT's life.

I feel guilty charging stuff under $10, so I pay cash in those cases. Also, I feel bad using the credit card at the health food store, where I know they are judging me for being in cahoots with The Man.

Hey, I'll be right there in the state run place iamnot; probably watching jeopardy while I drool.

Kurt, tell those health food zealots that all your reward points go toward pesticide free agriculture efforts (but secretly you use them for vacations just like the rest of us).

AB, welcome from delurking. Your site doesn't allow comments so I couldn't make any. Enjoy the nonsense; it's always here.

Hopefully the debit card is constantly f#ing up and charging you outrageous fees like in ral life...

Yeah, and a bonus feature; you can steal your opponents identity for awhile and charge up his/hers!!! Plus, you'll only have to lose a turn as punishment (overcrowded prisons you know).
