Fun race/points game with several clever twists. The calander spinner mechanism and several strategic concepts make it a bit clever, and the board is visually pleasing. The manual and event days provide a good history lesson, and some of the Hazard and Chance cards require you to show preference/disdain for other player in order to succeed. The only bad thing about this one is the fact that certain innate qualities of the players will automatically make them more/less successful, plus the simplicity of the game shaves a little off of the replay value. Best played with a mixture of family members and non-family members and also a mixture of younger and older players.

Me gusta la mecanica del juego, aparte tiene bastantes detallitos originales que me gustan. A mis amigos no les gusto, a mi no me gustan los contenidos de las cartas son una bobada que sin duda cambiaria del juego.

A bit long for what it is (a basic roll-and-move), and a board that is a bit convoluted for newbies, but you gotta love that calendar spinner!

Not very high on replayability, but it has one of the coolest moving mechanisms I have ever seen in a game - a little flipping calendar.

Try and have the best year you can to win. Can still be quite fun. Good for non-gamers as the only real skill you need is to answer yes or no to things you may or may not have done so far in your real life. Good for the odd surprise revelation!

The spinner is the unique feature of this game. Two numbers appear, and the player can choose which one to use. However, this game still generally comes down to who gets to move faster. The bonuses for getting to the end of each quarter are just too big.

Some highlights (the spinner, the personal nature) but some significant lowlights (multiple plays are dull, very random). See my review for further details!

Roll-and-move party game in which players race through a year trying to make the most of it - it includes holidays, the odd cash here and there and some events that are recalled, with varied consequences for the player who happened to land on the correspondent day. There is not much decision making but at least the game has a clear arc and some production gimmicks that help entertain the players.

Since a good portion of the fun lies in discovering what player has done what, the game is suitable for a couple of plays a year - especially if it's with different groups.

Fun the first couple of times, but very quickly wears thin. Some of the hazards (good and bad) are dependent on the people playing the game, so if you always play with the same group then these too become monotonous.

This could well be one of the stupidest games I've ever played... Played it once, maybe twice... no desire to ever play it again.

In spite of mechanisms to mitigate the luck factor (choice of numbers to move, can spend cash to go extra spaces) this is really just roll-and-move with rewards and penalties given along the way.

Crappy game of the Game of Life style. Only rate the gameplay weight as light/medium due to lots of fiddly exceptions in the rules of what otherwise should be a very simple game.

"I know, let's design a roll-and-move game about paying the bills every month."

I can only suppose this seemed like a good idea towards the end of a particularly exuberant New Year's Eve party. This is basically The Royal Game of the Goose without the engravings or the venerable history.

The one time I tried it, everyone thought it was lame - more educational than a party game and more random than a Euro.
