The Original Game of Life was Incredibly Dark

Milton Bradley first sold The Checkered Game of Life in 1860, and almost single-handedly launched the board game craze. While the game tiles seem discouraging and downright depressing, it was a change from previous versions of the game that were designed to promote only morality. Bradley's version focused more on long life, happiness, and achievements -although there were some pretty scary pitfalls. The more modern version, of course, equates a winning life more on wealth and possessions. This video is only 4.5 minutes long, the rest is an ad.
