Hasbro Inc. teamed up with TripAdvisor to add vacations to The Game of Life game. For the first time in the board game’s 60-year history, players will be encouraged to choose their dream destinations with vacation cards inspired by some of TripAdvisor’s top-ranked family destinations and activities.
The Game of Life’s new vacation card options includes a ski trip, a beach day in Punta Cana, hiking the Great Wall of China, and visiting the Eiffel Tower. To celebrate the collaboration, a recent survey conducted by TripAdvisor illustrated just how important not just travel—but family travel—is to consumers. Of respondents surveyed, 86 percent say taking vacation is an essential part of life; 88 percent say vacations enhanced their lives; and more than half feel happier, rejuvenated and closer with their families after taking a family vacation.
The Game of Life with the vacation updates will be available at most major retailers nationwide and on HasbroToyShop.com this August.
