About the project
Life: Immigration Game takes the original
Milton Bradley Game of Life, and replaces the game
tiles with new pieces which are related and relevant to the life
of an immigrant to the United States. The game aims to educate
native-born residents of the United States about the difficulties
and joys of immigrating to America: all the cultural misunderstandings
and rejections, the loss of a sense of home and belonging, as
well as new opportunities and cultural freedom that come with
making this radical change in one's life.
The game comes in the original box, and is meant
to be discovered by accident in game cafes. It is currently available
at Uncommons and Hex (Manhattan) and Brooklyn Strategist. More
information about the game can be found at www.LifeImmigrationGame.com.
