If you’ve ever wanted to go ‘self-sufficent’, here’s your chance to give it a try... Use your wheelbarrow to move around the board to collect fruit, vegetables, pigs and chickens. The winner is the first to fill their garden and allotment with the most produce and animals. Seems simple. It is. But the ‘Green Fingers’ cards turn up unexpected twists and turns. So you’ll have to protect your chickens from foxes, sell your crops and livestock at the village fair, and avoid drought, bird flu, and your animals escaping. Now, are you ready for The Good Life?

The Good Life boardgame is great fun for children, but can also be played and enjoyed by adults. There are lots of interesting, funny, and ‘eye-opening’ facts that players will learn along the way as they play the game.

‘The Sunday Times’ received a pre-production copy of the game, and have given a great quote to use: “Don’t encourage kids to become greedy bankers with Monopoly - keep them green with this Good Life game.”
