Every time my bank offers me “cheques” to write against my Visa card I feel my blood pressure start to climb. So you can imagine how much I enjoyed hearing about the new Visa branded version of the game of “Life”. I used to play the original game when I was a kid, and as I recall, it was questionable even then. I suppose it would be impossible to prevent the game from validating certain life decisions and knocking others. But it was at least fun. The new version sounds less fun. In keeping with its backing from Visa, the new version rewards the children for acquiring credit card debt. No, I’m not kidding.

Something to say?
