I designed this game board for a story opener in Crain's Chicago Business. (The story compares the value of 10 week "Coding Bootcamps" with more traditional 4 year universities.) When I was a kid I played "The Game of Life" once, and was kind of confused by the rules, but really loved the board itself. It was at a cousins house, so I only saw it once, and after the fact it became more beautiful and complicated in my mind. Looking it up on image search now it is pretty standard. My imaginary version looked more like the Game of Thrones intro. Thanks to Karen Freese for the assignment!
