Life Sucks. The Game.

Enjoy the many ways life finds to prevent you from achieving your potential!
In Life Sucks, players begin the game with 7 potential successes they might achieve over their life time. Each round a number of unfortunate life event are revealed and players bid to avoid or embrace the worst of them by sacrificing one of their possible achievements.

At the end, only the two players with the most and the fewest points win the game. They share in equal victory while all others share in equal loss.

Life Sucks is a silly party game with a surprising amount of strategy.

Note: To reduce game cost, this version does not include packaging, player points tokens, or a rule book. Cards containing the rules and a points track are included.
