Inspired by Midge Maisel's life in the Amazon original series, The Game of Life: the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel edition board game has players seeking fame and fortune during 1950S New York city. Maybe you'll get married, have kids, buy a dream home, go on vacation in the Catskills, and make it as a stand-up comic. Then again, maybe you won't. You could get divorced, bomb at the jokes, and end up in a dumpy apartment. Choose a path and find out what life has in store for you. The player with the most money at the end of the game wins – unless someone hits it big time in comedy!
Our inspiration comes from The Gift of Laughter, a companion exhibit to So Ready for Laughter: Bob Hope and World War II, which includes costumes from the Emmy Award-winning series “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” Both exhibitions are on view through September 5, 2021.
Includes game board, spinner (dial, base, pointer, cardboard insert), 108 cards (90 event, 6 Career, 6 college career, 6 apartment), 6 cars, 48 pegs, 6 comedy show posters, money pack (includes Insurance certificates and promissory notes), money tray, and instructions.
