The Game Of Life is a board game originally created in 1860 by Milton Bradley that simulates a person's travels through their life. The modern version was created in the early 1960s and consists of a track on which players travel by spinning a small wheel with spaces numbered 1 through 10. Each space has a good or bad event and the object of the game is to finish with the most money. I have created a TX Letterboxer version of Life for you to play, but in this game the object is to finish with positive Happy Points. You will pick a TX Letterboxer to be your player and spin 10 times, experiencing 10 good and bad events in their letterbox lives, which will add or subtract from your Happiness Points based on the number you spin and importance of the event. You must win to see the clues to the letterbox, which is located in Mary Moore Searight Metro Park. Good luck! NOTE: It has been reported that the picnic table and trash can mentioned in the clues are now gone, but hopefully you can guess where they used to be and still find the box.
From I35 in south Austin, exit onto Slaughter Lane and head west. After about 1 mile you will pass Palace Parkway then some apartments on the left. Turn left immediately after the apartments into Mary Moore Searight Metro Park and drive about 1 mile to the parking area.
