It was more fun when I was a kid.

It = something you did when you were a kid? Something you still do now?

Visconti: I would e-mail my answer, but I don't have your e-mail address.

Everyone else: If my idea is correct, don't look at my "The origins of lateral thinking" puzzle until this one is solved.

It = something you did when you were a kid? yes Something you still do now? only very recently, and very rarely

Balin: I cannot change my email address on my account for some reason so to display it wouldn't make sense; email me at bvisconti @ gmail.com. And I'd be VERY surprised if you can guess it this early.

It = a game? Any other action?
Is it considered a typical thing to do for children? And not for adults?

Playing Clue relevant? Playing some other board game? Or a sport?

Is it less fun because now you've actually experienced life? And life is nothing like Life?

Are the changes to the game over the last 100 (or less!) years relevant?

Is a specific rule of Life relevant? I've actually never played it so that I don't know the rules...

I've put this puzzle into Limbo for now . You can reactivate it by answering any outstanding questions.

Sorry for the limbo! Life intervened.

*** SPOILER ***
I was playing the Game of Life, and I remembered it being so much more fun when I was a kid. But now stuff like "Taxes!" and other real life costly things just made me depressed : ( Sorry for the limbo!

So life intervened on Life, huh?

Clever - I'm not quite in the real world, so i think I can still enjoy the game. Haven't played it in a while, though.

Thanks for coming back to this Visconti. I also like the notion that life intervened in a puzzle about the game of life.

And yes I agree the game was more enjoyable when you didn't have to worry about the issues dealt within it.

I'll pop this puzzle into the recently solved for now.
