To celebrate the 45th anniversary of the board game 'Game of LIFE,' The island of Yoron in Japan teamed up with Hasbro in order to create an island-sized board game. Using a map, participants have to run around the island while completing tasks. Money from the Game of LIFE board game is awarded throughout the game.

The game itself begins on July 20 with participants paying only $5 to participate. 16 players will move through the island while it's divided into four sections. Each section will have its own spinner and board. In order to add to the authenticity of the game, a bus made to look like a game piece with the iconic player pins placed on top will drive players around the island.
