The Game of Life

I had a dream two nights ago wherein my family and I were all sitting around the coffee table playing The Game of Life (the board game).The whole time we were playing the game I watched what everyone did, listened carefully to the rules, and attempted to come up with a key strategy to win.

The problem was - I simply couldn't understand how to play. I couldn't wrap my head around the rules, or how the game worked. It made no sense to me.

Everyone kept getting frustrated and exasperated with me because I just couldn't figure it out. I kept trying to play the game correctly, but it just wasn't working.
