The downloadable PC title is an update of the classic board game of the same name. WND writes:
The online version of a popular board game from many Americans’ childhood includes an option for players to choose homosexual marriage and child-rearing as a way of life… even children can download and play a free trial version of The Game of Life, the first game ever created by Mr. Milton Bradley in 1860.
The player’s first option in the online version is to choose a persona based on pictures that clearly depict men and women. Shortly thereafter, the game invites players to choose a spouse, regardless of the potential spouse’s sex…
But, as WND notes, the modern version of the board game, created in 1960, allowed for gay unions as well:
The board game did not prevent players in any way from placing two pink or two blue pegs in the front seat [of the playing piece representing the family car], thus depicting a homosexual couple.
