How to Play the Game of Life: Spongebob Squarepants Edition

Updated February 21, 2017

The Game of Life has been a family board game favourite for decades. Now you can play Life with your children, helping SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends get through life in Bikini Bottom. This game is available both as a board game and a downloadable computer game.

Assemble the board game according to the instructions provided. Connect the wheel to the game board and put the stickers in place along the board.

Allow each player to choose the character he wants to use during the game. Characters include SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward and Mr. Krabs.

Assign a banker to control the money and have her distribute five £65 bills to every player.

Have everyone spin the wheel. The player who spins the highest number goes first, and all other players follow in a clockwise direction.

Have each player decide on her first turn whether she would like to go to college or start a career. Move the game pieces to the corresponding part of the board.

Players spin the wheel at the beginning of each turn and move game pieces around Bikini Bottom. Characters will encounter events along the board requiring them to pay expenses, make career choices, choose their homes and more.

Game pieces must be moved around the board until they reach the Shady Shoals Rest Home. Each player must complete the game before the winner can be determined.

Have all of the players cash in their Life tiles and raffle notes, and collect the money. They must also sell their homes and collect the money. Add up everyone's net worth and declare the winner as the one with the highest amount.
