Three important life lessons learned from Candy Land
Sometimes you have to think outside the box. You have five players, but only four gingerbread men pawns? Improvise! (Hence the Toy Story Alien...)
Sometimes you just have to play the cards you are dealt. Let's face it, there's not a lot of strategy or skill involved in playing Candy Land. Whoever wins does so out of pure luck. If luck isn't on your side that day, all you can do is play the cards you receive and do the best you can.
Anything can happen. Once a kid passes the Ice Cream Sea en route to the Candy Castle, everyone starts thinking that the game is over. More often than not, that kid will draw the plum or candy cane card and will have to go back almost to the beginning. Other times, kids who are trailing behind and think they have no shot at winning will draw the snowflake card and suddenly find themselves in the lead. Candy Land, with its wild unpredictability, is a lot like life.
