Aggie LIFE

Created in honor of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (celebrated in October), Aggie LIFE provides a fun way for readers to "test your cyber smarts." The game, which can be played on a laptop, desktop computer, or mobile device, mirrors a traditional board game in many ways. Users spin an electronic dial to move spaces on the game board and answer a series of questions along the way. What makes the game unique is that the questions are cybersecurity-themed. For example, questions prompt players to select a secure password and consider how to protect their accounts from hackers. Texas A&M University's Division of Information Technology created the game in 2018, with incentives and prizes for top-scoring students. These prizes were sponsored by Nerdvana, Aggieland Outfitters, and Yogurtland, but readers should note the prize offerings have since closed and were limited to Texas A&M staff and students. Readers can view and play the Division's previous games following the link on the About the Game page. Additional games include Keep Tradition Secure, Football Fever, and an older version of Aggie LIFE (from 2015).
