ISO pictures of the Game of Life

I have been asked by my niece to make, in addition to her traditional looking wedding cake, to make a groom's cake to look like the Game of Life, circa 1980 or so. I will eventually have to get a game so that I can see the 3D parts and size, etc, but I would love a picture of the board and accessories so I can get an idea of what I am in for.

I am probably the only person in the world, but I have NEVER played this game.

Now so you know, I have already googled this and looked at pictures on the web. But what I need are some different angles and close-ups I will do the board, wheel, player pieces, houses, money, cards, etc. So I must get researching now.

Thanks so much.

Thanks Guys, this is looking like it is going to be a lot more work than the actual wedding cake which has painted and gumpaste sunflowers all over it!
