Re(2): Listener No. 4368: The Name of the Game by Harribobs

To quote from the solution notes

"The theme was the Game of Life, created by mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970. Extra letters in wordplay gave “start cells have element of life; shade second generation”. Thus the cells containing L/I/F/E made up the first generation of live cells, from which one application of the rules would produce the second generation, forming LIFE in large letters."

Would look like only LIFE is acceptable.
