You picked Careers again, didn't you?


Careers is such an underrated game. Way ahead of its time.


This is what the old farts like me had to resort to when we wanted to sharpen our strategery back before the internet: The Playboy Winners Guide to Board Games . No pictures to excite a young lad like me, just descriptions and tips. Some of the games that I remember were:

Monopoly (Oranges and Boardwalk/PP)
Othello (had grades for all the squares)
Stratego (those two guys hanging out together are the 2 and the Spy)
Risk (Australia or lose)

And descriptions of a lot of others. My copy is long gone, and I'm not paying $20 for old-times' sake.

I bring it up because one of the games the author thought highly of was Careers. It had that 'chose your own score' system that is in Arabian Nights. Want $, be a Businessman. Want fame, be a Movie Star, etc. We had a copy when we were kids, and played it a lot. It's like the much smarter, much better cousin to The Game of Life.
