Ever thought of going to sea? Entering politics? How about uranium prospecting or going to the moon?
In 1956, Parker Brothers produced a game that gave players the opportunity to follow a path to a wide variety of careers. Success was determined by a player's ability to achieve goals in fame, happiness and money.
An interesting twist to the game was that players could go through as many careers as they wished, as many times as they wished, except for one ... college!
The game board is very interesting reading and is an interesting reflection of life in the fifties.
In the game, to start in farming, one needed $1,000 for seed and supplies or farming experience. Going to sea required $100 for union dues or sea experience. An interesting space on the board has "Shopping Spree: Throw 1 die to find out what your wife just spent on shopping spree. Pay number thrown times 10 % percent of your cash-on-hand."
This game is complete, including instruction book. One missing die has been replaced (the game requires two and had only one).
