Ep 148: Careers Board Game Review (Parker Brothers 1955)



A review on how to play the board game Careers from Parker Brothers.

Careers is a game where the players set their own victory conditions. A player may choose to pursue Fame, Happiness, Money, or a combination of all three. The limitation being that the total number of “points” earned in the 3 categories must total 60. eg. 60 Happiness, 0 Fame, 0 Money; 20 of each; or any other combination. The players endeavor to fulfill their goal by going through any number of different “occupation paths”. All paths have some prerequisite for entry, and benefits accrue from going through any of the paths more than once. The different occupations are designed to be suited to different strategies, eg. Hollywood is good for fame points, while “Going to Sea” is good for happiness. In the end it is the player (or team of players) who gets to their pre-set goal first who will be the winner, and achieve everything they ever wanted in life. #boardgame #ads #ads

  1. I have not played this game for over 30 Years. I love this game…You explained it very well…Thanks for the refresher

  2. My favorite game my grandfather ever showed me Rest In Peace grandpa

  3. The newer OR the older version of this game have more career paths and more spaces on the outside of the board which I think makes it more interesting. I actually like this game a lot though it is a little dull to some people.

  4. My version has "Uranium Prospecting in Peru" and "Going to Sea" as careers. Big Business had "Gorgeous Secretary" as a space. Ah, bygone days…

  5. I love playing Clue.Tonight I found this modern version called Clue discover the secrets. Got it for 1.99 at Goodwill. It was complete and like new.

  6. ~ ah nostalgia… my brother, cousins, and a horde of neighbor kids helped me wear out a few of these games back in the 70's. Thanks for another sweet trip down memory lane!
