About this deal

Rather they enter the free market, making purposeful career building decisions and regularly switching from one career to another. This time the box was shrunk to half the original size, and the game board was much more colourful and laid out in a different fashion than previous versions. As you go round the various careers paths (which you do by throwing a single die instead of the usual two) there is opportunity to gain fame and happiness points, appropriate to the different careers themselves. Careers is a board game first manufactured by Parker Brothers in 1955, which has been reprinted from time to time up to the present day.

As an aside, any mention of having a secretary was removed from the Big Business path, and replaced with “Given Larger Office 4 ♥”. Tarda més a arribar del que diuen quan fas la comanda però pots anar fent seguiment del paquet xq l’enviament a Espanya és amb correos. All paths have some prerequisite for entry, and benefits accrue from going through any of the paths more than once. In 1990 "Careers for Girls" included the jobs "School Teacher", "Fashion Designer" and "Super Mom", while the game's strategy was greatly simplified, as in the 1972 re-release.We're all about working hard and having fun, and we're looking for some exciting talent to join the team! With a couple of modernisations I can see it being really popular, or an exact replica of the original would also have great retro appeal too. All game pieces are included and are all in fine condition, with each type of game piece neatly organized and contained in clear plastic zipper bags. Turning off the personalised advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive.

Leading off the main track are eight “career” paths which players can choose to follow if they land on the relevant start square, or may be forced to follow if they have received an instruction to do so from a card or other square on the board.This vintage edition of ‘Careers’ by Waddington’s dates from the 1950’s and includes wooden playing peices. A key part of the game of careers is that players have to record quite a lot of information about their journey around the board themselves. Of course, being a Parker Brothers game, things get a tad more complex with other game elements, including special game board spaces and unique situations presented by Experience and Opportunity cards, that altered game play. It is also no surprise that a new version, “Careers for Girls,” failed terribly after making a brief, unpopular showing in 1990.
