The 1958 version added reuseable score pads, but those vanished with the 1965 version, which also used the same occupations, but different box art. The yellow opportunity cards are used to move to the entrance squares of the various careers on the board. The whole presentation had a much cheaper feel than past incarnations, with poorer quality game cards and board art.

For anyone not familiar with the Apollo missions, Mattingly had to drop out of his planned Apollo mission in 1970 when he came into contact with German measles shortly before launch, although he never actually contacted it. He would loved to have seen how the internet and social media such as Facebook played a part in 2011 uprisings in North Africa, but, unfortunately, Brown died in 2000 at age 78. Besides self-evident attempts to keep pace with vocational fashion and mores, certain rules have changed. As you go around the board players have the opportunity to pick up both opportunity and experience cards. This version of Careers had Sports, Show Biz, Big Business, Politics, and Space as occupations (what happened to Ecology?Four happiness points are awarded to players who land on this particular corner square and players may also choose to stay there is they roll 7 or less whilst there.

Those were the three goals that the player had to achieve, with a total of 60 points to be divided between them, as each player chose their own combination as their ultimate career achievement (if only real life was that simple!

The Opportunity cards allow you to move to the career stated on the card, and four of the cards also give you free tuition to 4 different career paths.

You use only one die along a career path, accumulating one or more of life’s necessities on your journey, but different career paths offer a different balance of each.

The game of Careers also serves as an insight into our changing interests and values over time and points out variations across different cultures. Share with us your comments, funny stories, tips, advice, strategies, creative ways to play, questions about how to play, problems with the directions or anything you want about Careers. For players who land on the Hospital square they are required to stay there until they throw 5 or less. If a player completes a single occupation path several times, they can pick up multiple experience cards.
