The careers game box in our house was battered and broke, the notes were marked and there were multiple 'create your own' score sheets that fell from the box, if you attempted to pick it up.

You may have noticed my board game obsession lately and careers is a fantastic game to add to this. My only problem? It seems unavailable to purchase unless you want to spend a fortune on a game. ~~The Game~~ Careers is one of those board games you can spend as little or as long as you want playing. You have to set your own objectives for winning and choose to go after fame, happiness or fortune or a combination of the three of them. The only rule when selecting which to go after is that they must all add up to 60 points. This is quite easy as 1 heart (happiness) is equal to one point. The same goes for 1 star (fame) and £1,000 (fortune). ... Read the complete review
