Along with other changes in the game, rules changes in the later versions included receiving only 1 Experience Card anytime you graduated from a career (as opposed to the 2 or 3 I mentioned earlier).

You need to get these Experience cards as early as possible – but, of course, it’s still the luck of the dice roll whether or not you land on the spaces that will give them to you; you can also use an Experience card in hand to move to a space that gives you two Experience cards.between the various versions throughout the years can be found in a previous blog entry, titled, The Best Classic Board Games – Careers (1955-2009) What’s In That Game Box? A few short years later, Parker Brothers released a new version of Careers, this time with slightly different occupations: Ecology, Big Business, Teaching, Politics, The Arts, Sports, and Space. 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!

It is clear that going through college has many benefits in terms of salary and being able to get into certain careers tuition-free. Towards the end of the game, players can trade cards for money or other favors (such as not knocking to the park bench).Hence the other night me and my partner (AKA The Student Support Manager at the Department of Economics, University of Leicester) found ourselves playing the Careers board game as a Friday night treat. 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.
