A great fun pick up and play game. get the older versions as the re-do is total crap.

Holds the record for me with 12 hours of continuous play in one day. as each game only take 20-40 min. that's a whole lot of games in one session.

If you asked me to play right now i would not say no. a near perfect game in my mind.

My favorite game of all time. I spend more time playing Careers than any other game. (95% of game time is either Careers, Connect6, or Glinski's Hexagonal Chess.)

Still having fun with Careers after all these years. Introduced it to my nieces and nephews the other day -- they loved it, even when their dad won!

One of Parker Brothers very best games. Owned since the mid-60s (Uranium Prospecting, please), I still play it with great pleasure at least once a year. Sometimes it's fun to attempt highly unbalanced success formulas (e.g., $4000, 8 Fame, 48 Happiness)–hard to win but quite a kick if you do!

NOSTALGIA. My sister and me played this time and time again, i would always love business and politics. A great game for kids full of different possibilities.

I adore this game, but some of that is nostalgia. Still, this one was way ahead of its time... and it holds up quite nicely. NOTE: My '9' rating is for the original (pre-1971) game only (the board with the Uranium Prospecting track). When they updated the various careers and event language, they actually changed the game - and for the worse.

Beware the 2003 Hasbro edition! It looks nice, but they have seriously botched the rules about college degrees! Otherwise... a very amusing and crowd-friendly game with the innovation of choosing your own victory condition before the game begins.

An amusing game where your beginning decision sets the tone for the whole game. Lots of luck-o-the-dice, but it's OK.

We played this game as a family for YEARS and it never got old... good challenge for both kids and parents. There was a reprint in the 80s or 90s which dumbed the game down and made it suck. The original version is a fantastic family game. Meet normal requirements. May save or sell.

This is a fantastic game of both chance and strategy - its great to play with just about anyone, even those who generally don't like board games. One of the only downsides to it is that you need to replace the papers that come with it, which are hard to find.

I love this game and so does everyone I play with. Even a group of rich preppy high school jocks. I cannot get them to stop playing and talking about it. I love the design, but it is a bit confusing at some parts.

Hard to imagine a better roll and move game. It's only taken other games 50 years to catch up with this (variable hidden victory conditions and player control of movement). Why did it take me so long to finally get a copy?

a childhood classic. for a die rolling game, this was so much fun. I really liked the mechanic of choosing your secret game winning goals at the beginning.

Rating is for original release only. Subtract 1.5 for seventies release and -5 for subsequent 'improvements'.

Much more than a 'roll-and-move' luckfest. Once players have had a few moves, several options are generally available on any given turn. In fact luck decreases the longer the game goes on, as nasty squares can generally be avoided (and favorable squares landed on) by the judicious use of acquired 'experience' cards.

A childhood favorite which still stands up today. The rating this game gets around here is ridiculous and must surely be a consequence of more members being exposed to the later retarded releases.

Have had this one since the late 60's. Played many times and always enjoyed the game. In those days there were a number of couples and we used to have great games days where we would play 6 or 7 games in the day. This was always one.

I've got a copy of the original edition. Of all the old classic boardgames of the mid 20th century, this has to be the best! C'mon - who doesn't want to be a uranium prospector, or be first person to land on the moon?
