$1.99 at VV in complete and immaculate condition. I enjoy finding the different editions of this game, mostly to observe (like a social studies project) which occupations Parker Brothers chose to include in the game at each point in time. (Ecology was an intriguing career in the early 70's, but no longer by 1979, it would appear.)

Also, the game is fun to play.

In honor of Labor Day here in the U.S., lets talk a little bit about how we spend our weekdays. I know we have touched on what we all do for a career in various previous GCL lists, but tell us about your job.

1. What is your job/career?

We played this one quite a lot. The novelty in the game was that you could set you own 'career goals' to win ($$$ + fame + happiness), which was hidden from your opponents. Otherwise, it was a standard roll-and-move game.



Side Note: Boys and girls were often asked what they wanted to be when they grew up. Typical responses for boys included doctor, pilot, fireman, policeman, soldier, etc. But our generation was the first to add a new one: astronaut.

Copy 1 of 2.

Edition pictured. Copy has all the parts, but the money may be a bit short. The box shows some wear along the edges and corners, but is still in good shape, with no rips or tears.

Copy 2 of 2.

Edition pictured. Appears to be complete, and the components are in great shape. The box shows some wear, and has one split corner, but otherwise a pretty solid copy.

52 years, 44 editions (1955 – 2007)

Here’s another one a lot of us probably played as kids and wouldn’t touch today (except to play with our own kids!). Roll around the track figuring out how to make money and get ahead in the world (preferably faster than your little sister).

The positive feature that stands out most for me is the fact that each player can choose their own victory conditions – teaching kids that there’s no one path forward in life.

The latest Winning Moves edition of the game recaptures the look of the first edition box:



But the first edition did have a cool “magic slate” score pad that could be used again and again.

1. (1949) Clue
2. (1955) Careers
3. (1963) Kismet
4. (1981) Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective
5. (1987) Suppenkasper
6. (1991) The Great Balloon Race
7. (1992) Spy Alley
8. (1995) The Settlers of Catan
9. TIE (1997) Tigris & Euphrates
9. TIE (1997) Ursuppe

I'm cheating in a way, because I don't have the game of Clue logged, but I'm fairly certain I played it this year and just forgot to log it. If I'm wrong about that, I have to jump into the next millennium with Age of Steam and Puerto Rico, both from 2002. I did better than I thought I would. I was afraid I'd have to go all the way to 2010 or something, haha.

The other aspect of careers is that I really seem to enjoy games that simulate what might seem to be dry professions. I only somewhat joke that the less glamorous or less fantastical the occupation, the more interested I seem to be in the board game implementation. It’s probably unsurprising that when I game on the computer, I mostly only play simulations.

Does the idea of playing a medieval farmer or an industrial revolutionary factory entrepreneur? Do you prefer more fantastical themes? Is it totally irrelevant to you?
