You decide your own success formula, then race to reach it. Try your hand at a career in the entertainment biz. Star in a TV show and gain some fame but if your first film's a flop -- your salary will suffer. If entertainment isn't your cup of tea, try a career in big business or teaching! Other players could prevent you from getting what you want, but when Opportunity Knocks, you'll go places -- even on a tropical vacation. The first person to reach their success formula is the big winner!

Hasbro has just released the 2003 edition of Careers and it's back under the Parker Brothers name. Current careers are Medical Research, Sports, Entertainment, Conservation, College, Big Business, Teaching and Politics and the style remains true to James Cooke Brown's original vision. As a baby boomer, I'm pleased to have this game back in my collection to share with the next generation.
My brother and I play an absolutely bitter, cut-throat game of Careers, setting the points at triple or quadruple what the rules require. It's a hoot. While there's not much interaction, as players are set on their own career paths, the bumping element is always a harsh reminder that you're not playing in a vacuum. Chess is pure strategy, and Backgammon is (almost) pure luck, and somewhere in between is Careers.
I've played with this game when I was a young boy and I loved it! It just have the element of choices that I may faced when I grew up like what type of careers you can choose etc. However I think the 1997 may be a bit outdated. Some new professions needs to be added.
All in all, I still think this is a wonderfull game and I would like my children to play it too.
