'CAREERS' BOARD GAME: This is Waddington's game of 'how to make money and influence people'. It's a race to succeed. Each player goes after his secret ambitions for money, fame or happiness. With eight different careers to choose from, the prizes are high. Be a famous film star, the first man on the moon, or head a government. You'll find the way to the top is far from smooth: there are risks to be taken, scandals arise and taxes must be paid. But at the end there's room at the top for the lucky winner.

The game box is in very good condition for its age. And but for a couple of barely noticeable marks, the game board is in excellent condition. Almost all the cards are clean and crisp, with only a couple showing signs of discolouration. The bank notes are very large and in first class condition. Strikingly, the dice and playing tokens are wooden and hand-painted. This game comes with a very generous compliment of scoring sheets, without which the game cannot be played. Overall, a quite brilliant example of a classic board game which, although now over 55 years old, appears to have barely been used.

For 2 - 6 players.
