About this deal

This is a print and play board game with everything you need to have an educational and fun board game revision lesson.

There is a track for college where one receives a degree, which causes one's annual salary grow upon completing each full round of the board, and affects other aspects of the game as listed in the cards and on the board squares.Four happiness points are awarded to players who land on this particular corner square and players may also choose to stay there is they roll 7 or less whilst there.

Decades after earning it, I'm finally putting the skills I learned while completing my history degree from the University of Victoria to good use.The Experience cards allow you to move a certain number of spaces – 1 through 4 – instead of rolling the dice. If they want to go through that career again on a future turn around the board, they can enter the path without paying the entrance cost.

Players could also get college degrees in Law, Medicine, Engineering, Science, or a general College Degree.Bibliography: The Best Classic Board Games – Careers (1955 – 2009), 2010, Recycled Thoughts From A Retro Gamer, https://magisterrex. It means that you have no idea if you should be rushing to do something as the others are hot on your tail, or if actually you’re miles out in front. So players don’t know what their opposition is working towards, or how close anyone may be to winning the game. We have enjoyed our morning Hnefatafl and coffees, as we turn our minds to the Viking mode of simulated war.
