When I was a kid, several decades ago (shock horror), I used to play a board game with some school friends. The game was called ‘Careers’ and you won the game if you collected 60 points or more. What made it interesting was there were three types of points that could be collected – Happiness, Money and Fame and you could balance those 60 points anyway you liked – 20:20:20 or even 60:0:0. At the start of the game you chose the point structure that suited you and the game then began. The nature of the game was clearly to gain the points needed to win. This created a series of interesting options centred around education and careers (hence the name), one career if I recall was ‘Astronaut’ and another was ‘Politician’. Although at the time it was just a fun game, the analogies of life are quite amazing. I later found out the game was developed by a sociologist and so the basis of the game may well have been based on his clinical research.
