I recently posted this picture of a board game that I invented on my Facebook Page. It was made mostly from upcycled materials, some old linoleum squares, pieces of cardboard and cut up cracker boxes, altoid tins and bottle caps a few wine corks and some other misc junk. Ironically I posted it because I was having some technical difficulties with facebook and so I was looking for something to post just to test the problem with FB. Well the issue with facebook resolved itself within an hour or two but by that time my picture had already been shared, liked and commented on.
Anyway I thought maybe I should give this project a little more attention. In truth I never quite finished it even though we did play the game once or twice at a family gathering. So I have decided to resurrect it and see what happens next.
The title of my post isn't quite fair to be honest I was influenced more by the game "Careers" but how many people remember that one? And actually there is a pretty strong resemblance to Monopoly as well as a touch of Candy-Land. Ah Yes my childhood is coming back to haunt me.
With the holidays coming up I should have an opportunity to do some more product testing. I am pretty sure that none of the rules were ever written down and the spaces on the board are currently made from post it notes.
Maybe after some further product testing I will actually finish it and it will become a great family heirloom.
(I don't think Hasbro will be knocking on my door anytime soon :-)
