Post 763: Fewer Dice

1982 Board Game “It’s A Man’s World” PHAD Productions New Sea – $30Brand new and still sealed after over 35 years!

post 763 game

The mere title of this game (along with the fact that its makers had the audacity to produce it in the USA) should be enough to throw your favorite Democrat / Commie / Liberal / Fake-News / Feminazi friend into a full-fledged fit.
The game is vaguely similar in play to Careers in that there are different tracks that players can take, however, players must roll and move, and then do whatever the spaces instruct them to do.
Pieces move around an outside blue track if the piece is male, and the inside pink track if the piece is female. This is purportedly so that the men can protect the women.
Players move by rolling 2 dice, if on the outside track, and 1 die if on the inside track. Men start with paychecks of $710 and Women with $300. The first player to reach 10 status points and amass $20,000 wins!

Ladies, get ready to dance backward in heels. I wonder why this game is no longer being produced? It would be the perfect gift for your male chauvinist friends. I can think of several ways the female players could amass 20K but those are probably against the rules. And let me tell you, sweetheart, the USA in the 80s was not having a Golden Age of Feminism. I think I will offer Sparky $15 since I am just a poor woman in need of protection. Hey, it could work.

  1. Ah, the early 80s, when I was young.
    When the three-martini lunch was giving away to marching powder in the bathroom.
    When the old world and the new world had no idea at all.
    Right at the cusp before our machine overlords took over our lives.
    Computers were as big as refrigerators and needed a garage-sized room kept at near Arctic temperatures/ Other than those new gizmos on desktops that no one really had a use for yet.
    When steno & typing pools were not quite forgotten, and teams of college graduates worked as drudges copying things others had written, repeatedly.
    Of Telex machines and photostat copies only just giving way to telefax and xerography.
    Do not miss it in the slightest.
