I just bought the 1992 version and it doesnít use the degree cards but didnít come with rules. Does anyone know where I can get a copy or download of the rules? Maybe someone willing to send them to me?

Rachel says:

Hi. Can anyone tell me how many cards I should have and how much of each denomination of money I should have so I can tell if this game is complete? I have the 1971 Careers edition #60 from the US. I have the US directions, but it doesn't list the content # of cards or money. Thanks!
M says:

If I go into unemployment, instead of paying half my salary, can someone 'bail' me out by paying it for me? The rules don't say anything against so I'm assuming it can be done. Can someone confirm this?

Linda, (6-22-15) YES you may use an experience card instead of rolling the dice or die on any turn. It says so in the 2003 rules page 1.
Linda says:

If you're on the Florida Vacation (very old version) can you use Experience cards to stay there instead of rolling the dice?

I have a 1971 UK Version of the game that was manufactured in South Africa. I am looking for the rules of this version.
Shaanya says:

Ummm, these aren't all the rules and I barely understood. Plus you can buy this WAY cheaper at Wal-Mart.
