I can relate to this one more than any other. At least things can’t get any worse. Oh yeah, you know they always can.
Oh man, this really hits home about now. I’m about to lose my job, and I care a lot less than I ought to. I’m not saying that in a cavalier way; I mean, I’m surprised. I can’t let CAT beat me, after all.
Back to square nine.
To say it with the wise words of Bad Decision Dinosaur:
High resolution version, please!
When will laminated prints of the game board be available?
I love that graduate school is on there twice – once positive, once negative. I wonder which one my program is.
You know what would be great? Friendship ending customized versions. “Get married to LuAnn from accounting even though I warned you about her.”–back to the beginning!
I kind of took it as the first is the verb “graduate” and the second is the adjective.
64 is “Die anyway”.
I love C&G, for exactly this sort of thing. I’m going to go and buy the book. If you do make a big, laminated version of this game, I’m going to buy it for relatives who are far too young to understand what it means.
i, too, would like to second my colleagues in demanding a print of this!
I love that “find yourself” is a chute. Amazing.
( slow clap )
Brad Nelson, I thought that too – one verb and one adjective.
If this was actually made I would definitely buy it.

“It’s not arbitrary. I’m winning!”
Wow. Five words, summing up the attitude that causes so much unpleasantness. I am gobsmacked.
I want this on my wall.
Is it just me, or did anyone else immediately recognize the “be born middle class” escalator as a phallus? Has the internet tainted me that much?
Awesome comic . . . wow lot of comments . . . I no longer feel cool for finding a webcomic I thought was obscure. But, such is life.
Got a really audible, high-pitched chuckle from this one.
Curious game. The only winning move is not to play.
I’d buy the board game.
This reminds me a bit of some of the old ‘Life in Hell’ charts and ‘life questionnaires’. Maybe C&G should team up with Binky from LiH for a one off? Crossover anyone?
Every LiH these days seems to be about Akbar & Jeff, and they’re not advertising a “hut”.
Wait – “these days”? Darn, I need to update my collection.
The grad school that goes up is business school (MBA), the one that goes down is anything interesting (but especially French literature).
To me the grad school escalator is entering: “wow, you must be smart/interesting/creative!” and chute is finishing: “wow, good luck finding a job!”
Its not as interesting as the 1840 version from England. That one had ‘Get typhoid and die’ on square 18 and ‘Steal some bread and get transported to Australia’ on square 52.
love Gareth :)
Arbitrary can only happen to people who get a mix: those at the edge of the bell curve see only one direction
I think this is among the most vital info for me. And i’m glad reading your article. But wanna remark on some general things, The website style is great, the articles is really nice : D. Good job, cheers
