As second years wind down here at Booth, many of us say “I wish I could do it all again.” So I figured, it can’t be that hard to distill all of the magical experiences at Booth into a simple-to-play board game. So, I present to everyone, the Game of Booth. Grab some dice, grab some friends (or some of the kids that are running around Kovler), laugh a little, cry a lot, and enjoy the Game of Booth.
Start $200k in debt (if you are sponsored, debt is when you owe a ton of money and you’re unsure about how you can ever pay it back)
Start with 15 Credibility Points. Be careful with them! Credibility tokens directly correlate to the prestige of the job you will get when exiting the Game of Booth.
Roll a die and move those exact number of spaces (remember, you have to sign the Booth honor code at the end of the game)
Every green spot is worth $10,000. Yes, it won’t really make sense when you play it, but I have yet to make sense of my personal finances in two years, so it’s a solid simulation.
- If you run out of money, no worries! You can go into infinite debt at low rates thanks to my best friend Janet Yellen.
