Hehe, I have that installed and play it with my girl every few months. We switch off between that and Oregon Trail or YDKJ. hehe

I like Jones in the Fast Lane a lot. It reminds me of a board game called Careers that we used to play at home when I was a kid.

I played that a lot as a kid when I would visit my Aunt and Uncle (who had a computer).

I once saw a screen shot of the game where the person had inscribed their tombstone with,

"I should have stayed in bed"

In an instant I suddenly thought about all the hours of sleep I had lost to dying from cholera, dysentary, broken bones, snakebites, famine, drowning, and Indian raids.

Anyways, you may enjoy this shirt I found:

That's awesome!

That'd be fun to wear just to see if anyone got the reference.

It's a really fun game, I'd love to have it on the DS or something like that.

Wow, what a coincidence. While I was looking for games my girlfriend might like, I let her play Jones and she immediately took off with it. I hadn't touched it in 10 years. It's still quite an enjoyable game.
