The Barbie Game




When I was a little kid I always played this one game called The Barbie Game. It's kind of...I don't know...shallow? The object is to become prom queen, but to accomplish that you must:
1. Get a Boyfriend (and go steady) 
2. Be the President of a club, and
3. Buy a prom dress
Then you (and every other player) rush to the prom but get hampered by things like bad hair, a ripped hem, losing a turn because you made your date wait too long, whatever. Its kind of lame, but I love it, and so do all my friends (including guys, who, for some reason, take it more seriously than the girls....). 
It was because of my guy friends playing that I decided to make playing cards of girlfriends, tuxes, and sports clubs. Admittedly, it was super funny to have Seth dating Poindexter, wearing the 'Let's Party' dress, and being president of the Music Club, but once I got the idea into my head I couldn't get rid of it. 
I'm still in the process of painting the last girlfriend card (the first attempt looked eerily like Hilary Clinton...), and I can't remember where I put the tuxes and sports clubs, but once I find them I'll scan and post them. I do have the first 3 girlfriends, though.
