What Should I do With my Life? Card Game

There are some 600,000 different jobs in the world. Inevitably, it can be hard to know which one might be best suited to our talents and temperament. This is a game designed to help us determine what occupation could be most relevant to us. Each of the 52 cards details a highly distinctive and often fascinating profession with ratings for key factors, such as stress levels, salary and meaning, to bring our ambitions into focus. The cards work together as a fun and competitive trump game but beneath the play, the game is also trying to help us with one of the most serious tasks we face: knowing what we might usefully do with the rest of our lives.

On his or her turn, each player reads out the job title and a category from their top card (e.g Graphic Designer, Risk of Being Replaced by a Robot: 67). The other  players then read out the same category from their cards. The one with the highest value wins and that player collects all the cards played in that round. The person with all the cards at the end is the winner.

Alternatively, simply use the cards to work out the greatest underlying question you might be facing: what do I want to do with my life? For this, simply arrange the cards in order of preference from the most to the least desirable career. What patterns do you observe? What do your choices have in common? Where do you go next?
