    Default Pay Day - board game

    Did anybody else ever play this?
    This was a firm family favourite in our house.
    The board was divided into a months calendar and you decided before you played how many months you would play for (i.e how many times you would go round the board).
    You would throw a dice and move through the days picking up monthly bills or whatever else you landed on as you went.
    When you got to the end of the month it was pay day and you had to settle all the bills etc.
    I also seem to remember you could get the opportunity to invest in get rich quick schemes which could have made you a lot of money.
    Seems a bit mundane now but we use to love it as kids.
    I think that there is a modern version of it still around.

    I still have the original game from the 70's from when I was a child. I've introduced my daughter to it who now has the latest version and the travel game! Fabulous game. Always wanted to get the letters with the windfalls in them.

    can not quite remember this game.

    pay day is a board game originally made by Parker Brothers now a subsidiary of Hasbro in 1975.
    It was invented by Paul J. Gruen of West Newbury.

    it could be played by 2 to 4 players.
