A real sleeper hit for Sierra, this tongue-in-cheek game is all about keeping up with the Jones[es], as the popular saying goes. Get enrolled in school, pay rent, buy material necessities... and make sure you do it all faster than Jones! Effective boardgame-like interface and good graphics further enhance great gameplay. The not-competitive-enough Jones even at the most difficult level is the only weak spot in this enjoyable game.

Note: Make sure to get the full CD-ROM version which Sierra released shortly after the floppy version. In addition to Windows 3.1 support, the game now has digitized voices for all the characters you talk to. Great fun!
