1938 Big Box edition

This beautiful game appears to have been originally released in  1938 as a 'seperates' game - where the board was apart from the box of 'components' for the game - this was most common for board games pre-war

This BIG BOX version was released later in that year, with all the same parts, but housed in a big 'luxury' box, to incorporate both the board and all the pieces in special compartments - this greatly reduces the chances of the board being separated from the game over the years; and also protects the board and pieces much better.

From the 'Boardgamegeek' site

The game is played with on a large illustrated board divided up into 64 squares or "Milestones" with period illustrations, these represent some of the

 64 Milestones of Life, the player starts when born and passes through the various phases of life, Babyhood, Schooldays, Varsity, etc. and after

 marriage ultimately retires at 64. The first player to reach square 64 is the winner. 


The game of Milestones is played round the life-story of men and women of the 1930s.

The game commences with the players being ‘born’, passing through childhood to schooldays, thence to the University, into employment, joining their partners in ‘marriage’, and terminating when the partners ‘retire’ or reach ‘home’ at Milestone 64.

The Milestone board is drawn to show the various phases of life from babyhood onwards , whilst a pack of cards is designed to correspond with the squares on the board.
Players select their partners. They throw the dice and play individually up to ‘marriage’, after which they throw separately but move forward together to the end of the game.
Play takes place and players attempt to land on squares on the game board that are represented by a card in their hands - so that they receive an extra turn - the rule book fully describing how this process takes place

The object of the game is to join up with a partner, i.e. 'to get married', and afterwards to proceed round the board and to be the first to reach retirement (milestone 64) - thus winning the game.


1 x fully illustrated playing board
5 sets of wooden coloured playing pieces - Each set comprising;
- 1 x male peg
- 1 x female peg
- 2 x single bases
- 1 x large double base
(The playing pieces are named in the rules booklets)
1 x Aunt Lucy wooden playing piece, comprising of a white peg on a black base.
 48 x Amenity milestone cards
 10 x Essential Points milestone cards

14 x wishing bone cards

2 x rules booklet
1 x set of 2 dice


The game components are in lovely condition - the big outer box having served its purpose admirably ! Everything is present, and the box 'inserts' themselves also seem to have no damage....the only fault I can find with the components is that both rulebooks have minor damage to the covers.

The game board is lovely, both on the 'playing' side and the cover...and the only real faults with this incredible game lie in the thick carded outer box 'cover' - the lid and box have splits to the edges, and the lid has also had all 4 corners repaired by sellotape....there is also some 'liquid' stains (water??) on the cover of the lid - this all does not show up well in the above pictures - which have concentrated more on the beautiful game contents.

Up to 11 people can play - with the 'Aunt Lucy' figure catering for an odd number of game players, if required - and please note that because this game weighs just under 3 kgs, the cost for postage has to reflect that - especially outside the UK.
