Jones in the Fast Lane: CD-ROM Description

Jones in the Fast Lane is a game developed and published by Sierra in 1991. The objective of the game is to attain as much money, happiness, status and education as necessary to win. These would be set up by the players before the game began.

The game world is represented by a board game-like ring of buildings in squares, resembling a cross between Monopoly and Hasbro's Game of Life. The player, represented by a coloured marble on the board, is free to move around, only limited by the time remaining per turn. Time is used up by moving to a new location and performing actions like working, attending class, or resting.

Each turn would represent a week of the player's life (more like a year of real life). The player would only get decide what their character would do during the week. On the weekends, the character would experience some ramdom "Oh What a Weekend" event and spend a random amount of money (usually less than $150). Some of these are pretty humourous such as, "You went to Las Vegas in a $20,000 car and came back in a $200,000 Greyhound bus."
