The Mad Magazine Game, titled MAD Magazine: the "What-Me Worry?" game on the cover, is a board game produced by Parker Brothers in 1979. Gameplay is similar, but the goals and directions often opposite to, that of Monopoly; the object is for players to lose all of their money. Play proceeds to the first player's right and the first player is determined by a left-handed roll for the lowest number. The game includes cards, money, dice, and tokens, and the game board features Alfred E. Neuman and illustrations from Mad magazine. By design, no conclusive strategy exists for the game, since even if a player is winning, several spaces and cards direct players to exchange money or chairs with others, causing advantages to be lost instantly.
Each Player starts with $10,000. The board is Monopoly like with 2 inner tracks that can also be used. Play is counterclockwise and you must roll the dice with your left hand. Spaces and the ever present chance cards send you elsewhere, make you pay money (good), make you get money (bad), switch seats with someone else or exchange money with another player. First to lose all their money wins.
