The Breakfast Club A Homage to a Cultural Phenomenom The clothes and hair may be out of date, but the teenage angst is the same. The Breakfast Club, the movie, dealt with developing teen identities amidst what society was trying to label them as. Be your own individual. You don't need to fit nicely into society's definitions nor into a size 2 dress or letterman's jacket. Here's the Breakfast Club, the game.

Here are some of the cards to avoid: Bonus cards:
To start out each player selects a game piece, mini pump and balloon.
The balloons each have pictures of people on them.
*Each player must attach their balloon to their pump; the caliper to the balloon and pump it 8 times before the actual game starts. You will start off with a skinny character on your balloon and your goal is to get the fattest (the balloon will pop!)
The breakfast cards will be shuffled and stacked in the designated location on the game board.
Each player rolls the dice and the highest number goes first. Afterwards the players will choose to either go in a clockwise or counter-clockwise order.
Set the timer which will last for 20 minutes
Each player will roll the dice at every turn (unless you land on a "skip turn" space) and move your game piece the appropriate number of spaces on the game board.
Most of the spaces you land on will have directions that the player must follow.
EX: Go to the Gym; Add 2 pumps; Take away 2 pumps; Get out of gym card; money
The first player that has a popped balloon because of the pointy caliper tips WINS!
When you collect money cards by picking up a "BREAKFAST CARD" you can save those cards. You use them when a player lands on a store of some sort. When the player lands on the store they MUST buy something from the store. The store just gives the player a chance to either get ahead with gaining weight (Candy Stores) or fall behind with losing weight (going to the gym). The player may also choose a card that just gives directions to either go to the gym; get out of the gym; give yourself 2 pumps or lose 2 pumps. ** All of these are ways for you to get ahead in gaining weight** Breakfast Cards & Money Instructions
"The Breakfast Club", the game, definitely has an original and unique concept that no other game can match. This game goes against what is considered to be the social norm. It celebrates the normally forbidden delicacies of life; things that people usually say "no" to because of these norms. In order to succeed in the game you do not have to follow what you think to be as society’s formula of success and acceptance. The beauty of the game is for each individual to find their strength to say "no" to social norms, and instead learn to love the flavored things in life. This game is affordable to all groups of people and is a wonderful way to gather up your family for a little entertainment. Say "no" to any negativity - learn to be comfortable with your body and say "yes" to being yourself.
