The most interesting thing I’ve ever done while playing hooky from school was stay home and play games with my friends. I’ve certainly never stolen a Ferrari or sang in a parade, but there’s always my next dice roll. The Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Board Game lets us timid Cameron Frye and goody-two-shoes Jeanie Bueller types see what it’s like to live spontaneously from a safe distance. Created by Maxin Dalton as part of the Gallery 1988 art show “The Road to Shermer: A Tribute to John Hughes,” the game recreates the most epic skip day ever in board game form—complete with dice, rules and playing pieces of Ferris, Cameron and Sloane.
