Let's Go To College is a unique non-electric board game produced by The Electric Game Co. of Holyoke, Massachusetts. Game inventor Jim Prentice (1909-2005) founded the company and designed nearly all of its products. Unique for that time period, his name appears on every box cover as well. The Let's Go To College game employs a gambling technique, with chips, to allow players to complete courses as a freshman, a sophomore, a junior, and a senior. Prentice employed illustrators to produce bright graphics in his games and utilized high quality materials as well.
