Picture of the Day: The D.C. Journalist Board Game

Thanks to FamousDC, a blog dedicated to the quirks of Washington media, you too can play the game of Beltway journalism.

Can you climb to the top of D.C. media celebrity, building your career on a mountain of Drudge hits and influential retweets? Can you survive getting yelled at by flacks and burned by sources, drowning your sorrows at the Capitol Hill bar Kelly's Irish Times?

Aspiring political journalists should probably play a round or two before embarking on the real adventure. The game asks up front: "Can you make it as a DC journalist, while keeping your dignity intact?" If anyone knows the answer, please contact me immediately at cgood@theatlantic.com.
