In the mid to late 80's I came across this Board Game, stored 6 of them in my mothers attic, left them for years and just recently resurfaced. I tried to research it with very little luck. I believe they are complete prototypes in very good condition, never been played with. They are complete with everything including dice,fake money,instructions and so on.. I contacted a board game collector and he too has never come across it. I was wondering if there is someone out there in the board game world that may know something about its history. I thought that maybe because of its content it was just decided not to start it in circulation. This being just my speculation of course..If someone also has an idea of its value it will let me know if they were worth saving for soo many years. Thank you

    I also have one of these games that I found a few years ago at a garage sale here in the Denver metro area. Mine looks like it may have been played once. To my surprise, upon closer examination of the board I found the signature of the creator, George L Miller. I have never come across this game elsewhere or really anything much on the internet at all. I don't even find it registered on gaming sites documenting games, which strikes me as odd. Maybe one of us should do that, eh? Miller appears to be from nearby Boulder, CO, but I find very little on him or his company Creative Media Productions, PO Box 9002-439, Boulder, CO, 80301. His copyright was found here -> http://www.faqs.org/copyright/provide-for-the-common-defense-from-the-preamble-to-the/ . I have not played this game yet, but plan to. It looks interesting that you must become a dealer and then successfully convince the dealers for you that you are rehabilitated.

    Mike G, Thank you for sharing your story and the information you have found. Keeping this item posted on Collectors weekly may spark up some more leads. You having a signed game is awesome. I am continuing to research it with hopes that I find out everything about it. At one time, I was planning on selling a couple them on e-bay or craigslist but have decided to hold off on that idea., If you don't mind me asking you say you purchased yours at a garage sale, would you be able to tell me how much you payed for your game at that time. Well hopefully you receive this message and can get back to me. I would love to contact you directly with any new information I do find. Once again, Thank you
