More Information Edit | History

From a general review of the 1994 New York Toy Fair:

In an elaborate box, one finds a largish board on whose two peripheral tracks are listed 191 countries of the world; their geographic location is shown on the central map. Each player receives 2.5 trillion at start and the same amount can be drawn in credit. Four players are appointed (by dice roll) (Global Banker, Loan officer (sic), Global Aid Director and Real Estate Syndicator, with respective salaries of 40 billion, 25 billion, 10 billion and 20 billion - really tough being a mere Global Aid Director. Their administrative tasks can be inferred. In addition, each player rolls a 12-sided consortium die, determining with which of the 12 consortia each is associated for the duration of the game: Transport, Environment, Manufacturing etc.
So there you have it! Instead of buying Bond Street or Park Lane, you buy Brazil or Pakistan. Instead of building hotels, you try to buy all of the countries in a particular grouping: there are 54 countries in Asia, 52 in Africa, 37 in Europe and so on. It will cost you $213Bn to buy Oceania and $4.355 trillion (!) to buy North America, so it is 20 times more expensive but if someone lands on your countries he has to pay you 500Bn for North America and only 50Bn for Oceania. I'm ignoring the obvious difficulties in trying to land on 54 squares, throwing four six-sided dice each time you move.
