Troy and Yvonne McNair started McNair Games in 1999 with one board game (Money, Power, Respect).
Their initial printing was 50,000 units. Within 45 days the games were sold out.
The McNair's didn't have the money to print more copies. [Source: Highbeam, a financial website. While the cash-flow issues sound believable, selling 50,000 games for a new, unknown company sounds very unlikely.]
