I am trying to find out more information about a game I just picked up called "Low Bid by clev-R-game". It's copyright 1971.

It says: (from the rules) "LOW BID is a game for 3 to 5 players. Each player is the owner of a company which he names himself. Companies may bid for contracts, purchase raw materials, purchase machinery, borrow money, and manufacture finished products from the raw material. After producing sufficient finished products to complete a contract, the company collects the bid price of the contract, and if the total cost of completing the contract is less than the bid price, the company makes a profit. The object of the game is to be the first company to have a specified amount of money free of debt. Each player or company "turn" represents one month operation of the company." The rules are 7 pages of text and illustrations of the enclosed game items. The items included are plastic chips in red, white, and blue; several pads of "monthly expense sheets", contract bids, bid cards, ; a couple of sheets of calculation aids; contract cards; pads of game money in increments from $500 to $50,000.

The game is in a box approximately 6"x9".

Trying to find out more information on this game or the manufacturer/designer, value, etc. An online search has not yet yielded much of any information.
