Ok, this is a long shot!

I used to play this as a kid, so it's dated around the late 70's, it had a travel theme, you had to travel to various places around the world. I seem to recall it had some great bits (like travel documents etc) and that you had to visit Addis Ababa - that's pretty much all I can remember (except thinking it was cool at the time!)

Any ideas??

I loved it as a kid: all that paper money in different currencies...

That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....

I thought I stumbled across this on the geek the other day, bringing memories flooding back.

I thought I remembered it being called Worldwide, but all I can find now is

Wide World

... however, that doesn't look like the one I had, which had a b/w box front, I'm sure.

Both are good suggestions, but sadly no cigar - this is going to eat away at me now!

Travel ?

Sadly no photos on bgg. 1984 might be a bit late, but the travel documents sound similar.
