I played it back in elementary school. Each player was some sort of multinational corporation trying to get rich off minerals and gemstones. I remember each mineral had a value attached to it. Cobalt was a 9. Emeralds were 12. Diamonds might have been 15. Low enders were things like Iron and Copper.

It was played on a world map. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

I suspect it may be Wealth of Nations.

I'm afraid it's not any of those. The map was a typical Mercator projection. I think Uranium was one of the things you could mine as well. I'm definitely sure about Cobalt being #9.

I played it in the early 80s at a school.
