This game seems to be the third put out by the Economist, the others;
Political Capital: The Economist board game 1998 and some time before that "Crisis".

Anyone have access to the magazines (edit: newspaper/newsmagazine) for more info on these games?

Political Capital was in the Christmas 1998 issue.

Given the timings of the latest 2 games released by The Economist I am guessing that the ?first game "Crisis" was released in the late 1980s. Probably the Christmas edition of 1987 following "Black Monday", Monday, October 19th. Google give nothing quick. Probably a job for the library.

It was a while ago now and maybe I'm mis-remembering the details but I think I went through the microfilm version of The Economist for 1987 at the State Library of W. Australia ad the game was not to be found.

Maybe a centre-fold that contained the game was not included in the microfilm version?

I'm using this thread as a notebook for my attempts to find "Crisis".

Bad news. The online version of The Economist that the State Library of Victoria has The economist [electronic resource].

doesn't even have "Credit Crunch" in its included articles. Which is somewhat touched on through in "Credit Crunch Dec 18th 2008 | from the print edition" at http://www.economist.com/node/12798307

And now I am wondering if the International Edition(?) hardcopies of old issues will have "Crisis". It wasn't where I thought it would be in the Melbourne Australia microfilm.
