Ok usually these don't stump BGG at large, but this one just might. I am looking for a game that was about vocabulary, or possibly grammar or spelling. It was an especially large box in the Monopoly style. The cover was yellow, and maybe had a cartoon guy with his head opening up to reveal all kinds of knowledge, kind of like the logo for Scattergories. It had a huge Monopoly type board that was mostly just a track around the edge. Came with maybe 4 decks or boxes of cards, and each player got a wooden block with 10 or so slots to hold their cards in. I got this as a present in the late 80's or early 90's and I get the impression it was a small print run, not from a major boardgame company. Anyone have any clue??

Nope, neither of those. The art and fonts were much more rudimentary. The box was very wide (more than 3 feet). Also, the game was definitely in English.

Thanks for trying! I have a feeling it isn't on BGG... I would ransack my parents' attic to add it to the database but I have a feeling they threw the game out long ago.
