I played this game last weekend with my family. In norwegian it is called 'Fang røverne' (Catch the thieves). It's a Ravensburger game from 1988. No matter what I search BGG for, I can't find it.

Bought this game myself (probably around when it was published), and is one of the few games remaining from my original bout of gaming.

Har du sett på Ravensburger sin side?

Der skal alle Ravensburger spill i databasen stå.

Finner du det ikke kan du legge det til databasen.

I can see little red buildings, so I'm guessing it's more like monopoly.

Its English name is Inspector Higgins and it isn't like Risk or Monopoly. 1 player plays the Inspector and the others play the theives. The theives have to find the treasure (hidden in one of the houses) and get it back to base without being caught by the Inspector. The two sides use different dice to move. Its a fun kids game.

ad79: Yeah I listed all the Ravensburger games, but when 'teufen' correctly identified it as Inspector Higgins, I saw why I didn't find it. The box I have got blue borders and looks a bit different from the pictures.
