I don't remember much to go by. It would have been produced roughly in the mid 70's, give or take a few years. It was by a big game company - Milton Bradley, Hasbro. The theme was big business (I think). I think you moved your game piece around the outside of the board, ala Monopoly. There were cards involved - you'd pick up a card and follow the action. You would pick up a card if you landed on a square to pick up a card. I think Embezzlement was one of the cards. I'll add more if I remember more. Not a lot to go on I admit. Good luck gamers!!

Billionaire is the game that comes to mind.

Lie, Cheat & Steal sounds like the one. There are cards which include embezzellement (cannot even hope to spell that one correctly). It is a monopoly like board with 10 spaces on each side with three tracks that are off-shoots.

Ah, I remember that one!!! In retrospect probably not a great game for kids, where winning depends on your being able to lie convincingly.

Thanks for all your help! I guess it was Billionaire. I remember it a little differently - I thought it had a darker game board and more professional style looking cards. As I look at the pics however, I think it was Billionaire. Mostly, I thought the picture of the businessman was a drawing, but I certainly remember his body position - and that's the image in my brain. Well done. Thanks again.
