When I was growing up in the 1980s, there were two board games that I played but cannot find the names of them.

One was a "real estate-like" board game where you bought junkie properties, and one of the properties was called "No Takers Acres."

The other board game was played on an electric game board. It was like Stratego BUT instead of a "spy" their piece was called "agent." And the biggest difference was that instead of declaring the value of a piece when an opponent moved into it's space, each player took their piece and moved it onto a special indicator on the side of the game board which would tell you who had the higher value (without revealing each's value to the opponent).

QUESTION: Does anyone know the name of either of those games? I have done many searches on your website but have not never come across them.

Thank you so much, truly.

First game was Trust Me perhaps? The "No Takers Acres" sounds really familiar to me and I have that game (but never played it).
