Trying to remember the name of a game I had in the early 1980's. It was a light hearted look at Russian communism. Each player was a party member trying to better themselves. get an apartment, a car and ultimately a private dachau.

The box was mostly black, with I think the title in red. It had an almost home made feel to it and include a black toy car.

I don't think this is it, but this one came to mind when you were describing it.

No it's a real game. It had a Monopoly type board, you rolled the dice and moved round a track on the outside of the board. The box was a similar shape to Monopoly as well.

I wanted to add it to a Geek list but realised I could not remember what it was called.

We had a games club where I worked at the time and we bought it between a group of us.

Probably Police State (also called Comrades).

That's "dacha," BTW.

That's it, thanks. A bit older than I thought.

It's axiomatic that someone requesting identification of an old game will get at least one detail wrong.

It's there on the bottom left of the board.
