Anyone have an idea what game this was? I truly don't remember the name. I'm a bit short on details for this one, but I'm hoping someone has an idea :-)

I played a game as a kid (late 80's or early 90's, though the game could have been old when I played it) that was a little bit like Monopoly with a space theme. You bought planets or somesuch, and I think you were able to charge people money for landing on them.

I remember the board wasn't a big circle like in monopoly, it was a series of circles - and when moving you would sometimes continue around the same circle of planets, or other times follow a little path onward to the next circle of planets. I believe all the little circles were in a big loop of some sort.

Any ideas on this one?

Three little bears. One with a light. One with a stick. One with a rope. A spooky old tree. Do they dare go into that spooky old tree? Yes. They dare.

Definitely Solarquest. Or Spaceopoly which is a revised and simplified edition of Solarquest.
