Parker Brothers Billionaire Game


Perhaps it's wise that this 1973 game is no longer manufactured. Hard to imagine it being very popular in today's economy. But if you still want a set, so you can pretend to be part of the 1%, check out the link to Amazon below.

Oh, yea, there's no doubt in my mind that any of those 99%ers wouldn't take $1B if it were offered to them.

I owned that game and I distinctly remember almost never playing it. I really should check my depository of dead games, the attack in my dad's house (easily accessible from my old bedroom) to see if any of my old, now defunct, games are still there. My dad likes to go on throwing things out binges, but he usually askes about games or books. I doubt if any of my old stuff is worth much, but still I should check.

What are their names?

It looks like a pretty cool game to me. Like some kind of crazy metaphor for existence itself where the winner becomes a billionaire and the losers are a bunch of whiny babies.

I think you're confusing the game with the OWS crap.

I remember a sorta sinister TV ad for this game, Couldn't find that one.
I always preferred THE GAME OF LIFE! :coolsmile:

We own that game, and its a lot of fun to play. In any case, blaming rich companies is incredibly incomplete: government is what makes their abuses and cronyism work.
