About this deal

The Antique Game, by Wilfred Paul Heath 1936, believed to be the prototype to the Battleship game he created.

To get your ore to the market you have to drive it along the road in a lorry, or take it via the canals in a boat. Introductions are limited to motor finance, CarMoney Limited will pay us a fixed commission per paid out deal. Some cards, as I already mentioned, cause ore stacked at a pitheads to be destroyed but that’s of little or no consequence for the game if little or no ore is stacked at pitheads.Again, of no consequence if there are no ships on the board but if someone looses a big cargo of ore when the boat goes down, then that can determine the winner of the game, all down to a dice roll and a card draw and that sucks.

The objective is to make one million dollars by selling units in the neighbouring landmass containing three ports.

Mine a Million or The Business Game is a 1965 board game for 2-6 players [1] previously published by Waddingtons. So once the ore starts flowing you can take great delight in hiring more lorries than you need and leaving your opponents with ore piling up at their pitheads and grinding their teeth in frustration while they worry about an event card coming up that’ll destroy unsold ore on the board.

This money can be used to pay for more transport (lorries, barges and ships) and a second mine derrick (to increase production). The game we currently have for sale, pictured on this page, is in very good condition with all of the original components.

They each start with one cool little plastic drilling rig on the map board and they start each turn by rolling a dice: on a one or a six their rig produces some ore and they have to take a random event card. Business board game dealing with the world of mining and transport, showing how industry makes money and how they can lose it.Trust me that face-up is best: there’s still plenty of chaos and excitement in the game but suddenly, rather than having your game torpedoed out of the blue by a bad event card, strategy can include an element of calculated risk. But there’s another catch - barges only get a permit to leave port if they’re fully loaded and if, as is the usual case, you don’t have enough ore to fill it up you have to transport other players ore for them. Perhaps Waddingtons were seeking ride the coat-tails of Monopoly, or maybe trying to make the game sound like a classy, upmarket pass-time for merchant bankers. Again you can “steal” other people’s ore for which they must pay you so, again, you can take ore away from players badly in need of pounds and sell it on their behalf for dollars that they don’t need at all. Judith, I recently acquired an estate lot, which includes a print of what appears to be four gentlemen (scholars?
