For 2 to 8 players.

- Three Dice - These dice control the upward or downward fluctuation
of the Stock, as well as denote the amount and when a dividend is

- Stock Certificates - A set of Stock Certificates of the different
Stocks in denominations of 500, 1000, 2000 and 5000.
- Six Stock Indicators.
- Stock Dividend and Stock Valuations Charts.
Set the Board on the table where it may be seen by all players. Now place
the Stock Indicators on the Stock Quotation Board at $1.00, which is Par
Value of all stocks at the beginning of the game.
Each player is to be given $5000.00 in various denominations.
One of the players is now chosen to be the Broker, who will handle the
buying and selling of all Stocks, as well as the paying of dividends. As
the roll of the dice indicates an upward or downward price change the
price indicators may be moved by any one, preferably the player in the
most convenient position.
TO START THE GAME
Each player has the option of buying up to $5000.00 worth of Stock or
different Stocks as desired. That is, a player may buy all of one
particular Stock, or various amounts of different Stocks, as he/she may
see fit, at their Par Value of $1.00. All players must hold some Stock at
the start of the game. The Broker starts the game. She/He rolls the three
dice together and then passes them to the person on her/his left for their
roll and so on around the table. After each roll of the dice, any player
can move the Stock Indicators on the Quotation Board to correspond with
the roll of the dice, for example: - if, when the dice are rolled they
show Gold up 10, the indicator would then be moved from $1.00 to show Gold
at $1.10. If, when the next person rolls the dice show Gold down 20, the
indicator is moved from $1.10 to .90.
Should the dice when rolled show a Dividend, and the value of that
particular Stock at the time of the roll is at Par Value of $1.00 or more,
a Dividend is paid at that time by the Broker to each player holding that
Stock, according to the amount shown by the roll of the dice. For example:
- If, when the dice are rolled, Gold shows a dividend of 10, each player
holding that Stock is paid $100.00 for each 1000 shares of Gold held. NO
DIVIDEND IS TO BE PAID ON ANY STOCK WHOSE VALUE IS UNDER PAR - $1.00.
BUYING AND SELLING
The Broker and players have the option of rolling the dice one, two or
three complete rounds before allowing the buying or selling of stocks.
This decision is made before the start of the game. In any event, the
buying or selling must take place ONLY prior to the Broker's roll, and all
stocks can only be bought or sold at their present market value, which is
at that time shown on the Stock Quotation Board.
When a Stock reaches or goes over $2.00 a split is declared, and all
players holding that particular Stock receive from the Broker another
Share for each one held, and the value of that particular Stock then goes
back to Par value of $1.00
STOCKS TAKEN OFF THE MARKET
When a Stock drops so that it has no value, all of that particular Stock
held by the players is turned back to the Broker, and the same Stock is
put back on the market at par value of $1.00. Now, any player may re-buy
that Stock again but must pay $1.00 per share which is its new Par Value.
No player can borrow money from another player.
In the event a player loses all his Stocks and money, he may borrow up
to $1000.00 from the Broker. This amount is to be paid back to the Broker
before calculating the player's money on hand at the end of the game, plus
$500.00 borrowing Charge. Any player is allowed to borrow only once during
the progress of the game.
