tells about this edition:
"The game shows color groups of companies of
various Romanian cities.
The Rules are on the inside of the lid. Inside the box is a little note
of the manufacturer asking the user to test the game on irregularities. Those
with the best tip are promissed a reward of 2.000 to 10.000 Lei, being about a
monthly salary for a factory workerin the communist period!
The game goes with 5 banknotes, the currency of which oddly enough is Ecu.
