  • Each Set contains a Game Board, 120+ Playing Cards, 200 Royalty Checks , and Three (3) Dice (2 Situational, 1 Royalty Roll).

Situational Dice - On each turn, Players roll two (2) lettered Situational Dice instructing them to draw cards from Bid Round (B), Political (P), Loan (L), and/or Discovery (D) card piles.

  • Western Tasmania, Australia (Gold Mine)
  • Persian Gulf, Qatar (Natural Gas Field)

Discovery - Discovery Cards state whether there has been a Successful or Failed Discovery at a Bid Round Exploration.

  • Each Bid Round Exploration lists the Chance of Discovery (33%, 50%, 66%)
  • The Discovery Cards reflect the Chance of Discovery. For example, if Nigeria has a 50% Chance of Discovery, there is (1) Successful Nigeria Discovery Card and (1) Failed Nigeria Discovery Card in the pile.

  • After a Failed Discovery, the Player who owns the Exploration must return it to the Discovery Pile for the Tax Write Off listed on the Bid Round Card!

Loans - Loan Cards let players take out bank loans ranging from $50 Million to $500 Million that must be repaid after 2 turns.
