So Original and new to the market that it
Includes an amendment to the Game Rules page 7/26/1993
The Construction Game � is an authorized adaptation of the international award-winning The Farming Game �.
Adapted by a construction engineer, the game gives players a first-hand try at the millions of dollars that can be made in the hard-nosed world of dozer operators and construction bosses.
The Construction Game � teaches the gut-wrenching risks and rewards of the business. Players buy dozers, backhoes, excavators, roadgraders, and scrapers and put them to work. You can purchase trucks, a landfill, a sand and gravel operation, a paving or cement plant. Build your company slowly, or borrow your way into the bigtime where a roll of the dice can bring you financial independence... or send you to the auction yard!
The Construction Game � contains over:
* $5,000,000 in construction cash
* $20,000,000 in equipment and property
* and plenty of I.O.U.'s!!!
For Ages 10 to Adult
Enough Equipment for 6 Players
Warning: This family game is so much fun it may become habit-forming!
In 1992, as luck would have it, a civil engineer named Dave Zimmerman encountered THE FARMING GAME. Dave's business is to provide earthwork estimates to construction contractors. He had also been working on a gaming model to describe the free-wheeling earthwork construction business when he stumbled across THE FARMING GAME. He was so impressed with the business gaming model contained within THE FARMING GAME, he contacted the inventor, George Rohrbacher, and asked George, if through a licensing agreement, that he might be able to adapt THE FARMING GAME to the construction business. After some wrangling, the two struck a deal and in 1993 THE CONSTRUCTION GAME hit the market. Praises for the new game came in from all over the world and the game orders swamped Dave's engineering office that first Christmas. Dave was soon forced to choose between his first love, earthwork engineering, and the game business.
Some years later, George and Dave struck another deal and THE CONSTRUCTION GAME became the property of The Weekend Farmer Co., George's game company. Preparing to manufacture THE CONSTRUCTION GAME in the new library-sized box, George and Ann Rohrbacher treated the game like they'd acquired a classic automobile. They stripped THE CONSTRUCTION GAME down to its chaise and then rebuilt it lovingly, piece by piece, to their exacting factory specifications. The result, as you are soon to see, is one of the best games you'll ever play. A close relative of THE FARMING GAME, to be sure, but THE CONSTRUCTION GAME is no clone! It stands on its own, a raucous good time - a hoot-and-a-half! Enjoy!!!
