    Description

    "Welcome to the Silicon Valley! You'll soon be traveling through the Santa Clara Valley on its main highway, earning income, buying a new car, buying a home, and making investment decisions. Naturally, you can succeed or fail; just like reality, some of the decisions are up to you."

    Many elements in this game are real businesses -- Intel, HP, Varian, Memorex, San Jose Mercury, Stanford, San Jose State, Santa Clara University -- plus local major banks, auto dealers, real estate companies -- real places. Months of research planning and cooperation and their participation. No one was ever charged to be in the game. It really played well. It would have to be done by 4 locals to understand how it had a strategy and used math skills other than counting bills.

    One person surmised -- Appears to be a conversion of 'The Game of Life' to a local region similar to the multitude of '-opolys' but never played it.
