Description

Money Bags is a game of international finance. You're given $1 million and a year of game time to try to make it grow. You can invest in foreign currencies, international stocks, international goverment bonds, gold, lumber, and commercial property. You'll have to keep an eye one current events and how they'll change the markets, exchange rates, stock values, real asset values, shipping costs, and more. In other words, it's an almost complete international finance simulator.

The game has four skill levels. The higher the level, the more unpredictable and faster things happen. On any level but the lowest, you compete against the legendary "Gnome of Zurich," who's an international finance expert. The game does have a pause function, and you can also continue playing after your year is up. It also tracks the ten highest scores for each skill level.

Trivia

The manual instructs users to manually make disk one bootable by using the SYS command and then copying COMMAND.COM to it. (This was a common instruction given to gamers for some games written before 1990 -- not everyone had a hard drive, and doing this eliminated the need to keep a boot disk handy. --Ed.)
