Long before Parker Brothers came out with its Billionaire game, a company in Minnesota called Happy Hour, Inc. came up with its own distinctive version of a Billionaire game. In this 1950's Howard Hanson design, the players race to move their marbles over a 3-D board in a dash to a Uranium Strike. Short cuts and pitfalls lie ahead to both aid and hinder the players in their race. Each marble that successfully registers a Uranium Strike is scored and started over on the board; each marble that falls into Dead Man's Gulch is trapped and lost. The game ends when only one player has any marbles left. High score wins.
Happy Hour also offered players "a BILLIONAIRE CERTIFICATE AND BUTTON" in exchange for ten winning score sheets and $0.25.
