You are offerding on a vintage Parker Brothers game. This game is “The Amusing Game of Boom or Bust”, a Parker Trading Game, best for 3 or 4 players, copyright 1951. The game comes in its original box with two sheets of instructions. According to the instructions;
How the Game is Played: Players move around the board according to the thro of dice. Properties such as Beauty Parlor, Department Store, etc. are bought and sold at prices that rise and fall quite unexpectedly depending on whether the conditions are NORMAL BOOM times or BUST (depress times). The game is quick moving and amusing. The game ends when all but one player becomes bankrupt and this surviving player WINS THE GAME. If the players prefer, a time limit may be set at the end of which time the player owning the greatest amount of property and cash (when added together) WINS THE GAME.
The equipment consists of illustrated game field with a track of “spaces” running directly underneath pictures of the Properties, dice, moving pieces or tokens of different colors, cards cut in the shape of a “T” which identify each property owner, money, and a unique removable panel printed BOOM on one side and BUST on the other side.
As you can see, the instructions do not give the quantity of each of the pieces but this is what is included with the game:
Box, top and bottom, 5 cardboard trays that holds the pieces
Board & removable panel with BOOM on one side, BUST on the other, two wooden pins that hold it in place
4 different wooden tokens-one yellow, one red, one blue, one light green

Approx. 90-blue 100 dollar bills
