Interplanetary

A game invented by Art Widner and shown for the first time to The Stranger Club in late 1942 and first played at Boskone III. It included elements of Auto Race and Monopoly and added complication such as planets which moved in their orbits. The game took an enormous amount of time to play: 8 or 12 hours or even more.

Years later, Bill Evans, Bob Pavlat, and Ted White changed the rules enough to make it possible to play the game in an evening.

It still didn't catch on.
