Be a Berks Billionaire – The 1984 Berks County Monopoly Board Game

Be a Berks Billionaire is a fairly rare board game developed by a citizen of Berk’s County; Joan C. Zintak of Wyomissing. The game was developed and sold in 1984. It was originally intended to have a print run of 5000 games but I don’t know if they ever reached that goal or not as there was apparently some “drama” with the game at the time of completion. Competition issues of some sort? Source

The game features Berks businesses in the place of the standard Monopoly properties. If you have any information about Be a Berks Billionaire or what the story is get in touch. [email protected]

Born and raised in Berks, I am fascinated by the style, design & culture of the mid-late 20th century. I started this website to research and build a collection of the places, things and stories I have heard about my entire life. Read more here.
