Each player is a newspaper editor and has a front page to make up by collecting four breaking news stories from around the world. The breaking stories, and other instructions, are conveyed by the use of a telex machine. Players must send their team of four reporters to major cities in the world.
A Scoop-like game with some similar features (e.g. a front page to fill and a telex machine replacing the telephone) but the addition of the world map provides an international dimension.
The front pages are facsimiles from the Telegraph, Guardian, Express and Mirror. Interesting to note that the Telegraph cost 7p in 1975.

Information about MB Games
Milton Bradley established his eponymous printing company in 1860. To grow the business Bradley created The Checkered Game of Life and its success set a new direction for the company. On its centenary In 1960, MB Games updated its very first game and simplified the title - Game Of Life remains popular even today.
MB is perhaps best known for producing action games, particularly aimed at children, such as Mousetrap and Operation, and also TV tie-ins. For the family and adult market it produced games such as Yahtzee, Go For Broke and HeroQuest and Bermuda Triangle. In response to the rise of computer games in the early 1980s, MB marketed board game versions of popular arcade titles, such as Pacman.
In 1984 MB Games was swallowed up by Hasbro.
