Mine a Million (aka The Business Game) is a board game previously published by Waddingtons. The game is named after the economic business of mining tin and gaining profit by transporting this to markets near and far. The 'million' bit of the name relates to the target profit.
The game is set in a developing country where transport economy is vital. In this country therefore the 'Minister for Transport' has decreed that all transport must travel fully loaded. This brings in the concept of subcontracting.
