The workmanship of this game of the communist period (1946-1989) is obviously very poor. The big game board is made of heavy cardboard and is in a large envelope. The equipment is in a smaller but solid blue box. The rules say the game is for 2 to 7 players, but apparently the banker is one of them, because there are but 6 tokens. Aim of the game is to save that much that a house can be bought and subsequently furnished with goods like a vacuum cleaner, living room furnishing, kitchen furnishing, radio, washing machine and a sewing machine. The first player to furnish the house and additionally has saved at least 2,000 Ft in saving bonds is the winner. To that end each player get a house-plan in which he has to fill up 6 parts. The house can only be bought at O.T.P. (19), where as the furniture can be bought at space (11). At space (33) one can buy all domestic appliances at Keravill's. Very striking of this "party game" is clearly pedagogic second objective. That does appear from the pedantic phrases of some Chance cards like: Go to the cinema! The movies are instructive and entertaining. Advance to space (17) and pay 10 Ft. Exercise is healthy and entertaining. You should exercise as well. Advance to space (7). Read! Reading is pleasant, useful and cheap entertainment. You have dirtied the street! Pay 10 Ft.
