Uranium Rush

board game

After World War II, American interest in the details of nuclear warfare and nuclear science grew. Uranium was the miracle element and a potential prospector could get rich quick. A game, made during this era of the Cold War, allowed players to be prospectors, complete with electric "geiger counters." The atom symbol is also displayed on the box cover. Apart from the subject, this is a typical "get rich quick" type game.
