1991: Charles S. Roberts award for Best Pre-World War II board game, Nominee.

Notes:
I believe there are 553 actual counters (based on counter scan images in the gallery and a physical copy I have). The back of the box says 600 but 47 counters are double sized and are counted as 2 counters which is how they get 600 counters.
