    Does anyone know where I can find the original DopeWars game? I've found an updated version called Arbitrage, but no sign of the original version.
    TIA

    Thanks for the link Bregent,I'll check it out.
    Actually I didn't search very hard:just on palmgear I think in fact.
    Generally I use Google which is pretty quick and quite useful.

    corb,
    Mine is 129.8 million, but I'm sure someone's beat that too. I remember how amazed I was when I hit $60 million until my buddy got $100 million. I went on a playing frenzy until I topped him.

    240 million! Wow. Now I have motivation to play again. How the heck did you get that much?

    luck, basically

    immediately go to the Bronx and borrow $60,000 from the loan shark (that's the most he'll give you)

    go anywhere else, don't buy anything

    back to the loan shark, borrow enough to fill your pockets with cocaine

    travel around, waiting for the price of cocaine to skyrocket

    if you're lucky, it'll go up early in your "travels," obiously sell immediately

    go to Bronx, pay back loan shark, go to bank and deposit all but enough to buy another full load of cocaine

    repeat process

    unfortunately, you end up with broken legs more often than $200 million

    my high scores after the $240 million are

    (in millions of dollars)
    205.9
    105.1
    85.6
    76.9

    another high profit drug is heroin

    acid is nice if you happen to have pocket space when the market gets flooded -- you can buy it for typically less than $100 and hold it until it is around $4000

    maybe I missed my life's calling....

    Sounds like our strategies are basically the same, except I buy the smaller stuff until I can affore a full load of cocaine. I don't pay back the loan shark until I have more than enough money to buy a full load of cocaine every time. Other than the 129.8 million game, all of my other high scores are between 60-80 million.

    My "HIGH" scores are as follows:

    $113,633,557

    $82,787,007
    $78,720,375
    $73,699,101
    $60,276,483

    Just stick with Coke, Heroin and PCP, and always buy a bigger trenchcoat!!

    did a search for this thread as i've been so addicted to this game I can see the pattern of touch marks on my screen protector where I play this game.

    i completely agree with David Harville about the strategy of immediately borrowing twice to get ~1.9 M and stocking up with the heavy hitting drugs.

    I split my coat up strictly between cocaine and heroin, though, since the payoff for heroin can be big as well. can't be too bothered with PCP because I don't have th focus to concentrate on keeping track of more than 2 item. and yes, always buy bigger coat.

    so here's my high score list (and I'm a bit conflicted as to whether or not I should actually be proud of these numbers):

    $305,354,677
    $245,663,825
    $241,482,478
    $191,743,049
    $143,093,019
