Squatter is a board game that was launched at the Royal Melbourne Show in 1962, invented by Robert C. Lloyd. With more than 500,000 games sold in Australia alone, it became the most successful board game ever developed in Australia.[citation needed] It is a Monopoly-type game in which players each own a sheep station and compete, by judicious trading, to be the first to acquire sufficient irrigated pasture to increase their stock to 6,000 head of sheep, all the while coping with drought, disease, variable livestock prices, and luck. In 1999, a version became available on PC CD-ROM.
