Over-Draughts

16 Dec

od1The ONLY Game of High-Finance, Big Risk Banking and Corporate Take-Overs all played out on a wee little Board. KenMGames’ most expensive product to date! This one nearly bankrupted us in the field testing alone. Definitely a fun time, but a little too rich for my tastes!

Ages: 7(ish)+

Players: 2

Interesting Features: A little like Checkers (Draughts) and a little like Chess but nothing much like High-Finance, Big Banking, or Corporate Take-Overs. The twist is in the playing of interest earned (enemy pieces captured) or calling out a loan to see you to the end of the game!

Extras Needed: A bunch of coins (Pennies, Nickels, Dimes, Quarters, “Loonies”, and “Toonies” … for those of you in other countries those are $1 and $2 respectively. Don’t fret, you can usually pick them up for about $0.25 US!)

It didn’t take more than a minute or two to put both ideas together and I think the result of those grueling moments speaks for itself. Now if I could only remember what I did with all that change …
