Money and Team Games

Our topics today are Money and Team Games.

Money makes the world go around according to a musical that is in my head right now. It's a pretty important thing in life, but how is it dealt with in the world of board games?

I love team sports and I love coop board games, but one area I feel is lacking in our hobby is good team based board games. I want to find out if this is an area that needs more games?

Hope you enjoy the board game chat :0)

Money and Team Games Questions Will Include:
  • Which game in your collection would you say was most value for money? 
  • What is your favourite game with a "most money at the end wins" win condition?
  • Do you feel board games are worth the money? Would you pay more for them?
  • Do you own any games you play in teams? Which ones?
  • Do you prefer all vs all, all vs the game (coop), 1 vs many or balance teams in games? Why?
If you have a question you would like me to ask the board game community, drop me a tweet  @BoardGameHour before we start and I'll see if I can add it in :0)
