Advantages: simple to play
Disadvantages: couldn't really find any
The Aim of the Game
You start of with a million pounds and to win you have to spend all that money. It sounds easy but believe me, it's not! You win money when you bet on the horses, inherit the stuff, it seems to come from everywhere! So think of the Game of Life reversed.
Who Can Play?
It's for 2 to 5 players from age 8 to adult. It's a great family game to play in the evening instead of watching the box!
Little plastic things that could be lost quite easily if you're not careful!
Ways of Losing Money (and Getting it Back)
The Lottery square: here you place money £5000 to be precise. However if you are directed to go to it, you get all the money in the tray.
Hotels: you can buy one of these per game BUT you get paid rent if someone lands on it!
Horses: place a bet and hope to lose! You spin the horse wheel and if your horse loses great. But if it wins, then you get your bet back plus your winnings!
Casino: again you either win or lose!
Landing on an oponant: great! pay them money in compensation!
Double Six: Boo! you win money.
This was in the cottage we stayed at so I can't really help there
The more players you have in this game the longer and better it will be. I spent many an hour playing this with my friend. I found the aspect of losing money instead of winning quite refreshing. It's definitely worth a look if you want something different to play with the family, and if you do have young childre, they could buddy up with a grown up and help in the decisions as to what to do. So noone gets left out.
