Mimmicks the stock trade -huge interactive fun!

Cons: maybe some fast counting when things get close to being able to declair your hand but my hint for this is count your cards first - that way you know when you have filled your hand or all but one that you have the set- other than that in terms of cons- none really!!

Pros: huge fun, lots of yelling -you can opt to change this and do finger bidding for a quiet game. This is a classic and should be a staple game. We finish the game night off with this now and then as a fun wind down -kind reminds you its all in good fun.

Excellent game! As a child, I was undefeated at this game and also at Landslide. Maybe that's why I like it ...

An exciting family or party game. Tends to get very noisy with everyone yelling at once, but that just adds to the fun.

A touch of gambling makes this game a little better than your average roll-and-move game.

Instead of spinning... just use a four sided die.

I played this game long ago, and barely remember it well enough to justify a rating, but I know I replayed it many times. Rating therefore probably 5 to 7.

June 17th, 2007 , I played my 3rd or 4th game. It's more fun with 4 people as we played with 2. I enjoy the game as it has some interesting aspects to it with bidding the analyzer. With that said, it's sided for luck as the strategy is pretty limited. Perhaps the bidding amounts is the only strategy. It will be hard to find this out of print game, however I wouldn't go out of your way. If you know someone who has it, give it a try. It's a good short game that takes <5min to learn and about 30min to play.

My grandmother had this one in her game cupboard, and I used to love pulling it out. It had the little writing pads that erased by lifting the top leaf, the cool results spinner (that ALWAYS seems to end up breaking, sooner or later), and those distinctive dollar-sign tokens. The game itself was OK, but you couldn't beat those bits back in the '70s.

This game had potential. The auctions were very interesting. This was the skill part of the game. The game had some atmosphere. As a teen , I remember almost feeling that I was a billionnaire wheeling and dealing , but not quite. I always felt that the game had potential but was not quite there. Even as a teen I felt there was something missing. The spinner I felt was boring and took away from the game.
Nowadays we have card driven games, in those days we had a path around the board to drive the game. Both are basically the same sort of mechanism ( a random way to limit the choices of a player on a given turn). Overall billionaire is a not bad auction game and has a theme that is interesting. What is needed is more atmosphere (more real business decisions) without getting too fiddly.

I've been on this site for 10 years now, and I'm far from sick of games, but I think I am, to some degree, sick of learning too many new games. I'm also tired of playing 4+ hr multiplayer games, but I'll still happily play really long games 2 player.

[25-50 plays] There are 2 very different games named Billionaire, the one I am rating here is a financial type game. --- We enjoyed this game as kids. I am grateful we at least had some alternatives to Monopoly, although we still played it too much.

Most recent play in late 70's.
