Why I Supported: I had been wanting a copy of Speculation for years! I first played a friend's home-made copy, then taught it to others using the library copy at BGG.Con. I jumped on this as soon as I heard about it.

Rating:
Review: I still really like this game. It has a great mix of random chance and planning.
Issues: I was quite irritated by the fact that Queen is a large publisher that had no business using Kickstarter to fund games. But I believed the rhetoric that this wouldn't be printed otherwise. I'm glad I got the KS version because it included the custom dice as used in the original rules. I refuse to play the other way.
Special Note: I am also irritated that the new board's artwork bears a striking similarity to my friend Greg Wilzbach's homemade board, for which he received no credit or compensation.
Plays: 11
Current Status: Owned and cherished.

Gavin suggested we then try a game he had just acquired - Speculation. A commodity speculation game.

The aim of the game is to buy and sell shares based on their varying values (buy low - sell high). The person with the most money at the end of the game is the winner.

In a 4-player games there are 8 shares (3 of each), which players can purchace. Shares track along a pathway that defines their value based on their position, relative to all the other shares.



Each turn, players choose one of 2 available cards (from a hand of 9) and simultaneously reveal to determine which shares rise in value or drop. Players then trade their shares, trying to maximise their profit with each trade. One of the cards in each player's hand is a Bank Holiday, which stops all trading on that round, so your best laid plans to improve your own shares can go astray.

The ebb and flow of the share prices, along with the trading was interesting, but the constant need to track the position of various shares and compare them to look-up tables made the game feel fiddly. At the start fo each round, tokens were drawn from two bags - again, unnecessary stuffing around that delayed the flow of the game and made it last way too long. The tokens could just have easily been managed with two dice.

Lots of guessing and trying to manipulate the market, but always being at the mercy of other players, meant the game felt quite chancy and didn't really flow smoothly.

The descirption says 45 mins, but we played for close to 90 mins and didn't even finish, most of this time was taken-up with the fiddly little bits and constant look-up and evaluation of the changing values, as everyone tried to maximise their own profits.

Nice components, great rules, and an interesting combination of mechanisms, spoilt by too much unnecessary fiddling around. I'm glad I got the chance to play it, but there are far better commodity speculation games out there in my opinion.

5/10 for me.
