This game is now #1 on The Hotness list on BGG. How would have guessed that a year ago.

Aye, strangeness abounds.

Time to revisit the fun episode of Flip the Table podcast instead of finding/playing this game.

I still find the game more enjoyable than Secret Hitler and Dead of Winter. At least it doesn't pretend to be anything more than a mediocre game.

I have left this at the thrift store dozens of times. I should have stocked up, and sold them all now. I guess this is while I am not a business mogul.

Still puts it above the usual mass-media IP boardgame. Players who can keep track of where the money is going (and hence who's winning the game) will beat those who can't. If all players are skillful enough to know who's winning, then the game becomes a matter of negotiation.

Sorta like Bohnanzha, but with orange hair, rather than wax beans. laugh

I'm sure it's mediocre. But Secret Hitler was a bit fun.

Now I know jokes, I've told many of the most important jokes of our time, this joke, its a great joke, one of the best. But you missed it, a yuuuge laugh has been missed.

Basically the initial quote and then my reply was a play on how Trump speaks

Yes. Many people have approached me and told me this.

You know, while off topic, I've gotta say I'm happy someone else thought Dead of Winter was totally mediocre. It's like Battlestar Galactica-lite, with a bit of extra brute force thrown in. Unless there's no bad guy, and then it's just fetch quests with different names. Bleh.

Slightly back on-topic... I'd hope for a rerelease of this game, with mechanisms for profiting from bankruptcy. Though i guess that's just Small (Hands) World.

Also thinks DoW was mediocre, resource gathering game. BSG was so much better.

If the company still own the game and still can call it Trump, why not? But some new mechanics is maybe a must.

I'm not familiar with the hotness system in bgg, could someone help me understand why this game is so high up now?
There is not a huge amount of new content on the forums of the game, no new images. It is the new number of ratings? Visits on the page?

Secret Hitler?


I thought the Trump game and Secret Hitler were both the same game? We've used the names interchangeably for a while now...

Sounds like some of you have experience playing this game. I'll give you that, it's a lot of experience, but it's bad experience. Believe me.

the sequel could be an epic legacy game in which you run for president.

You get to do things like pimp slap a weak republican field of hopeful president candidates. Play the ratings mongering media like fiddle to put your face in every home in America 24/7. Fool poor white people into thinking they can get jobs that are now done by computers and robots. Game the electoral colleges and ultimately defeat the socialist big bad end boss "crooked Hillary" and earn the approval of a former grand wizard of the Ku klux klan.

id play that game.

I think its the visits, I could be wrong. But yeah, I'd say lots of folks looking up Trump games on here.

I was able to pick up the 1989 and the 2004 versions. The game itself is really not that bad. It's a good negotiation game.

Can the world ever make such a great game again?
