has a humorous & informative podcast called Stacking Benjamins about personal finance and planning, and he invited me on to talk about boardgames. This guy knows money, is a long distance runner, appreciates Bloom County, rates Big City a 10, and has listened to Boardgames To Go since my beginnings. All good in my book! Too bad he lives halfway across the country from me--I'd like to play some games with him. Maybe the two of us will meet next year at BGG.con.

With the holidays coming up, games can be a good thing to bring out with family. For a long time they've had a reputation of being economical forms of entertainment. Whether that's still true for those of us with hundreds of titles in our collection hardly matters--we're having fun!

On the episode he asked me to give some quick suggestions for games about finance, as well as some party games. I thought it over and came up with For Sale, Chicago Express, and Power Grid, followed by Telestrations, Say Anything Family Edition, and Dixit.
