Nice (Nyse)! You can make tens of millions of dollars in ten-minute’s time on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), as long as you are willing to exploit hard working regular people around the world by creating, manipulating, or collapsing speculative markets, aggressively investing, restricting investments, and forcing stock swaps on others . . . none of which is very nice.

In the ironically mean game of "Nyse," you and up to nine other players compete as investment bankers playing the New York Stock Exchange to make more money than anyone else. "Nyse" is a lightning fast game full of very difficult choices, strategy, timing, and bluffing. As you claim stock holdings in chemicals (blue), technology (yellow), fossil fuels (red), and foodstuffs (green), the value of those holdings increase as a result of the demand. But beware of speculative markets, because a market bust, intentionally caused by one of the other players, could drop the value of all of your holdings to nothing!

This is my favorite filler game. It is really fast (ten minutes play time) and casual, simple to learn, but still full of incredibly tough choices. The game can be made out of 50 chips (different colors and several marked on one side) or as a deck of cards. Either way, with a case and instruction sheet, it usually ends up weighing just under 100 grams (depending on the quality of the chips).

Though it works well from 1 to 10 players, it gets more random with huge groups. I recommend people play a few times with 3 or 4 (maybe 5) to get the best appreciation of how everything works, and then try playing 1 or 2 player games after they understand the art of the game's brinkmanship.
