Hi!
I'm working on a game where greed is great. It is card based and players collect icons of 4 types.
- top hat
- champagne
- gem
- ?

what is the 4th thing that could symbolize greedy wealth? Preferably something that can be illustrated in a simple way since the icons are kind of small.

Any ideas would be very appreciated!
Thanks!

Mistresses

Edit
Depending on the time period... Concubines, courtesans

Thanks, money ($) is of course a central thing. However, I forgot to mention that money is the central currency that is used in the game...
Good idea though!

The time period is modern times. Mistresses could work...

Sports car/ luxury car? Should be easy to do a small image of something expensive looking.

Last Will has players scrambling to burn lots and lots of money fast. The game employs various resources and uses these icons to indicate them: Properties (either mansions/manor houses or farms), horses, dogs, female companions, and personal chefs (chef's hat). Moreover, players come across cruises (ship's wheel), dinners (cutlery), horse-drawn cabriolet (cabriolet - perhaps substitute with a modern supercar for your game?), servants (top hat), and entertainment (drama masks).

Junta: Viva el Presidente! (and probably also its predecessor, Junta - I haven't played it) is a game about wannabe presidents that try to grab as much for themselves, as possible: Swimming pools, helicopters, supercars, suitcases full of cash, yachts, tennis courts, and even personal zoos are tokens of success in this universe.

Other items might be: Drinks trolleys, Cuban cigars, private planes, butlers, Rolls Royces, Rolex wristwatches, golf and tennis gear, private club memberships, cufflinks, boas, furs, and leather gloves.

A spooky looking contract?

A fancy cane?

A pinstripe suit?

An animated gif of Scrooge McDuck diving into piles of questionably legitimate gold coins?

A bank?

A stuffed wallet?

That doesn't seem like a good idea. I would not want to play a game where you collect mistresses & I doubt I'm the only person. Of course it's your game and your free to do what you like...

Well, if not a $, then how about a coin? A chest? A locked vault door?

I also think collecting mistresses is a bad idea. Just sayin'.

Gold? (gold bar symbol - tons of examples of those symbols online)

But... I'd be really disappointed if you don't name this game:

Make Greed Great Again!

Thanks for all great ideas!
I'll probably go with Art or Cigars. They convey that personal prestige that these icons should represent.

Cars and Mansions are great, but you may actually get them as individual cards in the game so they are already represented.

Again, thank you!!
