Hello everybody!

I am about to get the game, can anyone tell me the size of banknotes? I am looking to sleeve those cause I don't want them to wear down.

Best regards,
Max

Playing with money is a mess, playing with sleeved paper money... I feel the pain...
Do yourself a favour: build some poker chips. I you don't want to spend much, a cheap plastic set of poker chips costs as much as sleeves for the paper money, and it is so much better! Clay Poker Chips would be perfection, but in that case the cost is bigger.

Last week I actually played a PowerGrid game with money sleeved, it wasn't such a mess, I'd say it worked well.

If you already tried it, and for you is ok, as you prefer :) !
For me playing with sleeved money would be... unpleasant, to say the least :)

I'd rather use some substitue money. For example money from The Gallerist, Vinhos or anything else.

But the cheesy paper money is part of those games' charm. Nothing says "I've made hundreds of thousands of dollars" quite like an unsatisfyingly light handful of flimsy paper.

Then again, I grew up on paper money.

I just love the feel of a nice weight poker chip. I can't think of the last time I used paper money in a game

To answer your initial question: the banknotes are exactly 5,5 x 10 cm.

You got loonies and toonies from the ATM? Or did you get strange looks when you explained why you needed them to a cashier or teller?

I shouldn't have read this thread - now I want to build a bank out of Canadian Tire money.
