Can you give us a background why you want to involve real money in Descent?

Honestly the two teams aren't in equal playing grounds and involving money might sour the game.

It's not about the real money so much as it is about making the game new again for the veterans..The idea started when i wanted to replace the money in the game with real low worth coins for the flavor so it struck me..why not make this a variant with more suspense and drama inside..it's not suggested for all..only for really close friend groups that want to brag about winning something for real..think about it..if it makes u feel better use the money for pizza

Considering how many people celebrated the release of the Road to Legend app for removing the Overlord and creating a co-op experience, I can't see how this idea would do anything but create tension and bad feelings in most players. Competitive games can bring out the worst in a lot of people, especially here in America.

You might be right but i can't stop thinking of the tension in the decisions everyone makes and the strategy that will rise from it..I'm really sorry you feel that way but I love the realism in games..after all u can put a symbolic amount just for the kick of it..If u want u can use the money as a bank for buying new stuff for your table..Be more mature about it..it's only money

I'm assuming this post was directed at me. The quote system helps to clear that up in the future.

I honestly think there's enough tension and weight to your choices in the game from the competitive nature already. For many people winning itself is enough of a reason, adding real money consequences may push them over into bad behavior.

You can't really call the attitude immature, since everything we are discussing is subjective. For myself and the people I know, money is never just symbolic. It's a subject you take seriously when you have to literally budget from month to month to not end up homeless.

I play games with no one I would want to see naked. I'd wager that's more common than you're imagining.
