I was wondering if anyone has bought the "electronic banking" version of this game for the purpose of using the debit card system in other games. If so, did you find it to be a good way to handle money in games? I would think it might be useful in games like 18xx for those who don't like paper money but also don't want to lug heavy poker chips around. I haven't used it though, so I don't know how well it works. Tell me what you think.
It seemed a neat little add on, but in the end it was sort of an annoyance. In order to pay another player, you must insert each card in the appropriate side. This can become confusing and there can be much controversy surrounding the banker. Players spend most of the game unware of how much money they have. It is really not worth it.
