Browsing Ebay, I noticed this description for a sale of Wealth of Nations. I've cut out the irrelevant parts.
Quote:
WEALTH OF NATIONS from TableStar Games. Mint --- this is my copy which I'm selling as there is no point to keep it and try and play it again with these guys here. No one (except for me) will use the sheets to figure out what they are trying to do. Why? Because they all are trying to figure out how to mess up everybody else and are afraid they would reveal something to somebody else. So it takes them forever to figure out their turns as they have to refigure what they're doing and then check out what everyone else is doing and try to figure out how they can mess up every other player in the game. Played twice with everything sorted into plastic bags and I've printed up a couple help sheets. Maybe you've got a better group than I do.


The seller is listed as being in Motor City, Michigan, which last I knew was Detroit.

I'm also happy to say my group played this with 4 players for the first time in about an hour and a half.
Ho ho ho.

Why doesn't he give every player a screen to hide their sheet?

Hey, I know that guy!

His group has a metagame they have to play to even decide what game they are going to play involving wish lists and vetoes

I can attest that he is a fine and honorable eBay seller, though.

Except that he calls a game that has been played twice "mint".
