That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....

Is that "first" as in highest rated ?

or "first" as in "earliest" ?

It might be Banking; as described by Orbanes, it seems to fit, but I have yet to track down a copy to check...

Obvious answer to the thread title is 'Life (according to Capatalism)'..


But that's not as funny as the first reply here.

Interesting. Unlike the "last man standing" endgame of Monopoly, Landlord's Game ends after a predetermined number of circuits round the board. So that would indeed be a money contest.

Imperial....loaning money to other countries, forcing their governments to commit political suicide, and walking away with the money while the other nations of Europe are pounding a country into dust.

Hypothetical scenario, loan Germany enough money to create huge army, pressure her to attack her neighbors thereby starting World War 1, rape the German treasury in loan repayment, and then get out before Germany's neighbors annihilate the country. Who said economics couldn't be fun? devil
