What a game!!! This has to be my favorite negotiation game I’ve ever played. The board state changes just enough each round that values fluctuate accordingly and you’re driven to make a deal before you’re sitting on worthless property. I absolutely love the freedom the game grants you in negotiations and does so in a way that keeps the interactions from becoming contentious. While there’s certainly some luck involved in the random draw, it shouldn’t be enough to deter you from winning if you’re a cunning enough negotiator. This one has skyrocketed straight into my top 10 and I can’t wait to play again!
A classic. The design doesn’t contain any extra chaff. It’s just a perfect framework for interesting negotiations.
