Monopoly for the 2010s?
August 6, 2012 12:19 PM Subscribe
What are some board games that are like a modernized version of Monopoly? Specifically: games that simulate the existing U.S. or global economy, with all the dynamics of lending rates, inflation-deflation, economic cycles, and so forth, and which help give some food on real-world issues for thought during play. The less "dry" and fun, the better, though I know that's a tall order. We have games like Agricola and Settlers of Catan, which are great but those are more in the realm of resource management. Also if there are any computer or console videogames worth considering, that's fine too, but board games would be better.
