This morning I’ve been reading about an exciting new board game called “Market Meltdown” Invented by Will Sorrell it has been described as Monopoly on drugs.
Each player navigates a private jet around a board, getting Banker’s bonuses and playing the stock market in the form of a roulette wheel. Everytime a player passes go, they must pay back their creditors double the sum they have borrowed, forcing them to borrow more and make more desperate gambles. The winner is the last “rogue trader ” standing. The game was developed in the wake of another Wall Street Crash and never lasts more than 45 minutes, it is designed to be quick and energetic. priced at £29.99 it’s not cheap, but it is flying off the shelves in Fortnum and Mason.
