Game: Rats to Riches
Publisher: Accentuate Games
Designer: Eugene Lim
Rats to Riches is a business strategy game about pour rats that collect money (Swindle). They can do that in all sorts of ways. They can buy extra income cards with cheese, but they can also buy pipes and they can even buy a bank! But players can also buy opportunities that make their game easier or make it harder for other players to win. Whoever is the first one to collect 100 Swindle is the winner!
This game has won the gold medal for Best Boardgame in the 2019 Toyshop UK Independent Toy Award. I totally understand that, because this is an amazing game. It is fun, quick and easy to learn. Because of the opportunity cards, the interaction is high, en because there are so many ways to win every game is different. I think I will play this game A LOT! .
