Greed by Queen Games Review by Club Fantasci
Club Fantasy is here to tell us if they agree with Gordon Gekko. Is Greed good?
From the website:
Greed is the latest offering from Donald X. Vaccarino and if you’re a card gamer you’ve most likely played and loved his extremely popular Dominion series or you may know him from the Kingdom Builder series that he also designed. The game is for 2-5 players and is set in the late 1960’s as gangs are re-emerging in a powerful way, prior to the Gun Control Act of 1968.
This was a Kickstarter project that funded this past March and arrived to backers over the summer, I received my copy in early July which is very much on time for a June released Kickstarter.
The goal of Greed is to own as much share of the city’s wealth by any means, legal or otherwise, by the end of the 12th round. The game seats 2-5 players equally well and uses 12 card draw piles from which to draft, these piles are then passed clockwise after each draw until they are exhausted in the final round. With 80 cards in the box even a full 5 player game will not see all of the cards provided in play and this helps keep things fresh even after multiple games.
