Description
 
Money rules the world! It doesn't matter whether you collect euros, dollars, or yen as long as the exchange rate is in your favor, and the more you exchange, the more you make - if you plan carefully and keep your wits about you. Players enter the volatile currency market. They begin with a small holding and use it through successive auctions to build a valuable currency portfolio. Each round they bid to exchange a portion of their holdings for new holdings offered on the market or by other players.

One of Knizia's better card games May 31, 2012
Reviewer: EndersGame from BGG  
Knizia has designed a few dud card games over the years, but this is not one of them! Money has stood the test of time, and the new edition is well-deserved and welcome.  Money is clever, fast, deep, tense, satisfying, quick, and has got great components.  As far as auction fillers go, this is a good one!

Players have a portfolio of banknotes which they try to improve. The main mechanics of simultaneous blind bidding, trading, and set-collecting fit very well with the currency theme. Cards are of good quality, and the artwork is superb - the fact that there's a number of inside jokes only adds to the appeal. Game-play is surprisingly quick, with rounds only taking 15 minutes or less. The game scales well, and proved to be a surprising hit in our home.

While not quite in the same league as Knizia's High Society, Money is still an excellent game with the right people, and is a solid Knizia blind-bidding and trading game with a strong theme that deserved this reprint.
