Are you ready to take on the world of business? with Logo Billionaire board game you can buy and sell famous brands and if you are the first to reach a billion you win! We were kindly sent this to review.
Drumond Park sent UnderTheChristmasTree the new fun and exciting game which had us all acting like power hungry little Donald Trumps. It’s a brilliant card- and cash-collecting board game which reveals a surprising amount about people’s personalities – and even more about their scary alter-egos.
If you are looking for a game which is going to get the whole family joining in over Christmas then we can safely say this would top our list.
How to play:
Once we got the board all set up, which was very easy and quick to do, you simply put the cards on the colour they match, deal out the money and randomly choose your Certificate of Ownership for their corporation and match the playing piece to this, for example this could be Castle, Rocket or even the Eagle.
Looking around the table I can tell this is the only time in the office anyone of us would be a Billionaire so it was a case of giving it all that I had, this didn’t last long for me but Elaine seemed to be buying and selling all over the table! There are 2 versions of the game – Apprentice and Executive version both bursting with big named brands such as Jaffa Cakes, PG Tips, Ford and more, the aim is to put famous brands together to form companies which you then launch onto the stock market from the six colour coded categories.
Using the spinner in the middle of the board, you move your playing piece around the board whilst collection Brand Cards, you will need to collect at least three brand cards from one category to launch a company – sounds easy? Well that part is but when you launch your company it’s all about holding your nerve, and seeing if you have the guts to make big make-or-break decisions, I held back and lost.
Taking a card from the top of the ‘Risky Business’ pile gives you the valuation for each brand in your company, this could be as big as 20 million, you take as many as you wish and add up the amount each of the cards by multiplying by the number of brands you hold within that company, this gives you the final valuation, however beware your risky business card could leave you bust.
As you you go tentatively round the board buying brands and float as many new companies as you can to beat your rivals the first person to reach the billion is the winner of Apprentice Logo Billionaire, I can safely say my nerves were on edge and everyone in the office really did think they were the next Lord Sugar!
Check out our official demonstration of the game below from our official YouTube channel:
Once completed the apprentice version, only then are you ready to move onto the bigger and better game – executive version!
This adds in more excitement and drama including a Take-Over card and Auction bids, both a huge game changer. If you land on a Take-over icon, you take a token and keep it until an opportunity is thereto challenge your opponents company launches, it really is good for the token holder, bad for the other poor player as you will then battle it out to get the greatest value when adding to your new company.
Once played a few times, the executive version really is a lot of fun but it does put your smart money making business head to the test. Can you crush your opponents fortunes? Or will you be hung out to dry with no money or companies.
Drumond Park LOGO Billionaire is suitable for ages 8 and older. This is the follow up from Best of TV and Movies and Logo What am I board games, both of which were extremely popular last christmas. You can buy this new game from the UK suppliers mentioned at the top of the page from around £29.99.
