A fun game from the Christmas 2008 edition of The Economist, Credit Crunch: the board game provides players with 500m "econos" each and one player doubles as banker. The aim is to be the last solvent player. In order to achieve this, players try to eliminate the competition. Risk cards encourage players to pick on each other. It tackles economic topics such as bankruptcy, takeovers, quantitative easing and risk. Organisers will need to download and print off the PDF gaming board, risk cards and pieces, as well as providing four coins to act as dice.
