Description

I will help you be the hero of the party, game night, or family gathering by helping you make simple, informed decisions on which board games, video games, and outdoor games to invest your valuable time and money. Assets are collected and defended with matching cards or with the wild cards: the Gold and Silver cards.

The decision space is limited enough that downtime doesn’t increase a ton, and also you can get robbed by any player at any time, so there’s still stuff happening even when it isn’t your turn. The first several times playing, I would try to save these valuable wild cards to help in my battles to protect or steal, but most often I lost them (that turn or the next player’s turn or the next). This part of the game can be quite boring and will take a little time if you have won a lot of challenges. If more than one player hits that mark at the end of a round, the player with the highest total wins.

While I sincerely hope no fist fights break out while playing Cover Your Assets, there will be plenty of thefts and power battles. After the draw pile is emptied, players continue playing in the same manner just without the ability to replenish their hand. After the last card is played, players total up the value of all cards in their asset pile and add that to their score from prior rounds. The story line is simple: protect your assets in the form of baseball cards, jewelry, a classic car, and more…or the coveted gold and silver (worth a lot!

It would be nice if there were a way to defend against that sort of behavior, but that’s more of a social problem than a game problem.Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy and Cookie Statement and Your California Privacy Rights. If the top card of the discard pile matches a card from your hand, you may take it and play the pair in your asset pile. However when you attempt this your opponent can challenge the set and try to steal it away from you.

That means, if it was not your turn and you were challenged and used cards to defend, then after the hard fought battle, you will draw cards to refill your hand. Now that I have been on both sides, I can honestly tell you the Pros and Cons of the game, Cover your Assets ( other games by Grandpa Beck I would highly recommend).

The material on this site may not be reproduced, distributed, transmitted, cached or otherwise used, except with the prior written permission of Condé Nast. Gloating, smugness, and cheeky smirks abound in this fast paced, crazy fun game that will have players battling, laughing, jaws dropping, and fist pumping their way to financial success. Be careful though - your top set of assets can be stolen by other players - if they hold a matching card or wild card. I mean, you may not appreciate the pun, but beyond that it’s a fairly simple, fairly quick, and fairly cute game. Your first pair is safe and cannot be stolen; any stacks that are covered by other stacks are also safe .

I think, generally, that’s Grandpa Beck’s wheelhouse, so this is another solid title in that line, I’d argue. To challenge another player, you must have at least one set of assets in your own stack, and the player you are challenging must have at least two. Well, at the rate you can stack up assets in Cover Your Assets by Grandpa Beck’s Games, you’ll have a great chance of getting to a million in no time. Each new set that is created is stacked crosswise on top of the previous set, covering, and protecting, all the sets beneath it.While you can add more players by combining sets, it is also recommended just to split into multiple groups of up to 6 players each. Now, if you lay down a stamp collection pair, for example, anyone else with a stamp collection card (or wild) can opt to steal the pair from you. Here you’ll find all our top game recommendations so you and your family can play only the best games together! Because you have the high valued wild cards, you really need to develop a strategy for how you are going to use them, and under which assets you are going to try to hide and bury them so that you can keep them.
