I recently received a new board game to try out for a review. “Fair Go” was designed by retired school teacher, Andrea Thompson.This game is suited for ages 8 and up, and can be a lot of fun for the family or a board games night in with friends, with 2 to 6 players.
We played with two players, and it certainly made for a fun game. You never know which way the game is going to go – I was up with properties, then picked up a card saying “I was retiring” so forced to sell off two of my properties.The “Fair Go” cards are unpredictable – you can be winning grants one minute, and then suffering from a natural disaster the next – so it really is anyone’s game!
It was a lot of fun, we both enjoyed it and I can easily see how with six players it would be a lot more challenging to win as you’d have less opportunities to purchase the properties and others can block you from being able to place a ring on a property too.It’s definitely worth checking out, and is a great educational tool for children as it teaches them about how the industry works, and how your decisions can affect the game play (as well as including realistic scenarios in the form of natural disasters, donating to charities, winning grant funds etc).
