You are a collector of fabulous items. You start with little money but have 9 precious uncashed checks. As you acquire and exhibit your collection, you receive “prize points” that reflect its increased value. The more valuable your collection, the greater the value of your remaining checks and the easier you will find it to buy even more expensive collector items. You buy items whose cards you hold in your hand. But you’ll also bid at hotly-contested auctions. Trading is not only encouraged, it’s often essential to build your collection. When any player buys his 10th item, the game will end. The wealthiest collector is the winner.
- teaches you real world skills that are valuable whether you choose a career in real estate or not.
- Each spin around the board presents opportunities for excitement and profit.
- There is no end to the possibilities, and it never gets boring.
Joel Harden’s MOGUL is a breakthrough – the first board game that is not only fun to play, it actually teaches you real world skills that are valuable whether you choose a career in real estate or not.
Each spin around the board presents opportunities for excitement and profit. Buy a car, try your luck at the casino, or find the Big Shot Investor to sell your properties to. Move tenants into your properties, collect rent and your salary, or even get a hot tip for great deals on properties. MOGUL is an open-ended game.
The goal is to get to a pre-determined net worth first, but how you do it is up to you. Will you leverage every asset you have to gobble up as much property as you can to flip it as fast as possible, or will you take a more conservative approach. Diversify your holdings all over the board, or try and corner a neighborhood, there is no right answer. You’ll find that in MOGUL, a winning player combines solid strategy, good instinct, and a bit of luck. Watch out though – just as in real life, unforeseen events can throw all your plans askew. Just as easily as a new office complex can double your properties’ value, a natural disaster can wipe out your entire neighborhood. Landing on Bills and Maintenance can either bring a $100 fine, or a $20,000 sewage system replacement. Good Luck / Bad Luck cards are just as unpredictable. They can bring a financial windfall, or a divorce. MOGUL not only gives you the big picture, it also lives in the details. When you buy or sell a property, you use essentially the same forms as you would in real life. We take you through the math, calculating finance and acquisition costs, calculating equity, and figuring out your net worth, so you know when you win.
It seems like a lot, and it is, but the game action never stops. There is no end to the possibilities, and it never gets boring. No two games are ever the same.
