Essen 2008 – Tulipmania 1637

The second game to be released by JKLM Games at Essen is Tulipmania 1637, designed by everyone’s favourite video-blogger, Scott Nicholson.

In Tulipmania, you are playing a wily investor who has a network of buyers and colleagues, all of whom are also trying to become wealthy. Your goal is to make smart investments, artificially raise prices, fleece your network at the best time, and then make your escape from Tulipmania with the most money. Eric Martin from Boardgamenews has compared the game to Reiner Knizia’s Modern Art, which definitely suggests it’s worth a look.

Further information is available on the JKLM website, including details of a pre-order discount.
