Games You Should Pick #4: The Stock Market Game

Hi everyone!

I thought since board games are my specialty, I would do a Game of the Week feature where I talk about a different board game and why you should be picking it up. We’ll call this feature Games You Should Pick. To make this interesting, I’m only going to talk about games I’ve actually managed to find and sell. There’s all kinds of games you should be looking out for, like Fireball Island and Dark Tower, but I haven’t managed to find either of those yet!

This week’s game is The Stock Market Game.

Stock Market Game (1)

Stock Market Game: The Aristocrat of Money Games is a family game for 2 to 8 players. The goal is to have the most capital by strategically buying and selling shares of stock at constantly changing prices. The first person to $100,000 wins the game. It was published by Western Publishing Company in 1968.

This game was a popular buy in its time. As such, there’s quite a few of them out there on the market, but many of them are not in the greatest of condition. It was not only popular to buy the year it was released, but it was played like crazy by those who got it. There were two other release years of this game. The 1963 version is actually worth less than this year’s, but there are fewer of the 1963 year out there, and if you can find one in great condition, it might be worth quite a bit. The 1981 release is worth about the same amount as the 1968 release.

I have sold two copies of the 1968 release of this game. The first one was in poor condition. It was well played with and the box has a lot of condition issues. I was able to sell it for $20 plus shipping.  The second one was in much better condition. The box had very few issues and the game did not appear to be handled very much. Because of the lack of condition issues, this one was a much better sale. I was able to sell it for $40 plus shipping. Also, because of the better condition, it sold much faster. This is the truth for any type of board game, the better the condition, the faster it will sell!
