    LOL, yeah, my computer was struggling with the size whilst editing, which is why it’s a bit basic… I did manage to put in time stamps for each turn though, so you can skip through!

    My copy of this game is currently in storage, but I seem to remember that it had plastic discs as currency rather than Monopoly money.  Does that make it a first edition copy?  It strikes me that the plastic discs are more robust than paper and so would make for a longer lasting product.  Any idea why they made this change?  It’s a fun game though and this has prompted me to dig out my copy.  I also have Invasion America and bought an old copy of Shogun a fortnight ago.  Any plans to review these old goodies?

    Are you sure you’re not thinking of the plastic discs that are used as a proxy for the pieces when there is no space on the board? This version has them along with the paper money. I know modern versions, such as A&A 1914 did away with the money completely, frustratingly. I have no idea why the change though.

    I’d completely forgotten about Invasion America! My friend had it, so I haven’t played it in over twenty years and as he moved to the States over a decade ago there’s little chance of me getting my hands on his copy! I never played Shogun, but it was always on my ‘to-do’ list.

    Yes, you’re right about the plastic discs now I come to think of it.  I don’t remember the game having bank notes though.  Maybe it did.  In Shogun the currency is plastic discs, so maybe that’s where I’m getting the idea from.
