How to Play BIG MONEY
In Big Money, dreams of becoming a technology mogul or sports franchise owner are about to come true. The object of the game is simple— have the most money when the bank runs out! Each of the 1 to 5 players starts with a starting Asset in one of the 5 Industries: Sports, Food, Travel, Entertainment, or Technology. Then, players take turns rolling 5 dice, rerolling some to get better combinations, like a Straight, Full House, or even 5 of a Kind. Depending on your final roll, you’ll earn money to spend on more Assets from the Market.
Along with the 5-number dice, an Industry die is rolled every turn to determine which kind of assets will reward bonus money that turn. Will you work to dominate a particular industry, getting big payouts when your lucky symbol is rolled, or diversify to try and collect every turn? But watch out— Biz News cards can have harsh consequences for you and your competitors, like Bubble Bursts, Liquidation, Industry Crashes, and Antitrust Fines!
Anyone who’s played popular dice or money games will quickly see what’s to like about Big Money. We recommend ages 8 and up, but with a little help, people of all ages can have fun playing. In Big Money, there’s something to love for everyone!

We bought this game to take with us for our family reunion, and it was a HUGE hit! It is fun for kids and adults, easy to learn and play. We love how the money is big, and not tiny little squares of paper, and the fact that you are playing with ZILLIONS of dollars! A very fun and entertaining game that kept our family engaged and playing together for an entire holiday weekend.
Our kids are big fans of Monopoly, but aren't fans of how long the game takes. Big Money is a twist of Monopoly meets Yahtzee. There are so many twists and turns at the drop of the hat. You almost think you have the game beat and another twist changes the dynamic of the game. Never count yourself out! Super easy to catch on and the quality of the product is great. This has quickly become a new family favorite! I received this game in exchange for my honest opinion.
Awesome game!! I love how applicable to real-life this game is. My kids got an intro-lesson to the business world... and they loved every minute of it! This is a cross between Yahtzeee and Monopoly, and it has an ending to the game-yay!! This is a great for a family game night and for a classroom!
This is a fun family game that is easy to learn and play! Your goal in the game is to build up a stock portfolio and hope that it pays off with the die roll every turn. So there is a lot of luck in this game, if that's not your thing then stay clear, but if you like playing the odds and betting big then it is a LOT of fun!! Having your stocks payout isn't the only way to make money though, so bad rolls can be slightly mitigated. On your turn you are also rolling 5 dice attempting to make a poker hand to make some bonus money. Get lucky with those dice and you can make a decent amount as well! Onto components! The cards and all of the cardboard pieces are great. The money on the other hand is paper. I filled the banker role and it was slightly irratating to have to count out hundreds of dollars in paper money...but it doesn't take away too much from the game. Overall, I would highly recommend this game to anyone looking for a quick push your luck stock game!
First, the artwork in this game is phenomenal! Every picture is fun and colorful, and the box at is no exception. That said, I really wish that the cards were a little more sturdy; they don't really get messed with too much during the game, which is good. I don't think they'd hold up very well to too much use. This game is a lot like Yatzee, and I really enjoyed that. The added game elements of making zillions and zillions of dollars was also super fun. It's not an expensive game, and I think the quality of the pieces is probably worth the money, I just wish with such fun artwork that the quality was a little higher! There were a few minor holes in the game play, but it's a very kid/family friendly game! I was given a copy of this game so that I could play it and provide an honest review. My opinion is completely my own.
Feeling lucky? Like chucking dice? This may be the game for you. The play is simple. Roll your dice (yahtzee style) and depending on the result of your dice, earn zillions of dollars. Now you have money to invest! Do you invest that money in more assets or pay up for more expensive stocks? Sounds fancy and complicated, but really the gameplay is mega easy. Depending on how you invest your money you can earn money each time someone rolls. Whoever has the most money at the end wins. Ironically, Wonder Forge didn't seem to invest big money into the production of the game. Instructions explained the game well and game play is fine enough, but the components of the game are pretty cheap. The cards are flimsy and money bills are thin and tend to stick together (think Monopoly bills). (still wonder why they use those hard to remove stickers to seal the box versus shrink, too). Not sure if it will hit the table that much, but our younger boys seemed to enjoy the game and understand easily how to play (ages 9-13). We received our copy as part of a promotion
We received this game as part of a promotion in exchange for an honest review. As other reviews have stated, this game is a sort-of Yahtzee/Monopoly combo. We played with four adults and we were all surprised at how fun it was (none of us were big on Yahtzee, and only one of us like playing Monopoly). The game is quick and easy to learn, and actual play time is about 30 minutes. While the odds of winning tend to rely a little heavily on chance, you can use some strategy when determining your purchases. In one round my husband tried buying up a ton of stocks to win, while another player tried buying strictly business ventures. We came to the conclusion that you need a combination of both. We haven't yet played with our kids, but I'd venture that the suggested age is probably right on. I think our younger kids would be a little bored, and they wouldn't really understand the concept of the game. The game itself is nice quality, but the dice cup seemed pointless to us so we didn't use it after the first couple turns - it was late and the cup just made the dice loud. Also, the paper money is a little lackluster...doesn't seem like it would hold up long term if you aren't careful about it (if young kids get a hold of it regularly, for example). Overall, this is a fun easy play, good for when you are short on time and are looking for a quick game.
Nicely designed game pieces, easy set-up, quick playing game that's a great mix between Monopoly and Yahtzee. There's not a lot of thought or strategy involved, your luck is really driven by the roll of the dice. You collect asset and stock cards and accumulate money depending on players rolling a colored die (that coordinates with the industry of your asset cards). Having to roll more biz news pig opportunities would make the game more difficult as they typically wipe out most of your money (like paying rent in Monopoly), but that would also extend your play time. Playing with two people took about 30 minutes. I would have liked it to run a little longer, but that's personal preference. Can't speak to timing with more than 2 players, although you can play with up to 5 people. All in all, a quick and easy game for when you don't want to spend hours on two gaming classics. My favorite aspect is that it really quickens up Monopoly and there's no tedious point scoring paperwork like there is with Yahtzee. I received this game in exchange for my honest opinion.
