I have always loved this game! It is best with many people, but three can get very intereting. Love the art, love the play, it is all good.

The best 'in between' game I know. It's fast, fun but mean, and I had great times with it!

Always a crowd pleaser at our games meetings. The only game that is never not played for want of eager players.

Game has a bad reputation, but why? 50% of board games are about fighting. This is one of the most fun.

I got this game as a beta back in the day and spread it like wildfire through my city. I have no idea where it is now however. I rate this at 10 because for me it was the beginning of all gaming "beyond Monopoly."

The *best* game about little girls beating each other up for lunch money ever. Only play this game with friends who have a sense of humor.

Lunch money is one of my all time favorite card games. A must for every player who likes good story telling during play.

This is a fun little game, and after you play a couple games, you can develop a feel for the strategy needed to punish everyone else who is playing. Maybe a little violent, but that is a large part of its charm. And drunks can play along with everyone else, which is a good thing in my (unfortunate) playing circles.

Never had any problem teaching this to new players or getting them into the swing of things - it's a good lightweight game. I think the suggestion to take out the choke and headlock cards is a good one; they're much more complicated than anything else in the game and are rarely played (they're just not that good). Plays well with 3-5, gets a little awkward past that (even with multiple sets shuffled together). Probably played it a hundred times or more back in the day.

Comments:
One of the best card games ever made, bar none. Does it need a theme? No. Do you need to roleplay to have fun playing this game? No, but some find it makes the experience better. At it's core Lunch Money is a simple game of beat the crap out of everyone else. Card combos are what you are looking for, and the ability to be versatile and think long term can be really big plusses in this game.

A big drawback to the game though is the lack of instructions on cards for what each card can and can't do. Honestly it makes the game unfun for most first time players (especially playing against those who do know what they do). I wish Atlas would just buck up and make a deluxe version of the game with cards that have instructions for play, they would probably find a lot more willing customers that way.

Viva Lunch Money!
