This week we played a game that’s all about flipping normality on it’s head.
Last Will is a game in which the goal is to spend as much money as quickly as possible, and the firs player to go bankrupt is declared the winner, which is absolutely the opposite of traditional money-based games like monopoly.
It’s very much like taking on the role of the irresponsible wastrel that are the immoral paragons of Jan Austen novels. I’m essentially playing Mr. Wickham. The game’s art contributes to this ethos, and I’m almost entirely positive that the Victorian and Edwardian indulgence of the British Nobility is exactly the tenor of the game.
So if you’re looking to flip some of your board game preconceptions around, Last Will is a pretty fun little title.
