Definitely a good score!

I'd like to mention Avalon Hills "remake" of Stocks and Bonds, however - Stock Market Guru.

It's a dice fest, and pretty random, but it's got more predictablity to it than Stocks and Bonds, as it's got a trend board that affects the prices of stocks (some do better in Bull markets, some do better in Bear) as well as the price and yield on the bonds in the game.

I found it much more interesting and fun than Stocks and Bonds, while still retaining the same essentials (Stryker is still around, for example ;).

Just my $.02 worth . . .
